The long-awaited replacement for the Samsung Omnia will supposedly be released by Verizon in about two weeks. This carrier first announced plans to offer this Windows phone in June.
Windows Mobile 6.5 will debut on several models next week, but the Omnia II apparently won’t be one of them. Instead, it will supposedly launch with the current version of the operating system — 6.1 — and an upgrade will be released at a later date.
The price Veriizon plans to charge for this smartphone remains a mystery.
