Verizon Wireless has released the long-awaited Samsung Omnia II, a high-end Windows phone with a large AM-OLED display.
It was first announced way back in June, and Verizon quickly committed to offering it. Five months later, it’s finally going to hit the market.
An Overview of the Samsung Omnia II
This newly-released smartphone boasts a number of enhancements over the original version.
On top of Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro is the second version of Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, which has been developed to make smartphones easy to control with a fingertip.
It has 8 GB of internal storage plus a microSD card slot, potentially bringing its capacity up to 40 GB.
This CDMA device also sports Verizon’s fastest version of mobile broadband: EV-DO Rev. A, plus Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR.
In addition, the Omnia II has a 5 MPx camera with flash, GPS, Opera Mobile 9.5, 1,500 mAh battery, and more.
Overall, this phone is 4.75 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.5 inches thick. It weighs 5.0 ounces.
Pricing and Availability
Verizon is charging $200 for this model. Getting this price requires a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate, though.
