samsung-i900-omniaGood news for anyone looking for Samsung’s next foray into a  touchecreen, the Omnia is now proudly displayed on their website as “coming soon”.

We first knew this was coming back in February when we announced the Palm Treo Pro was coming. Then last week a teaser video was put online showing off a new device was coming soon to Canada. All signs have pointed to that blurred out image to be the Omnia.

The Omnia is describes as “More than a Phone” as it comes with a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus, flash and video, 3.2 inch touchscreen (240 x 400 pixels) with an accelerometer and handwriting recognition, Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, 8GB of internal memory with a staggering capability of holding up to 24GB, Upload images and videos instantly to Facebook, Flickr & MySpace… for surfing the web it has a full HTML browser through Opera Mobile.

In addition, the overall size is 112 x 56.9 x 12.5 mm and weighs in at 122 grams. Bell and Telus will be releasing this soon (very soon) and we’ll have a review of this shortly. Check it out at Samsung Canada here.

Thanks SA5195!

    I guess we'll have to see if Bell butchers this Samsung smartphone like they did with the Instinct. Bell has kind of tarnished any Samsung phone that they offer now after that fiasco.
