Samsung Omnia headed for AT&T? Still has bizzare-o screen. Matches other black slabs.

Oh boy, the Samsung i900 aka Omnia appears to be heading to...wait for it...AT&T in Q3.

If you recall, the i900 has some pretty nice specs for a media device (that is in no way a response to that other phone, we swear..uh huh):

  • QuandBand Edge and HSDPA that should work in the US
  • Five Megapixel camera
  • FM Radio, Bluetooth, Wifi
  • 400 x 240 screen
  • Custom interface on top of Windows Mobile
  • GPS
  • 624 MHz Processer
  • 16 gigs of storage and a microSD slot

Pretty nice iClone except for that strange screen, which if it were VGA might be worth talking about. But that GUI seems interesting at least, we suppose.

Samsung will also receive the honor of being the 6 billionth "Black Slab" phone on the market (Instinct, Diamond, Diamond Pro, iPhone, Voyager, p560, Xenium, BB Thunder, Shine, Glyde, Prada, iPerformer, LG Vue, Paris, e66, etc.) Once again, "innovation" in the industry wins out.

Congratulations Samsung! Next.

Is it just me or is every one else as pissed because suddenly device makers don't feel like including tri-band HSDPA in their phones... If the HTC TYTN 2 can do HSDPA at 850, 1900, and 2100MHz, then how come the Diamond, Xperia, and Omnia have seperate models for their US vs. everywhere else 3G bands? Is it really that hard to make a phone that has all these other bands in it? I was looking forward to a Quad-Band 3G device too... You know, one that could even do that one 1700 band that T-Mobile picked up... Oh well...
Ok enough of my rant, the omnia is a nice device... I'm glad to see samsung put some real iPhone type storage into a WinMo phone and still keep the SD slot. I'll trade the extra pixels of VGA for better battery life anyday, as long as the screen can still be legible and be read in the sunshine.

Looks alot like the Instinct on Sprint in shape, screen and looks. Is that by chance or is it a modified version to run WM?

Its the same company, but I dont think they share much similarities.
