We're just a couple of hours away from the official launch of Windows Phone 7 -- and you will be joining us for the liveblog -- but that doesn't mean there's not already a bit of news about.

First up is the Samsung Omnia 7, which broke its cover on a Russian Sammy site before pulling its head back its shell. We've seen it before, but there it is, folks, in its officially rendered glory.

Then there's an update to the Zune desktop software, which you're going to need to rock a Windows Phone. (And besides that, it's just a killer multimedia contest system.) [Samsung via Slashgear]
