10 minutes with the Bell Samsung Omnia II

Who's up for some quality time with the Bell version of the Samsung Omnia II? Howard Chui (for whom the infamous Howard Forums are named) takes us through a 10-minute unboxing of the 3.7-inch, 800MHz behemoth. His side-by-side with the Original Omnia is night and day -- you just can't beat that AMOLED screen. We're still not totally sold on Touchwiz II (though it's certainly better than Touchwiz I), but we do like having different UIs to choose from. Peep the video after the break.

  • Having watched a number of videos on the HTC HD2 it is hard to see this Omnia II as a top contender, at least based on this preview. The Omnia II is coming to Verizon in December and they already have the HTC Imagio. It would be interesting to see a head to head write-up between these two new Windows Mobile devices. (Maybe a little suggestion to our trusty wmexperts crew?) Just to make things a bit interesting, I'm predicting the Imagio will come out the better of the two.
  • can you turn off touch wiz and just run titanium???
  • Three letters..... H-T-C This phone does nothing for me. Nothing about the O-II screams 800mhz cpu to me.
  • I would like to see TouchOne on it ;-)
