Hands-on with the Euro Samsung Omnia Pro

Swung by the Samsung booth at CES (follow all of our coverage here). Once you're able to navigate the dizzying maze of television screens -- and we're talking hundreds here -- you can finally find some Windows phones. Tucked in the back and a little to the left.

And it was there that we found the European version of the Omnia II, the Omnia Pro, with its Touchwiz interface. While it's hardly fair to judge the quickness of any phone after it's been handled at the likes of CES, the Omnia II seemed a bit sluggish considering it has an 800MHz processor. And I'm still not crazy about the user interface, though it does look gorgeous on that 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Anyhoo, find pics of the Omnia II at CES after the break.

  • Uh, the Omnia 2 has been out for a while now and it sucks. Phil, were you sleeping for the last month? Is this really post worthy? Why not do a hands on with the Touch Pro 2? Better yet, the Palm Pro.
  • Love hopw u say the Omnia 2 is an Old phone , but yet its about 1 year NEWER then the Palm pro and the HTC pro 2. LOL Not to menshion does phones both suck compare to the O2
  • lol. That's the European version up there, which we haven't had our hands on. Oh, BTW: I assume you mean Treo Pro, and post-worthy should be hyphenated. :P
  • What are the difference between the Euro Omnia II & the Canadian Omnia II?
  • Ha. The title of the post was corrected. It said omnia pro 2. Slick.
