Hands-On with the Samsung Omnia 2 (GSM)

Oh, hello Samsung Omnia 2, how are you? We're really digging the AMOLED screen (at least we are on the indoor-show floor), which is plenty responsive. The 800x480 is quite nice too, but the rich and deep colors are the real show here. You can take a look at Sammy's cube interface in the quick vid above, but it's more flash than substance.

8 gigs of storage, 256 megs of RAM, an 800MHz processor, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and yes, that 8 megapixel camera round out the specs on this device. This is the version with Windows Mobile 6.5, which is to say it's the GSM version, which is to say that the Verizon version is currently running WinMo 6.1. ...Which is to say that all things considered, it's best to avoid thinking about the that particular stumble by taking a gander at the handful of photos after the break.
