Samsung unveiled a slew of phones today, and, sure enough, what we'd come to know as the Louvre is in fact the Omnia Pro. (It's the horizontal slider you see open here, next to the Samsung Jack, which also got some face time.)
Here's hoping the Omnia Pro gets picked up in the states. Because if you recall, the specs aren't anything to sneeze at:
- Quad-band EDGE, HSDPA (the 7.2Mbps)
- 800MHz processor.
- 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen at 480x800
- 5MP camera (no flash)
- FM radio
- 1GB ROM
- Bluetooth 2.0
- WiFi b/g
- 1500mAh battery
- Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional (will receive the 6.5 upgrade)
Speaking of the Samsung Jack, its official name also is in the Omnia Pro family. It's the Omnia Pro B7320, while the "Omnia Pro" itself is the B7610. So allow us to sigh as we have to deal with yet another "Pro" line.
No release date yet for the Omnia Pro (the B7320 -- see what we mean?).

Maybe I'm mistaken, but are those all new devices? Any chance we could get a brief rundown on them?
Engadget is saying for the USA it is Verizon bound. I can't find confirmation on that. Perhaps it is just their assumption(?) http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/15/samsung-omnia-ii-now-official-amoled-...
we've got the feature phone, their andriod device (i forgot the name), the Omnia Pro, and also the Jack.
i was really thinking this may be a good surprise alternative to the touch pro 2....but seriously, if the 135MB of ram is true, this is a super punt. no way in hell, in 2009 i would upgrade from my tilt @ 128 mb of ram, to this...which will surely be @ least 299+ on contract if it were US bound. even if it had a snapdragon in it, 135 is reason enough to barry bonds grand slam that thing the hell outta here. ugh
Me want! Man I can have fun with those, damn sexy. Oh and the phones aren't too bad either.
WHERE IS THE GPS UNLOCK FOR VZW OMNIA?????????
man i just hope the louvre or Pro is released on vzw. All i want is a good touch screen slider phone on vzw when its upgrade time, but ive seen it mentioned that it will have EDGE internet and t-mobile uses that i think.
