Verizon Announces Samsung Omnia

The Omnia's announced, everybody, at long last. It'll be online tomorrow and in business channels around the same time, in physical stores on December 8th. Counting legacy devices, the Omnia is the 7th phone currently available on Verizon's network. That's nothing to sneeze at. Neither are the Omnia specs, which match what have been rumored:

  • 240x400 screen
  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • 5mp Camera
  • 624 MHz Processor
  • 128 RAM (sigh), but 8gb onboard storage
  • TouchWIZ interface
  • Opera 9.5 Browser
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, EVDO
  • GPS
  • DIVX support

Samsung's sticking with the optical mouse and the lack of a 3.5mm headset jack. What they're not sticking is 'it-to-you' with the price, which is a reasonable (for these features and specs) $249 after rebates.

Check the press release if you're into that kind of thing, otherwise the Giz has some first impressions. [via Engadget]
