Whoopsie. It appears Samsung just spilled a few more beans as to the existence of the Omnia II on Verizon.
We'd already seen an inventory sheet from Best Buy showing the phone on the Big V. The Boy Genius Report now says the Aug. 23 date listed there is an in-stock date and not an actual launch date. But BGR also has spied the Omnia II on Samsung's Web site. And at the time of this writing, the site now lists "We apologize but we are currently doing maintenance. Please try back in a few minutes."
"Maintenance," as we all know, is code for "All right. ... Who screwed the pooch?"
So, look for the Omnia II any time now, most likely.
Update: OK, so the peanut gallery, er, folks in the comments are saying this page actually had been up for a few days. And to that we respond thusly.

the site (that is pictured) has been active for a while now (a few weeks) and has not changed. Seems as if Verizon has Samsung gagged quite well. If only a date would appear out of the mist we know as Verizon's Marketing Dept...
um... that page has been up on the samsung website since august 20th... AND was emailed out to people on the mailing list... this is no news, and pretty sure its not a mistake... also- (no undergoing maintenance message) its still there AND there is a box on the main samsung mobile page as well...
Reports from a Best Buy ad said in store September 6th FWIW..
I wonder why they just posted an outline of the phone instead of the phone itself. Kinda lame marketing if you ask me.
no it was on way before Aug20th.....
Hey guys, Samsung has a new phone coming out, the OMNIA II!..oh wait, that's old news, just like this!
I am hoping they only have a sillouette of the omnia 2 because it could be the white version and they wouldn't want to reveal this yet. Im hoping for it.

This is a big important step for WP and rounds off the already well received Office hub. If you are using OCS 2007 then you are right Lync is not compatable as it runs off the 2010 technology. In fact install Lync on your computer running OCS 2007 and you will find a nice spangly copy of Lync but no way of using it.
