Samsung officially announces Omnia II and other additions to the Omnia Family

The phone seen above, the Omnia II was officially announced by Samsung, and it is heading to Verizon for its US debut. It features a 3.7 inch AMOLED resistive touchscreen with WVGA (480 x 800) resolution, HSDPA / HSUPA 3G, 5 megapixel camera, 720 x 480 video capture at 30fps, 2GB-16GB internal storage with microSD expansion, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, AGPS, and TouchWiz 2.0 UI running Windows Mobile 6.1.

Other additions to the Omnia family are:

OmniaPRO B7610 - A hybrid touch/QWERTY form factor. It features an AMOLED touch screen, Windows Mobile, push email, Microsoft Office, 5 Megapixel camera, WiFi, Opera 9.5 browser, GPS, HSDPA 3G. Probably just an Omnia II with a physical keyboard.

OmniaPRO B7320 - A cross between a Blackberry Curve and the HTC Snap. It seems as if Samsung is marketing this as a messaging phone. Has push email, Facebook, Myspace, IM, Google Talk, Yahoo Chat, 2 Megapixel camera, FM radio, and WiFi.

OmniaLITE - A cross between a multimedia and a business phone. Features an "easy" interface with a dull support of multimedia internet and business features, WIndows Mobile 6.1 TouchWiz 2.0 UI (with downloadable widgets), #D multimedia player, multi-push email, Microsoft Office, Opera Browser, HSDPA & WiFi, 3 megapixel camera, and AGPS.

Samsung Jet - While this is not part of the Omnia family, its worth noting this phone. It does not sport Windows Mobile like the Omnia's, but it does have an 800MHZ processor, 5 megapixel camera, 3.1 inch AMOLED screen, WebKit-based Dolfin browser, and a bunch of media features, including DVIX support. Its also running TouchWiz 2.0. It looks as if it could be in the Omnia family, but its not...
