Is Samsung OMNIA coming to AT&T?
This article contains unofficial information.
So, will AT&T offer the Samsung OMNIA?
There is no official information, but a solid rumor lacks as well. Some people claim that the OMNIA will come to AT&T, meanwhile, others refuse it. One of our readers (thanks Billal!) tipped us that AT&T is testing the i907, but instead of “OMNIA” it is called the “Mirage”. It should be coming out on October 07, 2008. Although it is likely for AT&T to use a different name, it is also possible that the model number indicates another phone by Samsung.
i780. Yet, it would be more reasonable if it is numbered as the i787, using the original model and adding the AT&T-friendly “7” in the end. It is also possible that it will be a non-touch successor of the BlackJack (i607) and BlackJack II (i617) phones, but the logical number for it would be the i627. However, such model also exists (of course it isn’t officially announced), but there are opinions that it will be in slider form-factor, similar to the i620. We did our magic and it seems that the i907 FCC sketch corresponds to the BlackJack II. This brings another question: will the BlackJack III has the same back as its predecessor, or Samsung has used this sketch for illustration purposes only…
Currently, we cannot say for sure that the OMNIA is coming to AT&T. However, we do think that it would be logical to use the i907 number for an OMNIA-like phone and guess that the different sketch is because it has been used just for illustration. Still, having no official information, we cannot guarantee this is the real deal.

I personally think that the Samsung Omnia will be going to T-Mobile. I think this way because T-Mobile is the only carrier who lacks a full touch screen phone and since this phone has been known for a couple of months now without possitive confirmation of which carrier it will be going to, that makes me think that T-Mobile might be the one getting. I also think this way because it is known that T-Mobile will be offering a full touch screen phone soon.

Yeah, it's the Tocco overseas (Italian for "touch") and it has been referred to as the Samsung t919 for T-Mobile USA.
