The Samsung I8000 Omnia 2 has been busy. First, as we previously noted in Friday's News Bits, the handset made it through the FCC with all the appropriate boxes checked by the Feds. While no carrier designations have been made, the device is sporting UMTS 850/1900 which means the Omnia 2 could be heading to AT&T in the States and to Rogers in Canada, but for now it looks like Latin America will be home for this model. The handset carries a 3.7 inch AMOLED, WVGA resistive screen featuring Advanced R Touch for quicker and more accurate touch response. The unit also features a 5MP camera, dual LED flash, geotagging, and AF with smile and face detection. While the phone will be powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 professional, Samsung's TouchWiz 2.0 will be on board, offering a 3D UI, all running on an 800MHz processor.
After spending some time with the FCC, the Omnia 2 took off to star in a nice little video for your viewing pleasure. No, it isn't South Beach, but we're sure the device had a great time. All that is lacking now is some definitive word on the carrier, launch date and pricing.
