Samsung to make major U.S. product announcement tomorrow; is it the Omnia II?
In the midst of showing off its' new handsets at CTIA, like the Behold II and the Intrepid, Samsung plans on making a major U.S. product announcement tomorrow. Scheduled for the 30 minutes between 11am and 11:30am, Eastern Time, the Korean manufacturer could be introducing the long-awaited Omnia II. Our last report on the device discussed a launch for Verizon in the middle of this month, equipped with Windows Mobile 6.1. But don't fret, our earlier story quoted the source as saying that a ROM update to 6.5 would follow not too long after launch. Now we know how long everyone has been waiting for the 3.7 inch AMOLED display, Wi-Fi and the 5MP camera, so tonight when the stars are out, look for one that is falling and wish hard. Perhaps Samsung will respond tomorrow with news about the Omnia II.

All the other phones usually come out within a reasonable amount of time after they have been announced. But this one seems forever. I bet its the Omnia II... We waited to long for this phone.

Anyone think that is will be the announcement of their first Android phone for Sprint. The instinct Q. just a thought being that it passed the FCC and still no word on it. And it will be the first here in the states for Samsung.????????????????

Heads up - The Omnia 2 was sent back to Samsung to have Windows 6.5 put on it. It failed testing with 6.1 on it for being way too slow. It is suppose to launch next year or close to end of this year. Sorry......

Thats pretty cute. I'm sure both businesses don't want to lose that much money flashing all of those roms. Especially since it's leaked with a projection date of end of this month/beginning of next.

where did u get that info about the Omnia II being sent back for being too slow??? that just sounds ridiculous...the phone would not have been sent out in the first place if it failed testing...when the Omnia II was released in Singapore it was announced that it would have 6.1 and be upgraded to 6.5 later...that is old news...so why haven't the Omnia II's in Asia, and Europe been sent back??? because there is nothing wrong with them...
