Verizon’s Touch Pro now available, Omnia announced
The Holidays will be holy for Verizon Wireless smartphone users as two of the hottest Windows Mobile smartphones are coming to the carrier stores.

For $349.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate, the HTC Touch Pro can be yours. Just as the Sprint and GSM variants, it should be a great ‘professional’ companion, with its high-res VGA display, smooth look and excellent QWERTY keyboard. Strangely, the pictures do not show the TouchFLO 3D interface but we hope it will be available.

If you are looking for a fun phone, then the Samsung Omnia is more suitable for you. The Big Red version is almost identical to the original GSM one, which is very good. Features include personalized interface, 5MP camera with auto-focus and flash (yeah, that’s the first for the carrier) and support for a variety of video formats, including DivX, for quality playback on the wide display. Samsung showcases the Verizon-branded Omnia on its site but there is no official information when it will be available for purchase. Our sources claim that you’ll be able to order it online tomorrow and in-stores on December 08. *Update* Verizon officially confirmed these dates and say that the price will be $250 after a $70 mail-in rebate and a contract.
