Samsung’s milestone Open OS model, the Omnia, was launched last year and it is now followed with three new models, the first of which to be releases is the Omnia II (I8000).
The Omnia II is designed for the smartphone user who demands an enhanced and convenient multimedia experience. Like the original Omnia, this is also a Windows device, featuring Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, unlike the Omnia HD that ran on Symbian.
This device looks pretty much like the Samsung Jet, yet it may be even more fun to play with. It has an enormous 3.7 inch AMOLED display for crystal clear WVGA resolution, pushing it up into the iPhone rivalry stakes we think. The Omnia II offers excellent screen clarity, even in daylight, which is always a useful trait. Complete with larger icons and a simpler structure, Omnia II provides a touchoptimised user interface, TouchWiz 2.0, plus 3D effects to make enjoying multimedia and multi tasking convenient and easy to use.
Also, advanced resistive touch enables faster, more accurate touch response for a touchy-feely experience that’s 100% user friendly, so no more stabbing away at the screen with your finger while scowling furiously, as everything except what you want pops up.
