Samsung announces TouchWiz powerful phones for the US, Omnia likely to be included

Apart from Sprint’s Instinct and Verizon’s Glyde, Samsung has not shown too much full-touch love for the US. But today, the South Korean giant has announced the future US release of “powerful phones” that are based on its proprietary TouchWiz User Interface. 

The end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 will bring several such handsets to US customers. Samsung has not yet mentioned the names of the upcoming devices.

What it did mention is that the TouchWiz interface was made popular around the world by handsets like Samsung F480 and Samsung Omnia. We already knew this, of course, but the fact that the manufacturer slipped these names into the press release announcing the “US TouchWiz” might mean both of them will hit the States soon. Omnia was already spotted in a document that indicates it will be launched by Verizon, so all this might come true.     

(this here is Samsung Omnia, obviously)

For those who don’t know, Samsung’s TouchWiz is a customizable interface especially created for touchscreen handsets. It features preinstalled widgets that should allow users to personalize a handset and make it the way they want.   

Regardless of the TouchWiz handsets Samsung is preparing for the US, one thing is clear: Samsung wants more of its mobile devices to be released there. And that’s good news, isn’t it?

    I have just discover a new way to get the samsung omnia almost for free.
    All you have to do is to register here
    Then you should choose your gift, in this case the samsung omnia for 37 credits.
    You can earn credits by referring people (1 credit each referral that activates their acount by completing one offer)
    Other way to earn credits its by completing the offers, you earn 1 to 4 credits for each offer, some are for free and some you should buy something.
    As you see is very easy to get your iphone for a very low cost, only that you have to work a little to complete the 32 credits.
    Regards and good luck
