Samsung Omnia arrives in Verizon’s stores

Samsung Omnia was spotted with Verizon’s logo on it about one month ago, but it’s still not officially released by the second largest US mobile carrier.

However, BGR has come up with some live shots of the Windows Mobile 6.1 handset, straight from a Verizon retail store, which means that it won’t be long until the big V launches it.

As far as features go, it’s most likely that the Omnia from Verizon will be similar to the GSM version of the device, which is available across Europe for some time now.

So expect a 5MP camera, a 240 x 400 pixels touchscreen display, accelerometer, GPS, Wi-Fi and other nice stuff. Or perhaps Verizon will surprise everyone and bring an Omia similar to the one released in Japan (with a 800 x 480 pixels display), but this would be too good to be true.

 

There’s still no word on how much Verizon’s Samsung Omnia will cost, but it’s said that its final price will be calculated after a $70 rebate, which, in the end, only makes the WinMo handset a bit more affordable.
