Samsung Omnia officially launched by Verizon – yours for $250 starting tomorrow

Everyone knew the Samsung Omnia was coming to Verizon, and now it’s finally official: the giant US CDMA carrier has announced that the high-end Windows Mobile 6.1 handset will be available for purchase starting tomorrow, online and in its business sales channels.  

Starting December 8, Samsung Omnia will make its appearance in all of Verizon’s retail stores too. 

The Omnia will be priced at $249.99, after a $70 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract agreement. I guess this is s good price – it’s definitely better than the one of Verizon’s HTC Touch Pro, which is offered for 100 bucks more, with the same 2-yr contract conditions.


We’ve covered the specs and features of Samung Omnia several times until now, but just in case you don’t know them, they include:

  • A 3.2 inch TFT display with 240 x 400 pixels and haptic feedback
  • TouchWiz UI
  • On-screen QWERTY keyboard
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Divx and Xvid support
  • 5MP camera with autofocus and LED flash
  • 8GB of internal memory + MicroSD card support
  • Talk time: up to 5.7 hours
  • Standby time: up to 19 days
  • 4.41 x 2.24 x 0.52 inches
  • 4.34 ounces

Samsung Omnia is undoubtedly one of the nicest Windows Mobile handsets to set foot on North American shores, so if you’re on Verizon, checking it out is a must.
