Samsung Omnia Pro with QWERTY keyboard to come in July

After the Omnia i900 and Omnia HD i8910, Samsung may come up with an Omnia Pro, which should feature a full QWERTY keyboard alongside a wide touchscreen display – just like HTC’s Touch Pro and Touch Pro2.  

Reportedly, Samsung Omnia Pro will hit the market in July, for a retail price of around €500 ($662). That’s much more than the price of i7500, rumored to be the first Android phone from Samsung

Anyway, HDblog.it says that the Omnia Pro runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 (upgradeable to WM 6.5 as soon as the new OS becomes available). So no Symbian, nor Android for this Omnia.

Apart from the sliding QWERTY keyboard, Samsung Omnia Pro should also have a 3.5 inch WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen display and a 5MP camera with autofocus, flash, image stabilizer and video recording.

    That sounds like good news for us original Omnia users; if Samsung plans to release a 6.5 upgrade for this, I would think they'd do it for the i900 and i910, as well, considering how similar the hardware is.

    What i want to know is if this is a real smartphone with User Selectable Fonts. Anything less is just pretending to be smart.

    Is this phone available with Verizon in the US? The Omnia was a great phone and the qwerty keyboard just finishes the package. I'm ready for a decent touch phone with Windows Mobile.
