Samsung i8000 Omnia II has been officially announced in Russia and Australia, and the interesting fact here is that it won’t be called Omnia II in these two countries.
In Russia, the i8000 Omnia II is named Samsung WiTu AMOLED (the first Omnia was called simply WiTu, and since the Omnia II has an AMOLED touchscreen display, it’s obvious why the new name).
In Australia, the i8000 Omnia II is marketed as Samsung OmniaIcon, and it looks like it’s available only via Optus for the time being.
Regardless of its name, the Samsung Omnia II is a really nice Windows Mobile handset, coming with a 3.7 WVGA screen, HSPA, 800MHz CPU, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP camera and up to 16GB of internal memory.
