Samsung’s Smashing New Smartphones

MobileJaw-SamsungNewLineUp

Samsung has officially announced four new Windows Mobile devices. There was no mention of price or availability of the 3 Windows Mobile Professional and 1 Standard devices. However, it is expected that they will be available in the next couple months. The Professional devices all build off the incredibly successful Omnia product line. The first device is the Omnia II which will feature a large 3.1 inch AMOLED display with 480×800 resolution, 800 MHz processor, TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, and Samsung’s Dolfin internet browser that supports viewing of up to 5 web pages simultaneously. The Omnia II, also known as the Jet, will also sport a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, FM Radio, Bluetooth, WiFi, DNSe and SRS Sound Effect technology, as well as DivX and Xvid video support. The Omnia Pro will have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard allowing fast and easy text input. The 4 row keyboard will slide on the left side of the device. The Omnia Lite will scale things down a little with a 3 megapixel camera and aGPS.

The final phone, and the only Windows Mobile Standard based device announced, is built from the extremely popular BlackJack I/II line of devices. The new Omnia Pro B7320 phone is very much the same as the Samsung Jack that has been released on AT&T’s network. The only noticeable difference in features is that the B7320 model will add an FM Radio.

The Omnia II and Omnia Pro devices appear to be very nice units. I’m not so sure about the Lite at this time, we’ll have to wait and see how that one turns out. And the B7320 (Jack) device is a solid follow-up to the BlackJack II. Samsung is sure moving hard and fast in the mobile space. It will be interesting to see what HTC announces later this month at their big event.

    Question; is the Lite actually running Windows Mobile? I saw a video and it almost looked like it was Samsung’s own UI.

    Boy, the Omnia II certainly looks big, doesn’t it! I’m kinda leaning toward the B7610.

    Samsung has this user interface that they have added ontop of the device – much like HTC with TouchFlo. Samsung’s interface is called TouchWiz, I think? Anyway, the Lite device is running Windows Mobile.

    As fir the size comments, I grabbed these images from http://omnia.samsung.com – It’s very possible that the sizing on that site is not consistent across the devices displayed. I wouldn’t expect the Omnia II to be that much bigger than the Omnia Pro.
