Samsung's Omnia: could arrive here next month

Samsung has already confirmed that the 3.5G phone will ship to South-East Asia during Q3, but it has never said exactly when European customers will be able to get their hands on the handset.

However, according to a report on Digitimes, the phone will be launched in Europe at the end of July. Other markets, which are likely to include the US, will see the phone arrive one month later, in August.

HSDPA 3.5G connections are possible and the camera's 5Mp

The phone, which has the model number SGH-i900, boasts HSDPA 3.5G connections of up to a 7.2Mb/s and Wi-Fi support. Omnia is based on Windows Mobile 6.1. Images snapped on the phone’s five-megapixel camera can be viewed back on the 3.2in LCD touchscreen display.

If that doesn’t stimulate your appetite, then how about a haptic keyboard, an FM radio and up to 16GB of on-board storage, which can be further bolstered with a Micro SDHC card?
