Re: for all those who said that Omnia users will NOT get the Win Mo 6.5 upgrade....

That article simply refers to a post in another forum with a link to a Dutch Samsung website. Part of the discussion is around the fact that they might be talking about the Omnia II vs. they might be talking about the original Omnia....

Hardly confirmation that US Verizon customers will get it.

...Besides, after Verizon got their hands on it and rapes it, you would be better off with one of the current good cooked ROMS. I'm perfectly happy with my current cooked 6.5 ROM and really could care less about an 'official' version.

Just my 2 cents...

You mean the information that has already been discredited?

Re: for all those who said that Omnia users will NOT get the Win Mo 6.5 upgrade....

I'd love to be wrong, but we don't know for sure if it's true, and even if the update is real, it might be for the GSM i900. Honestly, after installing the first custom ROM on my phone two or three weeks after I got it, I see no reason to use the carrier/manufacturer's software when the chefs do a much better job for users like us. Even if it were true, it might be the 6.5 we saw months ago that didn't have many of the new finger friendly tweaks of the latest builds.

Samsung re-affirms Windows Mobile 6.5 commitment for current generation handsets

September 17th, 2009 | Author: admin
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a leading mobile phone provider, today announced plans to release a series of new Omnia smartphones offering a range of multimedia and work features.
With the new Omnia Series devices, Samsung seeks to reinforce its leadership in the smartphone market and build on the success of the Omnia I (I900), which sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide last year.
The Omnia Series will feature five devices: the OmniaPRO B7610, OmniaPRO B7320, OmniaPRO B7330, OmniaLITE (B7300), as well as the already announced Omnia II (I8000) with an updated Windows Mobile® 6.5 operating system. Samsung will release the series later this year and announce a set of customized strategies to differentiate and expand sales of each model by appealing to a broad spectrum of user groups.
Within the OmniaPRO lineup, the OmniaPRO B7610 is the premium device, featuring a high-resolution 3.5 inch AMOLED display and QWERTY keyboard. The OmniaPRO B7320 and OmniaPRO B7330 will target businessmen with a QWERTY keyboard and email/wireless internet capabilities. The OmniaPRO B7330 will feature HSDPA 7.2 Mps, HSUPA 2.0 Mps and Windows Mobile® 6.5, providing the most versatile option for emailing and wireless internet use. Rounding out the new series, the OmniaLITE will have a user-friendly interface and various multimedia functions for younger users.
“The Omnia Series is one of Samsung’s most important lineups yet and definitively shows our leadership in the smartphones marketplace,” said JK Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ Mobile Communications Division. “Samsung’s smartphone strategy is to provide both powerful multimedia features, with brighter and faster AMOLED displays, and offer efficiency and convenience at work supported by an advanced open operating system.”




this wasnt the article that confirmed it, im still lookin for it but in this 1 notice how there is no mention of the I910
