Samsung Omnia variants
New versions of Samsung's i900 Omnia smartphone are incoming, FCC filings appear to document. Two new Samsung phones, the i907 and i910, have been tested and approved by the FCC, revealing some of their features. The i910 may be the most significant of the two due to CDMA support, allowing use with carriers such as Sprint and Verizon. The i907 meanwhile supports dual-band WCDMA, which may mark it as the rumored AT&T edition.
The Omnia is considered one of Samsung's chief rivals to the Apple iPhone, due to its touchscreen-based design, which also layers a custom touch interface on top of Windows Mobile 6.1. Other features include Wi-Fi, GPS and 3G broadband, combined with an FM tuner, a five-megapixel camera, and 8 or 16GB of internal memory expandable through a microSD slot.
