Samsung Omnia II to pressure iPhone at AT&T?

Samsung Omnia II at FCC

Samsung's flagship Omnia II smartphone may be the first to directly compete against the iPhone in the US if an FCC filing (PDF) is an indication. Previously thought only to be headed to Verizon, the Windows Mobile phone has appeared in the US agency's testing with both GSM support and HSPA-based 3G on the 850MHz and 1,900MHz bands used by AT&T. No labels or other branding have necessarily confirmed a carrier deal so far.

The phone would be one of the first technically competitive touchscreen smartphones to arrive on AT&T since the iPhone 3GS. Its centerpiece is a 3.7-inch, 800x480 AMOLED screen that's both sharper and more color-rich than the 480x320 LCD on Apple's device. A 5-megapixel camera, the combination of both built-in storage and microSDHC and support for DivX video are all considered technical advantages. [via CellPhoneSignal]

    yah and it's running windows mobile? Why do people not realize that windows mobile is not a valid competitor to the iPhone! It wasn't to the BlackBerry and it's not to the iPhone. I work for Rogers, we have the HTC touch diamond, the Samsung Jack, and the BlackBerry Bold. Guess which we sell? The iPhone, and the Bold, the Jack has a keyboard like the Bold, doesn't mean we sell any, the Diamond has a touch screen like the iPhone, doesn't mean we sell any. Windows mobile is not something sales people want to sell because supporting it when your customer comes back with questions is a pain!
