HSPA Samsung Omnia II due at Bell

Bell on Friday said it will soon add the Samsung Omnia II to its lineup in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The announcement is significant as the first HSPA version of the handset for North America and for its use of Bell's upcoming HSPA network, scheduled for a November 5th launch. Reflecting Samsung's sponsorship of the event, Bell Omnia II owners will have access to a free Olympics app to keep track of events and a decal for the phone back.

The Bell Omnia II will use Windows Mobile 6.5 with the TouchWiz interface layered on top and should carry Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 2.0 support. It should use Opera Mobile 9.5 rather than Internet Explorer for browsing. A 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen acts as the interface, andusers get a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flash. The phone holds 16GB internally but can jump to 48GB with a 32GB microSDHC card.

Despite the announcement, Bell has not revealed pricing or a more exact release date for the Omnia II.
