Today Verizon Wireless announced that the Samsung Omnia II will be available starting December 2. The Omnia II will run Windows Mobile 6.5 and the new TouchWiz 2.0 user interface. It has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touch display that supports "Swype" technology, which Samsung says allows customers to input text faster with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the software QWERTY keyboard. Other features include a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, on-board editing and video capture; Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi; and 8GB of on-board memory expandable up to 16GB with microSD cards. The Omnia II will shop with Microsoft Office Mobile; SMS, MMS, IM, email and Exchange messaging; and one-touch access to social networking applications via the TouchWiz 2.0 3D cube. The Omnia II will cost $200 after rebates with new two-year agreement.

According to, it is expected to be released on 12/2. We'll see I guess.

Omnia II and GPS

I just read, and re-read, the news release on Verizon's site and it does NOT specifically say 'GPS'. As with the initial release of the Omnia I, it has VZNavigator capability but...

Maybe, an oversight; maybe, GPS NOT open to non-Verizon apps. Has anyone seen any other Verizon official release that says GPS? Surprised
"Maybe, an oversight; maybe, GPS NOT open to non-Verizon apps."

Interesting, everything else is there but no GPS, I hope it was an oversight. I've been waiting for this phone to arrive.
I think the way it works is you have to have a certain level of service and VZNavigator is "opened"...kind of a sneaky way of doing it because you still end up paying for it by having to upgrade your service. Otherwise, you pay for the service separa...
