Samsung confirms Omnia Line-up

Wow, Samsung has been busy these past couple of days. It seems that with the success of their first Samsung Omnia, they decided to make a line-up of Omnia products, all touting Windows Mobile.

Samsung Omnia Lite
Samsung Omnia II

Samsung Omnia Pro B7610

Samsung Omnia Pro B7320

First, there's the follow up follow up to the Omnia, the Samsung Omnia II or Samsung i8000 with a 3.7 inch AMOLED screen with 8 megapixel camera, second there the Samsung Louvre aka Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 which has a physical QWERTY Keyboard, 3.5 inch screen and 5.1 megapixel camera, then there's the Samsung Omnia Pro B7320, which is the follow up to the Samsung i780, sporting a 3 megapixel camera, Blackberry-like QWERTY keypad, FM radio, and WiFi. Last is the Samsung Omnia Lite which pretty much has the same feature as the orignal Omnia except maybe for the 3 megapixel camera.

My thoughts? Well, the Samsung Omnia II seems like the leader of the bunch with much improved features, the Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 is really what I've been waiting for since I'm in the market for phones with a physical QWERTY keyboard, its biggest competitior is the HTC Touch Pro2 but considering that the former has far better specifications (faster processor and higher camera resolution), I'm still inclined to the Omnia although the HTC Touch Pro2's design is waaayyy better. I wish Samsung stuck with the design of the i780 on the Samsung Omnia Pro B7320 and as for the Tocco Lite, if Samsung keeps its price down, the Nokia 5530 has a REAL competitor.

On a final note, since Samsung already knows how successful their Omnia is, I wish they would release an SDK already for their widgets. No, I'm not talking about online widgets, I'm talking about straight to program widgets like on Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 panels. For the love of God, Samsung, do it already! I'm sure you would be releasing a third Omnia in the future and would still run windows mobile. There are a lot of application developers for windows mobile and I'm sure they're more than ready to make widgets for their applications.
