UPDATE Feb. 12, 2010: Jeez, looks like all that buzz for nothing. The Samsung Jet Ultra Edition is actually just the Samsung Jet S8000 and it seems that Samsung is long delayed in marketing this product because they've only started advertising it just now. They've decided that renaming the product might resurrect the buzz for it. Anyways, you can check out my Samsung Jet Ultra Review and yes, it's the same product that's been available on Vodafone for some time now.
Hmmm, looks like Samsung is gearing for another touchscreen phone. If the people at carphone warehouse is to be believed, it seems that there's a "yet to be released" Samsung Jet Ultra Edition.
Carphone Warehouse is enticing its affiliates with the Samsung Jet Ultra Incentive wherein two lucky affiliates who generate the most sales will win the "coming soon" phone.
Of course, not much is known about the Samsung Jet Ultra Edition since if you do a google search, you'll get the old Samsung Jet results results. And it seems that this Samsung Jet Ultra Edition has almost the same specs as the previous Samsung Jet: 3.1" Amoled screen, 800Mhz processor, 5 megapixel camera with DVD like video recording, HSDPA, WiFi, Integrated Social Networking and Active Sync. Now the last feature seems to suggest that the Samsung Jet Ultra Edition will be a windows mobile phone because Active Sync is only available for WinMo phones.
But the thing is, the Samsung Jet and the Samsung Omnia 2 are like brothers but with different OS so why bother releasing a Samsung Jet Ultra Edition with Windows Mobile if the Samsung Omnia 2 is already in the wild? So maybe the Samsung Jet Ultra Edition will just have a more appealing design? Then again, it may also have a capacitive touchscreen to make it WinMo 7 ready.
