Samsung Omnia 2 GT-I8000: Is this going to be a good enough phone?

Samsung has proudly posted the web page heralding the arrival of their Samsung Omnia 2 GT-I8000 smartphone which is “coming soon” to Verizon Wireless and Samsung say the Omnia 2 will revolutionise the way you text and email, although they could have posted a picture of the handset rather than a blanked out image.

But will it match up to what is expected and will the handset be good enough? The original Samsung Omnia was regarded as too slow in operation; is the Omnia 2 faster in that respect? They say it handles email and texting faster and more accurately, but faster as opposed to what; the iPhone 3GS, BlackBerry, or just the Omnia?

The Samsung Omnia 2 does incorporate the faster 800 MHz processor, along with Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, and sports a 3.7 inch WCGA AMOLED display, but will this baby actually cut the mustard up against the likes of the iPhone 3GS, Nokia N97 and BlackBerry Tour?

    I’m also sick of waiting. You should have seen me on August 23rd calling all around to see if it was released as that blurb on the Internet was telling us it was going to be available on that date. I’m still waiting. It’s been put up on Amazon.com as a pre order for $699.99 for an unlocked international version!!!
