The original Omnia is known for its sharp display and its 2nd in coming will not disappointed given that its enlarged and its AMOLED screen is capable of displaying 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA resolution), in short, BETTER display. But what is even better, Omnia now has a 3.5mm audio jack. Another key point to note, although it runs on windows 6.1 professional, you will not see the usual boring menu on windows mobile. Instead, Samsung has outlay its own interface, TouchWiz.

Sometimes, you don’t fixed it when it ain’t broken. Samsung Omnia II is a great example. Way to go!
