Samsung Omnia II

Translated to geek, I’m still dithering in my Upgrade Decision. Do I wait for the HTC Dragon aka Passion, which per Softpedia may not be available until first quarter 2010. and even then maybe only in Taiwan?  Or do I snap up the already available Motorola Droid?

While dithering, along comes another choice: Samsung Omnia II. I’d have to wait for it also. But not for  long. It’ll be available December 2 at your local Verizon store. See Verizon press release.

The OS is Windows Mobile 6.5, with the user interface enhanced by Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz. OK. 800MHz processor. Not bad. 3.7” screen. Good; I like large screens. AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen. That’s exciting. But the screen is resistive, not capacitive. Gizmodo says Looks Okay, But Why the Resistive Touchscreen? Why indeed? May be a show stopper for me. Though not necessarily for you.
