Samsung prepping loads of high-end touch phones in 2009

18 March, 2009

Thirteen new Samsung touchscreen phones have been spotted at a dealer's event held by the company in Amsterdam. The two most exciting new phones include a new version of the Omnia HD running on Windows Mobile 6.5 plus their first Android phone.

At this time, there are very few details available coming mostly from a blurry shot taken at the event. It's not really clear how the new version Omnia HD upgrades the currently announced one, except for the fact that it will run on Winodws Mobile (if that can be counted as an upgrade that is).
