Samsung Omnia Pro gets fondled, Omnia 2 gets less appealing

While Samsung fans on this side of the world ogle the Omnia 2, our Asian brothers and sisters across the globe are already eying bigger and better things. Ahhh, the Omnia Pro B7610. GSMArena managed to get its mitts on a Pro and the site most definitely took it for a spin. The form is solid, the AMOLED display is nuts and the TouchWiz UI continues to get sexier and sexier — though you’re still left high and dry in areas beyond TouchWiz’s reach. Since it’s all about the extensive six-page ride, we’ll go ahead and spoil the ending for you: The reviewer says the phone rocks but won’t sell as well as the HTC Touch Pro2. Hmm. Ok, specs time:
