There was a bit of confusion surrounding one of our scoops from earlier this month regarding a screenshot of a Best Buy inventory sheet. For those who were unclear, yes, the dates listed there are in-stock dates and not launch dates. From what we can gather so far, most (but not all) of the shipments were indeed received, but that is not confirmed. In any event, the most anticipated handset on that list was likely the Samsung Omnia II, and those who are still skeptical will be happy to learn Samsung has indeed confirmed that the handset is coming soon to Verizon. A new dedicated page on the Samsung Mobile USA site was just spied by an eagle-eyed reader and it also confirms that the Omnia II will be a Verizon exclusive, at least initially. There’s a link for those interested to sign up for an email once the handset is announced, but you can be sure you’ll read about it here long before any such email is delivered. Excited, WinMo fans?

Thanks, Pandabarr!
