Three new Verizon handsets leaked: Samsung Omnia and Saga, HTC Touch Pro

Finally, a little more holiday love from the jolly red giant. Sure the BlackBerry Storm will be out before Santa rolls around this year but it’s always nice to have options – especially since the Storm’s touchy clicky screen will surely not appeal to everyone. Worry not, it looks like the boys in red have a few treats for you. First up, the Samsung Omnia. Pictured above sporting a Verizon Wireless boot screen, the Omnia is one of Samsung’s answers to the, dare we say, iPhone. Optical mouse, nice big touchscreen, Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, 8 GB of internal memory… You know the drill. Next up, the HTC Touch Pro. There’s no way that Verizon would let Sprint have all the QWERTY HTC fun. Interesting to note that the image (after the jump) shows the Touch Pro with a standard Windows Mobile today screen – what a massive fail that would be! Expect pricing right around $300 to fall in line with Sprint’s offering. Last, and least, is the Samsung i770 Saga. We found out that the i770 was coming to Verizon earlier this month and it will replace the aging i760. The d-pad / mouse mode setup is kind of cool but we doubt we’d opt for it over the Touch Pro or Omnia. There you have it people – hit the jump for a pic of Verizon’s Touch Pro and Saga.
