OmniaHD (i8910) finally cleared for landing in U.S.

Published: April 8, 2009

All you touchscreen Sammy fans in the U.S. may not have to wait much longer. According to ElectronicPulp, the i8910 (née the OmniaHD), along with the S8300 Ultra Touch and two other Samsung phones (the B5210 and B189), just passed the FCC.

That means the runways are finally all clear for these beauties to land on American soil.

When you head out to buy yours, remember that the OmniaHD name has changed, says MobileCrunch. It's now going solely by the infinitely duller model number of i8910 as its only name. Samsung dropped the OmniaHD label to keep people from confusing the new Symbian phone with the original Omnia, which runs on WinMo.

Who cares what they call it, as long as it finally gets here. No confirmation on an actual drop date yet, but by all accounts, it should be soon. With all the hyped features ? like AMOLED screen, 8 MP camera, robust speakers, and 720p video recording ? I can't wait to see it up close and personal.
