Samsung Omnia II

Shown at CTIA Fall last month (check out our video here), we knew the Samsung Omnia II was coming to Verizon at some point, but dates were a bit of a mystery.  According to leaked documents obtained by Engadget Mobile, the device will launch in all channels on December 2nd with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional (thank heavens, since Windows Mobile 6.1 was installed at the convention).  Besides that, it will sport the features that were expected: 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 8GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, and a 5.0-megapixel camera.

Expect to see the Omnia II for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and new two-year agreement, just like the Motorola Droid.  With the Droid, Tour, Storm2, Droid Eris, and Omnia II in Verizon's holiday smartphone lineup, can the argument about their "boring" smartphone lineup be justified anymore?
