Yeah I'm really digging the Omnia HD. So far here are the specs I've read from GSMArena.

Samsung i8910 Omnia HD at a glance:

* General: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS 900/1900/2100 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
Since your tag says Cingular (AT&T), don't make the mistake of buying it. The international version (GSM/UMTS/HSPA) as spec'ed above isn't going to work with AT&T's HSPA 3G network (850 vs. 2100). So you will end up defaulting the phone at 2G GSM while paying an expensive price for an unlocked non subsidized phone.

US version Omnias are being carried by Verizon, as in EV-DO. These are Windows Mobile, which doesn't support 16.7million colors as Symbian does. Hopefully, some US carrier will pick up the Omnia HD.

I suspect the rumored Samsung Android phone might also be Omnia based, as it seems Samsung is using this platform to stage different OSes.

To be honest the Omnia HD's specs aren't that much different from the Nokia 5800 which is already available in North America frequencies and unlocked. Maybe a camera with more megapixels and a slightly bigger screen with OLED but that's about it.
