Most of us assumed that Samsung might launch an Omnia HD twin with powerful specs to run WP7S. However, Samsung has come out to clear the air by saying that this phone is not an Omnia HD lookalike but Omnia HD itself. Microsoft created it for the demo.
“The launch was from Microsoft, not Samsung, and they used the i8910HD to demo Windows 7. It’s not yet clear whether existing i8910HD users will be able to upgrade to Windows 7 as this demo was a one-off,” said a Samsung spokeperson.
The spokesperson seem skeptical about Omnia HD’s Windows affiliation and it does look that the chances of an Omnia HD-like device running WP7S look slim. I feel it’s a good thing since sticking another OS with the same phone design looks a bit lazy on Samsung’s part.
