Samsung to launch the Omnia i910 on Telus and Bell

Right now I’m at a Samsung event at a Microsoft event in downtown Toronto.

It’s the Canadian launch of the Omnia i910 for Telus and Bell.

The Omnia is a Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 device with a 8GB of built in memory + up to 16GB of removable memory, Rev A, 5 megapixel autofocus camera, 240×400 display with haptic feedback, Opera web browser, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi.

What sets the Omnia apart from other WinMo decices is it’s home screen which has widgets. It’s also fairly compact at 112 x 56.9 x 12.5mm and 125g.

Launch date is ‘early April’

LG Neon-Fido

Rogers launched the LG Neon two weeks ago and now Fido has done the same.


The Neon allows you to keep in touch through SMS, MMS, and instant messaging (WLM or Y!M).  A 2.0 MP is on the back side of the touch screen, which can only be used for dialing.  Bluetooth, a built in MP3 player, and FM radio round out this QWERTY phone.

Fido pricing for the LG Neon:
$50-2 year
$175-no contract

Buy online or at any Fido retail store.

BlackBerry 99xx


Could this be the BlackBerry 99xx (Pluto), Research in Motions’s fully QWERTY keyboard with SurePress display?  CrackBerry has received a “leaked” photo of the device with a target launch date of late 2009 on Rogers Wireless.

I call fake-what do you think?
