Hot on the heels of this week's Samsung Omnia II announcement, we've just received a couple of exclusive screenshots of Samsung's brand new Omnia II "TouchWiz 2.0" user interface which Samsung just introduced with the new Samsung Jet and Omnia-family of touchscreen smartphones. Since the Samsung Jet and Omnia family run on different operating systems (the Samsung Jet runs on Samsung's propriety OS while the Omnia's run on Windows Mobile), the UIs are not 100 % the same but nevertheless, both platforms feature a 3D Cube as the main starting point with an underlying custom GUI and menu structure.



In terms of the Samsung Omnia II, the GUI is designed to replace the original Microsoft Windows Mobile UI as good as possible, quite similar to HTC's TouchFLO 3D, and providing quick access to the device's main features. This includes the lock screen with a customizable background as well as information about missed events but also a new task switcher with application thumbnails (similar to Windows 7). Furthermore, and this is quite similar to HTC's TouchFLO 3D, the Cube screen includes shortcuts to the most important applications.

Cheers ~ Arne

Nice look! Will Samsung use it on the I7500 too? IMHO it's better than Android!

No, the Samsung Galaxy won't feature TouchWiz (2.0) but it will be a pure Android Cupcake smartphone!
