We already know who the Samsung SGH-i900 and SGH-i900V are (both are also known as the Samsung Omnia) but so far we haven't received any confirmation what the SGH-i908 is about. Nevertheless, all three mobile phones (the two i900's are confirmed Windows Mobile Professional smartphones) just received the GCF (Global Certification Forum) approval which means they are network and GSM/3GPP standard compliant which again leads us to the speculation that the SGH-i908 is indeed the North American version of the Samsung Omnia. According to the GCF, all three handsets support quadband GSM, UTRA FDDI (UMTS at 2100 MHz), MMS and CS (Circuit Switched) 3GPP/VT (Video Telephony). However, there is no indication which UMTS bands are supported:


Nevertheless, according to Samsung's past naming schema of it's Windows Mobile smartphones, it's somewhat confirmed expectable that the i908 is indeed Samsung's North American Omnia version which is most hopefully released by AT&T later this year.

UPDATE: Sorry but I made a mistake in the initial article! FDDI (which the i908 features) stands for UMTS support at 2100 MHz while FDDII stands for UMTS at 1900 MHz and FDDV stands for UMTS support at 850 MHz. Therefore it cannot be expected that the SGH-i908 is the North American version of the Omnia, even if the naming still indicates it.
