Samsung today announced, that the current range of Omnia Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphones will be relaunched as Windows phones, as soon as Windows Mobile 6.5 is officially introduced into the market. That will empower users more than ever to stay connected and productive while on the go with unprecedented ease of use. However, Samsung also said that it plans to offer free Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades on the already released and available Omnia II, OmniaPRO B7610, and OmniaPRO B7320, which were initially shipped with Windows Mobile 6.1.

Interesting enough, neither the original Samsung Omnia nor this summer's announced OmniaLITE are mentioned and it looks like owners of these devices are out of luck and the latest official Samsung Windows Mobile built was Windows Mobile 6.1.
The Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades will be either offered by mobile operators or local Samsung offices. A release date wasn't given today.

Cheers ~ Arne
