When Korean telecoms giant SK Telecom calls saying they want your handset, what do you do? If you’re Samsung, you take said handset and give it the upgrade treatment. Such is the case with the T*Omnia, a bigger, better version of the Omnia headed for Korea sometime in the coming weeks.
The most obvious change is in its display – they’ve taken the 400×240 screen and replaced it with the 800×480 (WVGA) Samsung-made screen we’ve seen hit a few other handsets as of late. A bit less obvious, albeit still a nice touch, is the addition of a DMB TV tuner for satellite-based channel surfing. Of course, it hasn’t lost the WiFi, GPS, 7.2 mbps HSDPA, or any of the other stuff which made the original Omnia such a nice piece.
Oh, and no – we have no idea what the “T*” bit in T*Omnia represents, either. We’re guessing T stands for something special (Tasty? Tubular? Ooh! Ooh! Tyrannosaurus!), and they just put the * there to keep it from being the “Tomnia”.
