Mobile phone manufacturers are usually not the most generous when it comes to providing OS updates for older smartphones. That fact didn’t stop a curious Samsung Omnia i900 owner in the Netherlands from contacting his local Samsung branch about the upcoming release of WinMo 6.5.
Lo and behold, a representative from Samsung Netherlands replied with surprisingly good news:
In your email you ask the question if windows mobile 6.5 will be released for the Omnia. We can confirm that this is coming, however the exact release date isn’t known yet, we therefore advice you to keep an eye on www.samsungmobile.com.
As positive as this sounds, its definitely far from certain. Omnia i900 owners probably shouldn’t hold their collective breathes, especially outside of the NL. But you never know; hopefully Samsung takes the high road here.
