Telus launches Samsung OMNIA


Telus announced it's sitting down with the Samsung OMNIA fanclub today. You should all be well versed in all things OMNIA by now, but if not, here's a quick rundown. This slate features a 3.2-inch touchscreen to let Windows Mobile 6.1 with TouchWiz shine, 8GB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi, and the cute little touch sensitive d-pad. Pricing is $499 off contract, $449 (roughly $400) on one year, $349 ($280) on two years, and $129 (about $100) on a three year stint. While we do love this handset, the fact we know Verizon's got it for only 99 bills makes that pricing a little hard to chew. Of course, if you're getting an itch for a new set -- and don't live in the US -- Samsung's OMNIA is available on Telus' site right now.
