It's been a bit of a unicorn since making a quick appearance at MIX, but we just got the chance to go hands-on with Samsung's Omnia i8910-based Windows Phone 7 prototype phone.

Kinetic scrolling, ladies and gentlemen: are you ready for it? We sure hope so -- if you happen to be using Samsung's rather uncommon i8910 HD, that is -- because that sweet update promised back in December appears to have finally hit the ground running.

The Samsung i8910 HD (or Omnia HD, depending on your region and personal preference) has one of the most dazzling AMOLED displays ever offered on a mobile device -- but the phone's understated, muted gray case belies the visual delight that waits just a button press away.

Well, for one Mr. Panashe Ngwerume, the answer's a little more complicated than that. You see, this particular gentleman was so incensed by the Samsung i8910 HD's problems ...

Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of mobile for Monday, September 7, 2009: Samsung's got a version of the Jet for its domestic Korean market, the clumsily-named "Haptic AMOLED."

Say what you will about S60 5th Edition, but here's the thing -- of the smartphones in the news today, only one has a massive AMOLED display. Samsung's i8910 HD is almost irrefutably the baddest-ass S60 device ever produced and one of the most heavily-spec'd smartphones ever made for any platform, ...

Whether you call it OmniaHD, i8910 HD, or even "Timmy Tim" (hey, it could happen), Samsung's AMOLED--infused smartphone is a winner, if the fine lads at Phone Arena are to be believed.

If those brand ambassadors are going to get their devices any time soon -- and they happened to be located stateside -- they'll be needing a little something we like to call an "FCC approval." Good news is that milestone has now been met, but the bad news is that the OmniaHD's only been passed with...

The same slide from the very same Dutch dealer event that outed Samsung's supposed Android device had a gaggle of other goodies on it, too, though we don't know a lot about 'em -- but what we do know is that everything you see here is touch-enabled, two of the devices augment the touch with QWERTY ...
