Samsung Omnia II Has Biggest Ever Phone AMOLED Display, Coming to Verizon

Samsung's dropping a whole lotta Omnia, if you haven't noticed. Verizon's getting the Omnia II (Sammy's leaving when and for how much for Verizon to announce), which has the biggest AMOLED display yet in in a phone—3.7 inches at WVGA resolution. It's going to have TouchWiz 2.0 as well, meaning it's got more widget power, with what Samsung calls "smart unlock," so you can directly access apps from the lock screen.

Oh, and it'll be updateable to Windows Mobile 6.5 from the WM 6.1 it ships with.
