I still don't know why the Omnia II's 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen is resistive, but the WinMo 6.5 phone will go head-to-head with Verizon's own Moto Droid. Leaked docs suggest it'll be $200 on contract after $100 mail-in rebate.
As we noted when we first saw the ai.rs video below, the TouchWiz 2.0 UI looks nice, but the resistive touch lag is a shame given the 800Mhz processor. Still, there you have it. Engadget's tipster says the phone will hit telesales, online and retail stores on December 2. [Samsung via Engadget]
