Samsung "Announces" Omnia Cellphone on the Worst Day Ever

Illustration for article titled Samsung Announces Omnia Cellphone on the Worst Day Ever

It's not that the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional-based 3G Samsung Omnia is not a good phone. In fact, we already knew that it looks very good. It's just that today, dear Samsung people, today is just not the right day to announce any cellphone, even if you think that telling us official details of an already-leaked model—like the face and smile detection on its 5 megapixel camera, or the DivX, XviD, H.264, WMV and MP4 video support, or the nice-looking GPS—is going to make any difference. But still, we like the new pictures of the interface and the full feature list.

Seriously, Samsung.. You can't release this on the same day that Microsoft will be releasing their Blu-ray Xbox 360? What are you thinking?!

The feature list of this phone looks pretty good, and we can assume is as-good or better than the Second Coming. They were not going to get any major press anyway, so why not release it today?
