Is CDMA Samsung Omnia in the works?

with one comment

It appears that Samsung is preparing two derivatives of its popular Samsung Omnia i900 for the North American market. PhoneArena reported today that FCC has just approved the i910 and the i907 from Samsung. The i910 appears to be similar as the i900 with CDMA support alongwith Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This could mean that the phone is headed for Verizon Wireless. The i907 is a slightly different model but it could be a Samsung Omnia derivative headed for AT&T. Neither the operators nor Samsung have confirmed these rumors. You can read the Omnia review here and here. You can read the comparison to HTC Touch Diamond here.
