The Snazzy Samsung OmniaHD Morphs into Plain Jane Samsung i8910

The Samsung OmniaHD is losing its name and will now be known as its old, boring model number. It's just like when Mother is mad and calls you by your real name instead of "sweetpea."

Actually, Samsung says the reason for the name change is for practical purposes:

To avoid confusion between the original Omnia, which is Windows Mobile, and OmniaHD, which is Symbian, Samsung is deferring to the model number.

That means any Omnia phones you'll see in the future will be probably WinMo. Well, OmniOUS would be a good name for the Omnia brand if they don't start rolling out some WinMo 6.5 devices soon. [MobileCrunch]
