Bell announced today that it would be the exclusive provider for the Samsung Omnia II smartphone in Canada.

Bell becomes the first vendor in North America to offer an HSPA version of the touchscreen device for use on Bell Mobility's new HSPA network, scheduled for launch next week.



The Omnia 2 features a 3.7" WVGA AMOLED touchscreen display with accelerometer, Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system with the TouchWiz interface, Bluetooth v2.0 support, WiFi connectivity, Opera Mobile 9.5 Browser, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flash and 16GB of internal memory expandable to 48 GB with a 32GB microSDHC card.



Bell did not announce when the device, which it says is the "Official Mobile Device of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games" would be made available to consumers nor what they could expect to pay.
