Users can also access and download content speedily while on the move thanks to the Omnia II’s HSUPA 5.76Mbps, HSDPA 7.2Mbps and Wi-Fi capabilities. Generous memory up to 48GB lets users store more of their favourite content for on-the-go access.

Omnia II OS, which is WindowsMobile 6.1, will be updateable to Windows Mobile® 6.5 upon the new OS update release. With Omnia II users can view and edit documents on the go using Microsoft Office – Word, Excel, PowerPoint (view only) and Outlook.

“The Omnia II is more capable than ever. Filled with enhancements including a faster, smoother, internet browser and Wi-Fi connectivity, 5MP digital camera and DVD-quality recording capability, an advanced GPS navigation system and more, you’ll never want Omnia II far away from your reach,” added Saihgal.
