On Thursday, Samsung introduced the newest addition to its Omnia smartphone series: the Samsung Omnia Pro B7330. In addition, the company revealed that all of its Omnia models will run Windows Mobile 6.5 and it will release upgrades to current products on the market now.

The Omnia Pro B7330 is expected to ship in October and is designed for the mobile professional. It features a slate design with a full QWERTY keyboard and 2.62-inch QVGA nontouch display. The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) smartphone includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and assisted GPS. In addition, it has a 3-megapixel camera, 270MB of internal memory, and a microSD expansion slot.

Other models in the Omnia series include the Omnia Pro B7610, the Omnia Pro B7320, the Omnia Lite 7300, and the Samsung Omnia II. The latter is expected to be released for Verizon Wireless later this year, but a specific date has yet to be announced. Microsoft announced in early September that the first batch of smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.5 would start shipping October 6.
