The Samsung Omnia i900, which is being hailed as one of the top iPhone clones to date, was unveiled today. Not only does the all-touch smartphone look much like Apple's mobile, but the Omnia i900's features are alarmingly similar, including GPS radio, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and face detection and an MP4 player. The 8GB and 16GB Omnia i900 phones will be powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 and Samsung's TouchWiz interface.
The Samsung Omnia i900 will be available in Asia this month, and will make its European debut in July. A North American version will hit the market later this year.
