Samsung's Omar Khan

As long as we're spending our Friday night reading tea leaves and interpreting tweets, let's look at one more. The above comes from Samsung's Omar Khan, chief strategy officer and senior vice president of products and services with Samsung. He's the guy we saw on stage at the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab events. And he's "using an amazing new device to be revealed to all soon."

Is this the mythical Nexus 2/Nexus S (now believed to be delayed)? Don't think so. More likely it's the Samsung Continuum, expected to be officially unveiled Monday in New York City. (We'll be there!) Of course, it's possible he's not talking about an Android phone. But are there any "amazing new devices" out there that aren't rocking our beloved operating system? [Twitter]

From what I've seen/heard of it...there's nothing amazing about the continuum

Smokexz says:

He said a new device, the Continuum maybe not be confirmed yet, but it isn't new... I am still hoping this is a Nexus 2 >.>

i HOPE TO GOD that maybe he is talking about one of the new Galaxy s based media players. PLEEEAAASSEEEE. We really need a solid device to compete with the ipod market since every other company in the world dropped the ball on that one a LONG time ago.

frozencloud says:

didnt there announce that already? the galaxy player.

XXXdc5 says:

not REALLY. There have been smaller ones and lower end ones but only eluded to the big dog of the group so far and gave little glimpses. check out samsunghub.

Capt. Vate says:

10" Galaxy Tab? That would be more amazing than the Continuum. Of course, he's paid to call their products amazing...

icebike says:

10 inch with wifi please?

That's what's she said

Jonneh says:

Am I the only one hoping what he meant to say was, "Don't worry guys, when we release our next generation Galaxy phones, the GPS will actually be top-notch and comparable to our competitors'! "...?

I mean, they released an update to their software for it back in September, but that didn't fix it for over half of the users. Now, froyo is assumed to have fixed it, but we've yet to see that...the phones have been released for months and months now and those poor owners are stuck with a high-end phone with sub-par GPS (some barely functioning, though that's rarer now).

It's such a shame. I would love a Galaxy S phone, either the international ver. or the captivate, but both are plagued with this problem. And Samsung still hasn't fixed it.

Phill, first off great post. Second, you have a typo:

Is the the mythical Nexus 2/Nexus S (now believed to be delayed)?

Hmm I wonder where the typo is.. lol. :P

A Galaxy S personal media player?? I'd gladly give Samsung my money instead of funding Nazi Cupertino.

XXXdc5 says:

what he said!!

Your papers are not in order.

Since there's a handful of Win7 phones coming out next week, I'm pretty sure that's what Samsung is going on about. The N2 rumors doesn't make a whole lot of sense over what Samsung and Google has said.

How about we worry about 2.2 on your phones first Omar.

bucgator says:

I think it's the Samsung Focus.(Win7) Saw a lot of commercials for it during football today.

DaRkL3AD3R says:

Calling it right now:

Samsung Fascinate 2

2Ghz processor, possibly also LTE but doubt it.

bucgator says:

No reason to assume that it is android. Samsung is now also making Win7 phones.

bucgator says:

Also the Samsung Fascinate was just released. No way in hell that they already have a Samsung Fascinate 2 already made and are about to announce it. Come on really?
