Samsung Houdini Magically Re-Appearing?


Way back in May the Samsung Houdini was first rumored as an Android Phone headed to T-Mobile by way of leaked roadmap. A couple days later the Samsung Houdini got slapped with a November launch date and was named the “BIG HOLIDAY LAUNCH” phone for T-Mobile… but little has been heard about the device since. So what do you make of this video that opens with the text “Houdini” but titled by the uplaoder as an Samsung Omnia Pro and highlighted in the video as having Windows Mobile 6.1:

Initially the Samsung Houdini was thought to be the American name for the Samsung Galaxy. Who knows what the heck is going on… but I thought it fair to point out the OTHER information in that initial roadmap was correct and it refers to the Samsung Houdini and Bigfoot launching in the next several months. This video, which LOOKS like it was produced by Samsung themselves, further muddies the rumor waters.

You know as well as we do so tell us what you think… what the heck is going on?

  8. Mhh… nice piece of Hardware… hopefully its gettin’ released with android too!!!

  9. one day you guys will learn 5mpx isn’t necessarily better than a 2mpx sensor camera. But well, keep counting pixels, and you’ll end up seenig that HTC camera shooting usually errrm.. ****cks, no matter how high the pixel count is.

    Both my older HTC Touch Pro, and my now HTC Hero have real horrible image output, compared to many other cheaper phones.
