Well, I hope it (or some variant of it) will work on the iPod Touch 2G. And they better get Apple Lossless support working correctly w/out the nasty (frequent) audio dropouts.

And as a Verizon customer, I hope they get in the game soon with something more than the Blackberry line.
Verizon does also have a pair of Samsung offerings, etc. The Omnia looked promising (including what seems to be a fairly decent camera -- as good as on-phone cameras get anyway), but apparently, the MS Windoze mobile software is probably still a bit too much of a resource hog to run perfectly well on it.
I almost bought the Omnia for the wife to use -- and just might've by now -- but that niggling Windoze issue combined w/ Verizon's new policy of forcing a hefty $30/month web+email plan on all smartphones (except maybe a couple barely-smart phones) *plus* adding a per-MB usage charge on top really bites the big one. And so far, I'm refusing to upgrade our dying old phones and renew any contract because of that.
FWIW, the Omnia comes w/ WiFi support, so one could use it for occasional/sparing access to the net (like one would w/ the iPod Touch). That was a big part of the appeal for my wife since she really doesn't need frequent access to email and web -- and WiFi would be just fine for her most times. But Verizon's new policy basically kills most of the appeal there.
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".
