New Samsung Omnia 7 Firmware available: I8700XXKC1 XXKB2

A new Samsung Omnia 7 firmware has just been leaked a few minutes ago and is available for everybody to download. The I8700XXKC1 XXKB2 is said to include NoDo but not much else is known about it yet. I’ll will try to flash my Omnia 7 device with it in a few minutes a report back to you.
The only downside to this is that the phone will be hard reset so all the personal info (SMS,MMS, installed apps, pictures etc) will have to be re-installed after the rom is flashed.

Update 1: The Firmware is dated March 24th so it’s safe to assume that it probably includes the 7390 version of the OS.

Samsung Galaxy S 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to be announced on February 13th

Nothing really surprising here but according tot the event planning document posted above Samsung is set to launch not only Samsung Galaxy S 2 but also the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2  (Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy Tab II) on February 13th in Barcelona just ahead of MWC.

New Samsung Omnia 7 Firmware Rom available and Samsung I7850 Omnia 8 coming soon ?

A new Samsung Omnia 7 ROM has just emerged a few minutes ago for all you brave souls who wish start the new year by doing something risky. There’s apparently two versions of it which are dated November 2010: I8700XENJK1: CS,DE,EN,FR,HU,IT,PL,SL and I8700BSEJK1 : EN,ET,LT,LV,RU,UK (AZ,BG,DE,FR,KA,KK,MK,RO,SR). No word yet on what is new in there or even if it is safe to flash them. But if you are in the mood just head over here to grab the files and the tools need to flash your device. BTW, according to the same website (which has a pretty good track record) there’s a Samsung I7850 (Omnia 8 ) Windows Phone 7 in the making and based on the model number I’m guessing that it will sport a hardware keyboard.
