Samsung Omnia HD powered by Android?

By now most of us already know that the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD will be powered by Symbian S60 5th Edition instead of Windows Mobile, which is a departure from what the first Omnia i900 used. There were rumors going around that there would also be a Windows Mobile 6.5 version of the upcoming Omnia HD, however that rumor seems to have been quashed by certain sources. Apparently Samsung picked Symbian over Windows Mobile because of Microsoft’s delay in getting Windows Mobile 6.5 out of the door. The interesting bit is that Samsung wants to launch more handsets with its Omnia branding, and some of them will run Android, so it seems like we’ll be getting an Android-powered smartphone sooner rather than later.
