Mobile World Congress: Samsung Roundup

Okay, so Samsung announced two phones at Mobile World Congress: The "Memoir " OmniaHD on the left, and the M7600 Beat DJ on the right. 
Here's all we know so far:
The OmniaHD has a 8 megapixel camera (with Xenon flash, CMOS auto focus, 16x digital zoom, blink detection, face detection, anti-shake and geotagging inclusions) and a a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, while it can record a whopping 720p HD video, which makes it the first ever phone to do so. It has 3G, a full touchscreen, TV out function, TouchWiz user interface, integrated AGPS, full HTML browser. It's coming to T-Mobile on February 25th (in the US) for a price of $249.99, with a $50 mail in rebate.

As for the Beat DJ phone, this Quadband GSM / HSDPA music phone sports a 2.8-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, GPS, 3 megapixel camera, and Bang & Olufsen amplifier. It's also got codec support for DivX and XviD, microSDHC card slot for up to 16GB, Bluetooth A2DP, FM radio, and a very welcome 3.5mm headphone jack. As for those DJ features, the turntable-inspired "Disc UI" uses a spin wheel for navigation, and the included software lets you both create your own music and sounds as well as remix other songs by adding effects and filters. Unfortunately, mum's the word on pricing or availability.
