Samsung Omnia i900 Reviewed by MobileTechReview

Posted by Paul Martin in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 11:00 AM

http://www.mobiletechreview.com/pho...-Omnia-i900.htm

"The Omnia (Latin for "all") in fact has it all: a WQVGA haptic touch screen, quad band unlocked GSM, Euro-only 3G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, FM radio, DivX certification, a 5 megapixel camera, 624MHz CPU, 8 or 16 gigs of storage and an SDHC microSD card slot. For those of us in the US, the Euro-only 3G takes "all" down one notch. The Omnia works fine on both T-Mobile and AT&T in the US, but you're stuck with EDGE for data. Really, it's hard to imagine that Samsung's flagship PDA phone leaves out triband HSDPA. No carrier offers the Omnia in the US; instead it's sold by online importers for approximately $700 (the 16 gig model sells for approximately $60 more than the 8 gig model). Prices may come down when the phone isn't so new and hot."

Beyond the nice video review, MobileTechReview has done an indepth writeup of the Samsung Omnia i900. With very few actual hardware controls, the i900 relies heavily on the touch-based interface. As noted in the quote above, the Omnia sadly left behind any 3G goodness once it crossed the pond so North American users will encounter more online speed limit signs. Read on to see what Editor-in-Chief Lisa Gade thought, despite the loss of 3G.

Our pal, Arne, over at the::unwired, has reviewed the Omnia from top to bottom. Overall, it's a great device, but there are a few shortcomings, as Arne points out. Any of you already proud owners of this device? If so, let us know what you think of it.

Samsung Omnia and HTC Touch Diamond In the Ring

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 11:00 AM

"It's PocketPC playoffs and HTC are giving Samsung a match at the GSM Arena. With two of the stars of the season arriving in our office all at once, we thought it's a heck of an opportunity for some Diamond-Omnia-Diamond-Omnia-Diamond-Omnia game-set-match with a pinch of iPhone flavor. We got two aces up to the challenge, so sit back and stretch out. Ah well, get that six-pack too and join us for the kick-off."

There's plenty to love about the Samsung Omnia and the HTC Touch Diamond. Both are very capable, but which one trumps the other? GSM Arena attempts to answer that in nine pages. Take a look!

PPCSG Test Drives the Omnia

Fancy Samsung's latest entry into the Windows Mobile market? If you do, PPCSG has just posted a video review of the software, so be sure to check it out. It doesn't have quite the same "wow" factor as HTC's TouchFLO 3D, but it still goes a long way toward making Windows Mobile more touch-friendly.

Samsung Omnia (SGH-i900) Announced

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 09:00 PM

One of Samsung's worst kept secrets is now official. The Omnia, which many of you previously knew as the i900, runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and packs quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity, a 3.2" WQVGA (240 x 400) touch screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, an FM radio, TV-out, 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, a microSD slot, and a stunning 5.0-megapixel auto-focus camera with support for geotagging, panorama shots, and face and smile detection (whatever that is).

The company certainly picked one heck of a day to announce it. Why? WWDC is half a day away and the world is expecting Apple to unveil the 3G iPhone. So, just who will upstage who? You decide... in 13 hours time.

Samsung's Feature-Packed SGH-i900 Makes An Appearance

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 09:55 PM

Samsung's SGH-i900 (also, Anycall's SGH-i908) is turning into quite a beast. It's said to be packing a 3.5" 240 x 400 touch screen, HSDPA support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, an FM radio, TV-out, 16GB of storage, a microSDHC slot (yes, HTC - this is how it's supposed to be done), a 5.0-megapixel auto-focus camera, and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Still no official word on when this impressive device will drop into the hands of consumers, although rumour is it'll make a showing late Q3 or early Q4.
