Samsung i900 Omnia

Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia was recently reviewed by the::Unwired. It is a cool phone based on Window Mobile 6.1 Professional with haptic touch. Samsung has done a fantastic job of making an operating system that is designed to work with a stylus to respond to touch. The screen is 3.2″ in size and supports 240 x 400 pixel (WQVGA). It comes with 3 customized Today screens and an accelerometer.

According to the::Unwired, the Omnia

features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but only singelband UMTS  at 2100 MHz and HSDPA (up to 7.2 Mbps) while HSUPA isn’t supported. Furthermore, the SGH-i900 features Bluetooth 2.0+EDR including support of A2DP as well as WiFi b/g, inbuilt GPSand FM radio with RDS support.

The phone has 5 Mpxl camera, and meagre 128MB RAM. However, Omnia comes in two models with 8GB or 16GB interal flash storage and both models support microSD cards with upto 16GB memory. The Omnia comes with all the standard Windows software. In addition, Samsung has included Opera Mobile 9.5, ShoZu, a RSS reader and Podcast fetcher as well as a business card scanner software, a FM radio interface and more.
The Omnia comes with a good music player and video support including Divx support. You can watch Divx movies on TV through the onboard TV connectivity.

The rumor is that AT&T will launch this device in North America in Q3 2008. However, it will first launch in Germany in August on 4 operators – Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2 and E-Plus

  4. […] Neither the operators nor Samsung have confirmed these rumors. You can read the Omnia review here and here. You can read the comparison to HTC Touch Diamond here. Posted by dvdand Filed in […]

  5. will this phone require a data plan for internet access, etc. like a blackberry. I am hoping not since the data plan itself is $30 extra a month

  6. Scott, While the pricing has not been released yet, I am sure that the phone will require data plan in addition to the voice plan. Unfortunately, the network operators have figured out that the data plan is their cash cow. So, they are going to require it for all new smartphones.
