If Samsung want to do the I8000 the real successor of I900 Omnia must make this phone better than I900 in all its features. So, do not be scared for the RAM and for the memory. Im sure that SAMSUNG will manage finally to put to I8000 16GB ang a very good RAM.

Im using omnia right now. I like WinMo. BUT I dun like resistive screen and 65k color. Its nothing samsung can do. Its something microsoft MUST DO. Let WinMo7 able to run on capacitive screen with no color restiction. And ofcourse make virtual buttons such as 'x' close button BIG. Then it will make me 100% happy and ppl will forget the existance of iph. lol.

I expect from the Omnia 2 to have at least more RAM than the current i900, faster processor while being more energy efficient, 32GB instead of the current max 16GB (with expandable slot), stereo sound, and of course an 8MP camera.
The rest is all about the OS, and some tweaking software.

I am using windows pocket PC since it was first launched. For many years I used HP Ipaq equipped with windows CE, then came Windows mobile 2003, 2005, 2006 and now windows 6.1 and 6.5 for mobile phones with its all capability of a pocket PC. Even I want to say that Omnia is among the best of ant smart phone, I expect an increase in RAM now 1GB if possible an WXGA screen display and 10 megapixel camera with a good battery life in Omnia 2.

Samsung Omnia was the best mobile phone with windows mobile when it came out. This will happen with Omnia2 too.

I re-read the news, and it says "one of the most popular phone ever." And yes, when the i900 came out, it was one of the most popular WM phone. In fact, it still is, until WM6.5 comes out.

Between the X2 and this Omnia2, I think it will be a hard call. Judging by its number (i.e. i8000 compared to i8910), I really don't expect much in return from Samsung.

I think I prefer the X2 with the keyboard. But then again, we will have to see the form factor of the Samsung phone, s&xy...

Releasing the Omnia2 should be about right, just after vacation. :)
I still have to see the specs of the Omnia2. The Omnia HD was a "no no" to me (HD sound problem + OS).

I bet you the Samsung M8920 12 mega pixel will not be a smartphone it will use stupid proprietary software, I say this because it has a Xenon Flash & no one will put a Xenon flash on a smartphone except Sony Ericsson with its Satio.

I do hope this will be a smartphone (win mobile, Symbian, Android???) Come on I want a Win Mobile with Xenon Flash or a Symbian Foundation with Xenon flash (not S60 v5)
