Anonymous, 17 Apr 2009hey, we have the same concern - no lens cover and the glossy back cover. Why samsung why?What are you talking??:))
Omnia hd DO HAS lens cover! check the new pictures and info on the net...
i start gravitate to symbian samsung mobile phone (previos symbian nokia mobile phone) like omnia hd and innova8 but i don't like touchscreen and huge slider form,,so i hope that samsung release symbian with candybar and convenssional keypad and small slider with 16 m display resolution,,

Oh and btw auto rotate can be a con, so in a way I'm glad Samsung decided to omit it. It's annoying how my iPod touch always rotates, when I accidently tilt it even slightly. And people, multi-touch can be implemented, perhaps with a firmware update or something.
This is a great phone, reasonable price too, it has absolutely everything. My only concern is the lack of a lens cover and the plastic cover they opted to go with instead of the brushed metal one. Symbian is a also a brilliant operating system people, trust me I've used the 5800. It's going to get tons of new applications. The RAM on this phone is somewhere in the 200s not too sure, but comeon people this phone has a better processor than the PSP! It's upto Samsung to utilize that fact. The huge battery is definitely a plus,and I'm hoping to get it as soon as I can. And honestly, you do not need a camera which is more than 8 megapixels, as the quality will be brilliant on this one too. The video recording sounds fantastic too, the first of it's kind. What more to say?

First looks at specs gives me a feel that it is a feature rich high-end phone from samsung.
I am bit confused about this phone, which market samsung targeting this phone at?
This is not a serious business phone because of limited capability of s60 OS to sunc with mail clients like outlook/notes (specially in secured environments where pop3 don't work).
As a true multimedia device this has a drawback that frame rate for video is only 24 FPS.
Specs also do not talk about the RAM of phone clearly.

And xperia, such a low design not to mention the specs. So, dream on.. because idou will not come up by this year haha..

Behave like adults. Now getting back to the subject, of course Omnia HD has a better specs sheet compared to Idou save for the camera. Nonetheless, pixels do not count & if you are not convinced ask even an amateur photographer.On the other hand Idou, in yr opinion may be a better phone. So be it.Speak about the pros & cons of the instrument & no personal attacks pls.
..., 16 Apr 2009lol= lots of loveguys! come on, if we can decided lol= lots of laugh, or lots of loves?? then how can we expect to define and choose between upcoming omnia hd or n97? haha..(just scrap the icrap from the list), sorry apple boys, lol..
