will this work in US. With 3g serverc. Or do i have to wait for now please let me know anyone. Thanks. for your time.
I am from Singapore and I have played around with both Omnia and Touch Diamond in a roadshow here.
Omnia's touch response time sucks. Diamond is much better. Of course Diamond still lags behing the fluid iPhone.
Try all 3 and you will know.
Samsung has amazing high quality phones, always has and those saying they make copies (iPhone morons) get a life! iPhone never came close to Samsung, no 3g, no good camera, no good phone features not to mention it's a brick. You guys get scammed, it's just ncie pictures and graphics. The new iPhone is the same, 2 meg cameras ouuuuu samsung had 3.2 years back and now has an amazing 5 meg not to mention always had 3g for years and BLUETOOTH A2DP which again apple does not. Apple is just good at advertising and getting you un-savi users to buy their product. Iphone doesn't even have phone features that existed on Samsung phones 4 years back. It's really sad and it's gets 7.5 ratings, ya impressive compared to Samsungs 8.5 standard throughout most of their phones. i900 is a great piece of work, if I wanted an Ipod that rings I'm sure I could make one lol
Its pretty great, but it can never beat nokia's N95 or N96. As Nokia wil always launch the best phones in the end, when sony released the 8 mega pixel phone nokia will release one better and has greater potential. So in my opinion this phone is not so great
so this phone gonna be available in august in north america its will be cammed instinct
can a kind person pleassseee compare this phone to se xperia for me pleassee..?
like their pros and cons and otr stuff..
Thanka a lot Striker. I think i can wait till then.I initially thinking going for SonyEricson X1 but as this phone(i900) is about to be released, this wouldn't be bad choice at all.

I spoke to their retention team yesterday as I put in a request for a PAC Code last week as I was on the verge of getting a Touch Diamond from Voda. Changed my mind at the weekend when I did a bit more research and realised the Omnia would be better for me.
So knowing it wasn't out yet, I waited for the inevitable phone call from 02 retentions which came yesterday. The fella I spoke to sounded really clued up and when I mentioned the Omnia he said he wanted one himself. Without even looking it up he told me the release date was 11/8.
Also, I work for a large UK telecoms distributor and "Week 33" has been getting thrown around a lot.
Although I very much doubt we'll get the free Xbox360 as I've not heard a word about that until I saw it on here, looks like thats just for the Italians.
i hope striker is right but thats not what they told me last week, they hadnt even heard of the i900, will keep a look out and see what happens but if its the 11th il be really chuffed and i hope Voda get there finger out too.

Well, I'm a bit disappointed with Omnia's touchscreen abilities. A few weeks ago I've tested f480, though there were some cons but still, I've just loved it - It was so responsive and user friendly. But it isn't happening with Omnia. I get the impression that the touch screen is inferior to f480's (though I must say, I'm testing beta version). First of all it's not so responsive as you like to be - it's not that bad, but also not that great as in f480. And there's so little time were can you use just your thumb, because 90% of interface is standard for WM6.1. And if program is thumb friendly you would always come across some buttons that can be pressed only with stylus (especially with drop down menus).
Though there's virtual QWERTY keyboard with not so small icons, i find pressing it a bit of target, because there is no vibrating feedback (yes, it's on, it works on some buttons, but somehow Samsung forgot to implement it fully).

oliver, 14 Jul 2008To all the lucky omnia users i have 1 question . How important is the stylus to this phone ? ... morethe samsung bits of it can be used with a thumb but inevitably you will need to move to the underlying windows parts eg settings and there, you will need either a stylus or fingernail or pen. this is a conseqence of windows having so many options for configuring. come to think of it, if this phone runs on symbian, it would be so much more thumbable.
