here are some things i have to say. comparing satio to omniaHD, for still frame shots, satio obviously wins. for video, omniaHD wins. .but thinking about this some, most ppl will never view pictures, or watch videos off of the actual phone. (on TV/computer). at 100% view, you wouldnt be able to notice a difference on either of these. it isnt until you zoom in that the extra MP or video quality starts to make a difference. for this i have to say having a better still frame camera would be better than a recording one. its very common to zoom into pictures to resize, crop, or get a better look at something in the background, but for video, zooming in is almost never used. (lol we all have that zoom feature on our dvd players and we never use it, haha.) the next thing, is the video quality. ive heard that the screen on the omnia makes the picture look clearer, now i havent heard anything to confirm this but i wouldnt doubt it since its made by samsung. the omnia has DivX, but you can dl a mobile DivX player yourself, this is the same with the Opera browser the omnia comes with.
the satio does not have spell check or auto correct, which i personally find very refreshing, im sick of my phone 'correcting' my spelling only to go back and change it to the way i originally had it. i dont like to start all my words with caps, or use apostrophe`s, ect, when i text, i dont like to see a squiggly under my 'lol'`s. lols. i have have bigger fingers, the satio`s keyboard looks very plain and boring, but it also replaced that style with performance, the keyboard completely optimizes the large screen size, unlike in the iphone, and omniaHD.
the sound quality is another thing, the omnia has ‘stereo speakers’ (2 instead of the satio's 1). i wonder how much of a difference this would actually make, since the speakers are only separated by the phone`s 3.5 inch width.
the 3.5mm headphone jack, and the FM transmitter that the satio chose not to include have been overly bished about. the FM transmitter included in the N97 is very weak. so weak infact, that the only demo i could find was shot in an underground parking garage. sonyericsson, instead chose a different route, and gave the satio an integrated blu-tooth design, along with the new HBH-IS800 blu-tooth headphones. i prefer these kind of headphones, because theyre wire-free, and i can use the microphone built into the headphones with these, unlike a pair of 3.5mm headphones. and sure, while 3.5mm headphones can produce a better quality sound than blu-tooth headphones, most of these detailed sounds are beyond what the human ear is capable even of hearing. much like the overkill on HD contrast ratios
im very torn between these two phones myself (satio and omniaHD) i planned to get the satio from the start. but with such limited information on it, i started looking into other phones, and am starting to really like some of the things about the omniaHD. i still plan to get the satio instead of the omniaHD, but i cant deny the omniaHD is a great phone. LOL BUT IM LOYAL TO SE YO!
keep in mind these are both open source phones so its entirely possible to change the interface these phones use, for a more comfortable feel. id be amazed if anyone actually read all that. sorry for spelling/grammar errors.
does anyone kno of a good website i will be able to buy the satio from when it first comes out. id like to have a few sites in mind so i can be ready to preorder, or order as soon as a price is set. can anyone suggest a relyable site?

Jackson, 11 Jul 2009As usual another high end SE phone that lags behind all others and will eventually be out of d... moreThere goes another stupid comment. How can Satio be outdated when it comes out.
First. It uses Symbian 5th Ed. We all know it is still in infancy. And how many handsets are there in the market sports 5th Ed?
Second, the 12mp cam it carries. I'd say the Satio is very much in our midst when it comes out.
