too bad they promised home updates for the samsung i8510 innovated an NEVER followed through.
The last update is now over a year old (via Apollo) no official ones from Samsung from home. I will not buy another phone. Support is practically non existant.
My 8megapixel innov8 makes pointless videos due to the .acc codec that does not allow you to hear or understand what is going on in the video!
come on samsung!
Since this is Samsung's last Symbian phone they should really pull all their effort to bring the best (and maybe the last) firmware update. So that Omnia HD user wouldn't be feeling left out.
It could be be the best mobile devise but even now, one year after release the firmware is crap. I have never seen a device which had hardware possibilities but nobody wanted to release any software to activat it.
I have sold my Omnia HD and never buy Samsung again
plz plz plz put back fm transmitter... it is a perfect wishlist for me!
[deleted post]you are correct. I even dare say this is the best phone on the market to date, and yes to all you haters out there there are phones whit better cameras, prossesors and bigger screens but show me one phone that has an 8mpix camera, can film in HD, has an 3,7 AMOLED screen and a 1500 mAh battery. I dare you
Companies adopt this sort of lack-of-support-for-released-handsets type of attitude for three reasons imho:
- Because it's the industry-standard attitude (yeah cross right over to that other camp, see if you get treated any better...)
- Because they they stand to gain nothing (profits from the next big thing far outweigh benefits of customer loyalty...)
- And finally, simply because they can (angry about lack of support? Oh yeah? And what are you going to do about it, huh? We fear the competition, not YOU...)
And while we're at it, let me translate those exquisitely crafted company excuses from marketese to english:
- "due to negative feedback": as with anything else in the world, there were people who didn't like it, and we think that absolves us from having to offer it to those who did.
- "too hard to implement": It can't be showed in for free at the end of some poor shmuck's endless task list and get done in ten minutes tops, we would have to actually pay someone to work on it since some of it might even take two or three days to code. And we need that money for the management bonuses, you know.
- "conflicts with carriers": You, the customer, think you are our master? Read my lips: Carriers are the ones who buy our phones, what you are is mere statistics. In the "millions of handsets" game people are gonna buy either way, no offended individual (or even group) matters.
to little to late. I've sold my i8910 few weeks ago and i'm glad i did. To many issues with that phone. But most important is how people at i8910forum.com are brutal to eachother.
I'm pretty excited about the new generation OMAP Series 4 Processors.
Check this out:
1.) hardware accelerators enable full HD 1080p, multi-standard video encode/decode.
2.) up to 20-megapixel imaging
3.) Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 @ 1GHz or more
4.) Integrated POWERVR™ SGX540 graphics accelerator drives 3D gaming and 3D user interfaces.
I wish Samsung will use this chip on upcoming models.

Putting symbian on a entry level device is ok, but not on such an expensive device though.
Thats why everybody buys an iphone dude not only because is the best but because is perfect quality.
And thats oviously only from APPLE :)
SAMSUNG,NOKIA,HTC,SE,MOTOROLA,LG lost the game longtime ago
you dont realize that all the companys slowly try to copy the iphone ?
Its been 3 years that the first iphone came,they didnt change shape or something else only the camera and cpu and still is the best.
My opinion by an iphone and you will not regret it for a second thx.
we'll just wait for the next version...... or perhaps consider other alternatives with all of the various new releases starting to emerge..... after all, manufacturers must listen, or loose =/
the problem with Samsung firmware was that they are so region specific. Why not having one general update then just change language package. So flasing wouldn't be an option.
5ushi, 12 Jan 2010Unfortunately, people are too desperate to have the latest and greatest. One should understand... more"So basically, you should wait at least 4 or 5 months before buying the phone you have in mind - it will at least give the phone time to iron out the bugs and what not (and let you read user reviews from people who are stupid enough to buy the greatest and latest as soon as it hits the market."
~ Sorry but from basic consumerism's standpoint,this sort of product delivery behavior can't be tolerated let alone be accepted and simply has nothing to do with general impatience of in relation to this "greatest and latest" euphoria apparently "suffered" by smartphone/gadget fans/buyers.Firmware updates to FIX BASIC LEFT OUT FUNCTIONS hardly constitutes this?And we're not just talking about Samsung here.It seems to be an accepted norm for literally ALL market players and whose fault is this if the end user are supposed to just take it lying down?Misleading press releases through even official channels,not 3rd party blogs or media and sometimes out in the open blatant over-promises has led to the current dilemma.Companies shouldn't launch beta models to market and that's that.It's only natural if people would expect what's on paper once the shop opens?The better advice is rather than wait 4-5 months,vote with our money and just buy what works even if it means a basic or featurephone would do.
