i better prefer this phone rather than n97 you know what do i prefer this phone than your junk n97? its because of some features of n97 that is being left by the innovation these days! for example: many phones have higher megapixel than this one, 8mp 12mp or sooner it will be 20MP!!! but this, 5MP! HAHAHA that is so-so even cheap immitated china product can do that(even 8MP TOO) and that virtual qwerty, so out of the hood! many phones have qwerty in touchscreens, and don`t forget handwriting functioalaity, AND MANY phones have WINMO OS in their phone, and my conclusions for this phone: SUPER JUNK PHONE!
I believe os has moved to Symbiam to support HD and resolution - can anyone confirm?
this is one of the best 2009 smartphone, but they prefer symbian then windows mobile which i prefer more because of its varieties of application.
...its time to sell my samsung omnia i900... cant wait to take my hands on this new omnia HD....

Samsung !! Is the best !!
Just look at this phones...you honestly can`t say that there is a single Nokia that can outsmart them...There are several mobiles from Samsung with 8 mpx...3-4 models, and Nokia had just released their FIRST 8 MPX PHONE !! They are waaaaayyy behind.
Face The Facts !!
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009I agree!
These numbers clearly shows that Nokia has been loosing ground all last year. Ima... moreYup! Samsung is the biggest corporation..grab every electronic consumer in the world,leading tech..their samsungmobile division just tiny part of samsung giants,when economic crisis,there's no news samsung cuts jobs,while sony,toshiba,nec,ericsson,etc need to cuts jobs
Samsung has biggest money to fund their project..samsung has strategic alliance with microsoft,texas instruments,symbian,nokia,apple,android etc..while nokia just phone maker,and nokia-siemens network only,and yeah..samsung is the main contractor to developt 4G in china
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009Oh come off it! This i8910 is nothing but a poser's paradise. It is not a practical solution. ... moreYour comments are ridiculously one-sided. Though YOU might find a hardware keyboard essential, don't conclude that everyone does. I personally type much faster on a standard alphanumeric keypad, touchscreen or not. The TYTN keyboard was far to small for an adult to use pratically. And I've yet to find at hardware keyboard large enough to allow touch-typing.
I do agree that the camera is not pratical. Though to be honest, I've yet to find much to beat the Innov8 for camera based smart phones.
By biggest concern with this handset is the move to symbian. The nice thing about the omnia was the combination of flexibile processing power, provided by windows, and the more user-friendly samsung overlays. With HTC becoming a real brand in the UK, awareness of windows mobile is on the up. A move to symbian just seems a move in the wrong direction.

These numbers clearly shows that Nokia has been loosing ground all last year. Imagine what will happen this year, when now the difference between Nokia and Samsung products are this big! Last year Nokia lost 2% and Samsung gained 4%. I am sure that this year Nokia will loose at least 10%! And Samsung gain another 5-6 at least.
Nokia is going down!

It is not a practical solution. There is no hardware QWERTY which is essential for serious work. There are serious questions about the fps in the camcording. It is below par. The 8MP stills cam will not make a discernible difference on a phone screen or regular sized prints. There is no Xenon flash so it is not a true cameraphone. Essentially we have an impractical device. A unit designed for people to say "wow" without checking the substance. Alright! Let me join you: "wow"... I've said it! Are you satisfied? Guess what?... I'm not buying it! I'll go for Nokia's N97. Obviously it is the practical solution. Let me give you guys a tip. When buying one of these mini-phone computers- I like to call them multifunctional devices (MFD)-look for the hardware keyboard. If it is not there, conclude that posing has been placed before pragmatism.
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009How the cheap asian brand could be the king??????????I beg to differ. Samsung is the world largest electronics company . Wiki that. And it is also the onli 3 electronics company to post revenue in exceeding USD 100 billion. The other 2 goes to HP and Siemens. Samsung is so powerful it does not borrow to invest, it is virtually debt free and sitting comfortably with more than USD 5 billion in cash. Now compare to your western company, how much financial leverage are they relying on.
samsung is the no.1 company in opinion and experience..
i love its creativity and new new inventions ....

1. Nokia 38.4%
2. Samsung 18%
3. LG 8.7%
4. SE 8.2%
5. Moto 6.4%
samsung share increase from 14% in 2007 to 18% in 2008. while nokia share drop from 40% to 38%. Samsung is the only mobile manufacturer in top 5 to post YOY growth during their 4th sales report.

I don't think so..coz at least samsung n se hear their user,while nokia only change the cover...but it's interesting samsung n se can build multimedia monster with s60 platform..while nokia just conventional "n86,n97"
Why u say nokia is d best?
Qwerty? Samsung also has! C6620,i300,ixxx (much2 better than eseries) and based on windows mobile which clearly the leader in office/bussines focus with their client email,ms office mobile,etc..(symbian only strong at multimedia,their quickoffice are useless compared to ms office)
So nokia not the best. . . .
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009What do u mean behind? Read this carefully if you can.. Nokia is currently the world's larg... moreI think this by no means indicate a Nokia superiority. It only shows that the number of dumb people in the world is increasing! and I am talking serious. Just figure out what Nokia will have to offer in the near future in response to the terrifying potential of Samsung and LG and their giant leaps forward. Only one word I can say: RIDICULUOUS!
Let us all calm down and look at the facts. The flagship of Samsung is the i8910, yet there are a few problems. Look! anyone who wants to do some serious work will need a hardware QWERTY. Screen QWERTYs are not as fast or responsive; and in hot countries sweat and grease is left all over the screen. The option of a hardware QWERTY should be there. Kudos to Nokia N97 for giving us a choice!
My second point is that 8MP on a phone will be hard to distinguish from 5MP. Phone screens are small and most people don't print photos larger than 6*4 inches. Look! 8MP becomes useful if you are printing to poster size. When buying a phone one must distinguish between purpose and posing.
The i8910 claims to sport HD recording. I noticed it is only at 24fps. This is too slow a frame rate. Let us hope this phone doesn't skip frames like a ten year old girl skips a rope!
The screen res is not high enough for such a large screen. Most people will watch their high def recorded video ON THE PHONE. Therefore Samsung should have ensured that they implemented a high res screen. Will Samsung dare put a 1280*720 pixel screen in this phone? I don't think so!
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009I agree,western tech now behind asian!
LG,SAMSUNG,SONY ! Go!
Where is moto? Nokia?
