Too bad it come with no led flash, no windows phone 7 os, no capacitive touchscreen, no g-sensor, no true gps (not a-gps) and the procesor too slow (hope 1ghz speed)

During a call, frequent disconnects caused by my ear touching the screen -- since touch sensitive screen.
Was also unable to install many third party softwares and games. Resolution not supported.
After 30-40 minutes of MP3 playback, auto shutdown without any preamble or warning.
Very dishonest battery charge level indicator.
I don't know whether you faced such problems or not. But my friend -- the owner of the i780, is still dealing with these troubles. And frankly speaking, his fear of the unknown never allowed me to format the phone by the "2767-FULL" code [altered here].
And speaking of the Indian market, the real business people are still stuck to BleakBerry for their QWERTY and e-mails. While the tech-show-off enthusiasts are being carried away by the TV-ads. And I -- standing lone in the middle -- am head-over-heels in love with the i617 especially after watching it in FRINGE :)
Tech giants say that the ARM CORTEX family members have longer life compared to MARVELL simply because of better heat management. Right or wrong?
@ Anonymous: Thanks for that update on the differences, I really don't think that 6.5.3 and 6.5 WM had any significant changes that needed so much attention.
Andy way back to what I see somebody who typed why din't the i617 make it to India. Well, it did make its way to India the i617 were sold in selected outlets in Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad I noticed it in many peoples hands and realized that this phone wasn't that great except that it had a nice Jog Dial the processor was really slow at 260Mhz and with no WiFi it would for sure been a flop, and bombed really badly in the Indian market, it was after the launch of the Nokia Enterprise series of E61, E62 and E61i which suddenly saw a great demand for business phones in India the E61i was the best ever built and sold at 16k but was later phased out due to its bulky and limited features. That was when Samsung decided to launch the i780 and this did pretty decent in the Indian market with few buyers considering its had very bad sunlight legibility it would make it impossible for anybody to read anything standing under sun and this was one reason it suddenly bombed and MS was better know for their PC OS and not for the mobiles just a few who really enjoyed the phone after purchasing realized that the i780 can do wonder in comparison to many similar phones out in the market. The i780 till date is best know for this multi-tasking features along with great GPS and amazing speaker clarity and not to forget that monstrous 624Mhz Marvell processor.
They've been many phone since 2years thats come out with 1Gig processors but, the phone that revolutionized the concept of much better multi-tasking has always been the samsung i780.
I really wonder whats the processor speed on the B7350 Omnia PRO 4? If its going to be the 524Mhz I'll drop my plans of picking up this phone and stick to my i780 and wait for the new MS KiN two.
The new Acer beTouch E130 also has caught my attention looks really neat!
After hitting my head -- trillions of times -- against a brick-wall for TWO years, I just gave up on the i617. The phone never came to India and I never could get my hands on it.
Handled a friend's i780 a few times. Looks and feels like a brick. Near total impossible to stow in jeans and shirt pockets.
Questions : Would SAMSUNG ever bring the i617 to India? The B7350 -- when would it be launched? The guesstimated price? Would somebody be kind enough to share the info.?
Bottom Line : Restricting an excellent phone like the i617 to the region of America is very cruel. Very ruthless, indeed.
Alwin, 19 Jun 2010E5 will be winIn what respects???

Few are saying that he would never buy this one.
Why guys? whats the prob?Tell me coz i thought to buy this one.
Sushi, 16 Jun 2010I guess the only difference between Omnia Pro 4 and the B7330 is the 3.5mm jack port the pro4 ... moreThe big difference between the Omnia 4 and B7330 was that, the Omnia 4 runs on Windows Professional 6.5.3 (like the SE Aspen) while B7330 is just standard Windows 6.5
Wait, the 'Omnia pro 4' is better than the 'omnia pro 5'??? I really don't get Samsung...WAY toooooo many phones.......confusing model branding, and "cookie-cutter" generic looks! SIS!

i have i 780 and i can`t belive that samsung have made anew phone without optical joystick in 2010 year which is worst than i 780
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2010whatz the difference between b7330 and this?I guess the only difference between Omnia Pro 4 and the B7330 is the 3.5mm jack port the pro4 has and the secondry camera can record in 30fps which the Omnia pro 4 doesn't offer.
I'm guessing the the processor could be the same as the B7330. Until we actually see the review of the phone or probably until Samsung doesn't come up with a processor details you sure can guess its 524Mhz baby in there!
