I am posting here to tell everyone about the price of the Samsung Omnia HD and also, my opinion of the Nokia N97 and this phone. Well, first of all, I just brought the HD for only 590 with free overnight shipping. Go to CellsWholeSale.com. They are selling it for 599.99. Just call them and ask them for a 10 dollars coupon and also free overnight shipping. They will agree to it. This is definitely the best place to buy cell phones. I just brought a Samsung S8000 from them like 3 weeks ago. I got it for 30 bucks cheaper then everywhere else and with free overnight shipping. To top it off, If you find any site with a lower price, they will beat it and still offer free overnight shipping. CellsWholeSale.com is definitely the best site to buy cell phones. Trust me, I do not work for them. I am a consumer, just like you guys. I just want everyone to buy cheap phones. Now, to the Nokia N97 comparisons. I still have not gotten the Omnia HD yet, since it will be here wednesday. But my brother has the N97. I played with it for a few days before. I can honestly say, it is a major, major disappointment. I mean, I was waiting for the N97 to come out since I first saw pictures of it on gsmarena. So, I waited over half year to actually get the phone. Once I got it, I was amazed by the looks of the phone. I think its beautiful. But that is all it has, looks. The phone is soooo slow, I was about to break it. I am serious. It crashed on me a few times in those few days. It lagged like no tomorrow when I tried to delete and put songs in. Even my brother, who first thought it was the best phone he ever used, says it sucks after 2 weeks of using it. I am serious, Nokia done a really bad job with the N97. They are actually coming out with a similar version of the N97 for t-mobile very soon. But with the same processor as the Iphone 3gs and this Omnia HD. That should have been what the N97 is. But the difference is, the slider does not open up the same. Well, in conclusion. I am a very very experience cell phone user. I love cell phones. I had countless cell phones. So, from my experience, I really think this Samsung Omnia HD is the best phone for the money. If you think about it, 590 for a top of the line phone is not bad at all. I am sure even after 6 months, this will still be the best phone, specs wise, that is out. There will be phones from LG and Sony or even Nokia with either 8 or 10 or 12 MP cameras or HD video, but none of those will have both. Plus, even if they have both, the price will be around 700 or more when it first comes out. By that time, this Omnia HD will be around mid 500. So, I am sure from now until Jan-Feb, This Samsung Omnia HD will be one of the best phones out, if not the best phone. Not to mention only for 500 something. Pound for Pound, Dollar per Specs, this phone is the best.
As many reader post that this phone showing in Samsung India Mobile Upcoming section with 1GHz processor. But as per Gsmarena it is ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz. So,it is very much confusing for me. Is it only writing mistake in "Samsung India' site or something other ealse.

Disk partition is a good idea. I don't have any S60 samsung phones to try. Already gave away my old i550.
Hope someone in this forum can try and tell us about their experience.

Even phone software updater is downloadable and you can check if theres a update available for your phone.
Unfortunatly i have no samsung phone at this time to check if it works properly.
Thanks to shahram

I use the e71 and would love having this phone for my mrs. She does all her backup on my laptop.
Isn't it Nokia's responsibility to fully support other brands S60 phones?
Hi, I am just wondering what is the best way for me to get my GPS up and operating in Australia ? Thanks.
Hey every one,
im so interested in buying this phone. but i also like the way n97 looks, i know hd the has better specs.
but in my country hds have no warranty and all the boxes are open(seal broken) but inside the box i can see all the things are new and ok.
so do you guys recommend buy it in this situation? or just buy the n97 with warranty?
the samsung official distributor say it wont be available on the markat in at least two mounth.
Also if I buy the hd how can i check if its not fake or used? Any code to check its software version? language package, ferquency band and serial number?
Also how can i check if its not debranded?
I can buy n97 for $600(with warranty) and the omnia hd 8g for $700(without warranty).
Any answers and suggestions would be highly appreciated?
