Just a word of warning.
If anyone is considering buying this phone in the recent future then dont! It seems to me that Samsung have released the phone early with pretty much no support. It also seems that Samsung are more interested in developing and promoting other phones, and the i8910 has been brushed under the carpet!
I say this because i have had this phone since mid May, and i have had nothing but trouble with firmware/software. You cannot just merely download new firmware, you need to send your phone off to samsung so they can do it! (at least in the uk).
The biggest problem for me is Samsung studio 7. May i just point out that this probably the single most biggest piece of s**t I have ever come accross! It is so tempermental that it will drive you insane and reduce you to tears! I installed this on three different machines, one with XP, and the other two with Vista. Same issues on each computer. It is just totally and utterly rubbish!
It is such a shame because this phone has so much potential. I have gone past the point of no return now and have purchased a Iphone 3gs. This thing just works first time, all the time. No tampering, no headaches!
I will be selling my i8910.
Belmont, 10 Aug 2009Can somebody tell me if the Samsung HD has hdmi port ? It has a multipurpose port (mini-USB) for charging/USB and SD A/V (these cables are included in package). I don't know if there is a mini-USB to HDMI cable. Nevertheless, it supports DLNA if your TV does.

I wonder how to edit videos on Omnia HD?! It's a great set but lacks video editing. Also, to GSMARENA; I would be grateful if you could add to each mobile phone specs. some information about compatibility with certain cars bluetooth connection like: BMW & Mercedes? When I searched BMW site for mobile bluetooth compatibility, I could not find infos on all mobile sets.
so what about all the other i8910's that are not from india, will they have a 1ghz cpu as well? or is that one a fake one?

Does Omnia HD have FM transmiter? Because I'm comparing it with Nokia N97 and tahat phone has it. And if Omnia HD lacks of FM transmiter, so is it possible to instal this aplication in the phone?
