Or you still can wait on reviews by profesionals :-)

OmniaHD is running the same OS as Nokia 5800 and N97 (i.e. Symbian 9.4), so all 3rd party applications should be compatible.
Maybe you have some problems with sertificates and signing of applications. Did you have any Symbian smartphones before? What is said in error message?

Hello guys... Am definitely returning mine tomorrow, me and my bro have looked everywhere on the net for Omnia hd apps, but we did not find any, as if the lack of 3rd party apps was not enough trouble already, when making calls the sound was somewhat awkward, it was like the person you are talking to was in a noisy environment. The stories about the crap sound quality during hd recording, is really true, it's is just plain rubbish, i'll post the hd video i recorded so u guys would hear for ur self, as for the hd video quality, its ok but nothing that would wow you, its exxact same thing as recording with the usual dvd quaity found in nokia phones, the only difference is the file format and resolution. You can't use the phone with one hand, its awkwardly long and the width is like that of the iphone. The screen is really sharp and bright, but where you would really hate the phone is if u were outdoors, under sunlight the screen is just plain black, you can hardly do anything, taking photos outdoors was a nightmare, you have to stand under a shade or cover in order to see the viewfinder.
Overall to be honest i did not enjoy the phone, I prefer my samsung innov and my n82 to this phone. You can't really enjoy doing work on this phone honestly. For me the phone was not worth it, the HD recording is just a gimmick, you would never use it, cuz its worse than standard recording. And the app problem isn't orange's fault, cuz my bro's 5800 from orange installs apps and themes. Now am hoping orange get the N97 quick so I can exchange my omnia for it. Thanks

I'm nearly ready to return that phone,will wait till the call from samsung.If you are not going to use it for browsing,every day taking pictures or videos.I will say choose something else.My previous phones HTC touch,iPhone 3g and now this one.I have tryed all different sizes of phones and this one is just too big for texting and making calls-everyday usage.Be serious, how many pictures/videos in a week you are taking ??? Do you want big screen ??? go for any phone with screen between 3.2" - 3.5"....Battery life is way worst than with iphone 3g.Iphone lasted a day,this one not even.if i will keep him(50%)second battery is must.This i'm writing to you without disapointment from applications...

anyway, fingers crossed!
i was speaking with guy from orange today and he had no clue-they still didn't get any info about this phone thus he can't help us out.Got the number to samsung and gave them a call.Operator on other side took all info about phone and programs which didn't want install or installed and didn't work properly.She said that technician is gonna give me a call in next 3 days.She said that they are going to test this apps.
Fingers cross :-)
Hi phone owners & techies,
GSMArena says the following: "If however you are ready to consort to lower resolution videos, you can always use the TV-out port on the device itself that’s intended for transferring SD (non-HD) content via a cable."
Now I do not understand; does this mean I can't transfer HD-recorded content from the phone to a non-HD TV via cable? and why? What has the resolution of the vid to do with transfering it to a TV set?
mark, 21 May 2009same here,got a call off them this morning telling me to come in and get mine,only problem is ... moreMine was an online order too - dont mind waiting till the morning. Dont like dealing with the stores direct because they are too pushy - And not blowing my own trumpet, but i always seem to know more about the things they are selling than they do! I had a look at the HD instore, and i had a guy come over (i made it perfectly clear the HD was the only phone i wanted) trying to sell me a Magic on Voda... Did he just not listen? lol
