on the samsung uk website they listed original spec for the omnia windows they haven't updated the spec for the omnia hd or more like it they are lazy to update . if you compare them u will see its identical to omnia windows.
Ya, i've heard some news about Omnia HD will not be released in some countries, because of some more powerful phones will be released in Q3 or 4!!
Guys, here are some problems, is samsung's official website wrong?? Why the web posted that the omnia HD's spec are 65K colour TFT screen, the resolution is WQVGA, and the battery is 1440mAh?? Can anyone tell me what is the happening???
KC, 04 May 2009Hey guys! I just spoke to someone at Samsung South Africa and she said that they've cancelled ... moreHello everybody... same also here I asked here in UAE about the release of this phone... and they said that they are not sure or maybe it will not be released here in UAE... is it true? considering that UAE is the hub of middle east... they should also release it here....
Druid, 04 May 2009It will be an expensive item. Damn, I am poor.I agree with the comment above yours, don't hurry and don't worry about the price, the phone will be released on May 25th, but after 2 months you will be able to get it easily new for 250-300 euros from ebay :)
be patient, that's it:))
Hey guys! I just spoke to someone at Samsung South Africa and she said that they've cancelled the launch of the Omnia HD here. Can anyone confirm this or add any insight? Really sucks man... I would give my left pinky finger for this phone!
Valentino, 04 May 2009I understand that you sustain omnia will be ~500 euros but we don't have a price for N97. A co... moren97 will be 550 Euros, look at the official site of n97, its about 700 USD.
The battery that you are talking about is the Prototype battery(yes final hardware but prototype battery). No one still has the Final battery for OmniaHD.
Im am sure that it will last at lease 3-4 days in standby, 2 days in normal usage.

A confirmed one. And it is in vain if the battery lasts 2 days instead of 1 and 1/2 (30% more for amoled) if you don't see what's on the screen in the sunlight :( I am not fond of Nokia, I'm just trying to decide and not regret when talking about ~500 euros.
Anonymous, 04 May 2009www.samsung.com/uk shows Omnia HD using metal cover that site is outdated.. it is already confirmed that it is using a glossy plastic.. look it even said that omnia has 65K Colour TFT Screen
only thing that is tricky here is the battery life of samsung couse i dont relly think it can stand over more than 24h with that screen,i think it will be the same thing like inovv8

-search some videos from youtube, and you'll its supports TV-out cable
-Go to allaboutsymbian or phonearena and read there latest reviews, you can see that it is capable of handwriting recognition.
-search in google, and see than OmniaHD can support up to 32Gb of memory stick.
THE preview of GSM arena about omniaHD is too old.

If you click on http://www.gsmarena.com/glossary.php3?term=display-type you will see that capacitive does not support handwriting recognition, only resistive ones. Tv out for Omnia HD is not confirmed yet. I agree with you about slow processor from N97. Omnia has 8+16 or 16+16 gb. We don't know the prices yet. But thanks again.

-OmniaHD is Capacitive and HAS writing recognition
-OmniaHD has TV-Out for nonHD/HD TVs via Cable just like nokias
-32gb of N97 is worthless with its SLOW processor, while OmniaHD can have a total of 48gb, 16gb+32gb(memory card)
-OmniaHD will release earlier and it is cheaper in price
-OmniaHD has faster processor than N97
I prefer OmniaHD
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Few days ago someone posted a short clip (here or on phone arena) showing how this phone (i8910) and the i-phone can be seen in the sunlight. Because of its oled screen, you really have to guess what's on the screen. If you, philippines, have it, how is it ? Do you see anything when you're outdoors and on a sunny day ? Does it worth ? Or should I prefer N97's resistive screen ? AND this is for ALL the others reading this forum: should we prefer oled or resistive which enables handwriting recognition ? DNSE against qwerty keyboard ? 8 MP camera against 32 gb memory ? HD filming or tv-out ? Or should we buy the first which appears on the market ? My patience is running out: i8910 or N97 ?
