This fone makes samsung proven as the best compared to SE n Nokia..
Idou still behind omnia hd..
just look at :
1. 16M AMOLED 3.7 inch with mineral glass scratch resistant vs TFT 16M 3.5 inch no mineral glass of Idou
2. 3.5mm jack plus hdmi port of omnia vs idou whioh doesn't have 3.5mm or hdmi
3. Omnia has powerful cpu to rec at hd res and capable to play movies with 3mbps bitrate while idou still unknown and even xperia which runs on qualcomm 528mhz just capable to play max at 1mbps bitrate!!!
4. Omnia capable to play divx movie while idou must use separate app
5. Omia has toucwiz homescreen which very2 customizable while idou just standard synmbian like 5800xm
6. Main disadventage of amnia just 8mp + led flash only
LoKKy, 19 Feb 2009Arm 11 - 600MHzThe Complete is :
Texas Instruments 34xx series (no specific till samsung announce the cpu)
TI OMAP 34xx chipset family contains:
ARM 1176JZF-S core clock with A8-cortex architecture run at 600 - 1GHz (3430 runs on 600, 3450 runs at 1GHz)
PowerVR SGX (MBX Succesor)
A8 cortex claimed work 3x faster than omap 2 series with the same clock
So far it's the most powerful chipset (also used on palm next smatfone)
While Sony Idou probably use ST-NXP Nomadik STn8820 runs max at 520 mhz ( Also powerful chipset and support HD recording too )
Nokia N97,5630,n86 probably use ARM1136 with the same clock 600mhz but omap and nomadik work much2 faster..coz ARM1136 are the same level with omap 2 seies (does not support A8-cortex n hd video)
Samsung makes their own microprocessor, touch screen, camera module...That is why they are getting ahead of Nokia. Now that Samsung is working on their software as well, it will become first in no time.
Zatarix, 17 Feb 2009anyone knows what kinda processor this bad boy has?Arm 11 - 600MHz
This is the iPhone killer finally!!! I will get rid of my iPhone and get this gadget when it comes out. I wonder how much it will cost, probably about $900 or so. This Samsung has everything that Apple missed on the iPhone. Apple will need about 10 years to come up with something close to this Samsung. Good job Samsung!!!
Sirwan, 18 Feb 2009wow very nice I want to buy it when it arrive to Denmark ya,i am also nplanning 2 buy dis phn,

Anonymous, 19 Feb 2009After looking at both sample videos the cars do seem to jerk, hopefully a small software probl... moreYeah i hope samsung release the new fw to fix this prob..btw still the best phone till now
After looking at both sample videos the cars do seem to jerk, hopefully a small software problem - the videos play at 24FPS but is actually recorded at 22 something - possible because it can't capture 24 frames fast enough? The minimum is set to 4.8 and maximum 24.
Carrying on from the FPS, it seems as though a lot of the software has been borrowed through the Samsung INNOV8 and Pixon. Both the INNOV8 and Pixon are known to record audio which results in the quality being 'garbled' if there's a lot of background noise (for example, in a car, crowded area etc.) this is identified by the audio codec used to encode the audio which is AMR-NB (Adaptive multi-rate compression, narrow band) which is a speech codec (At 13kbps 8kHz the same used for voice calls on GSM and UMTS.
I'm not sure why this is used for recording high quality video but is something that needs to be fixed. For comparison my old Samsung E serious recorded poor video quality records (15FPS, QVGA with low bitrates) with AAC-LC encoded audio at 32kbps which was great, although higher would always be better.
Long post I know but in conclusion - hopefully this is fixed or else i'll be putting off the i8910 until it is fixed, why combine high quality 720p video with audio meant for 'low quality' voice calls meant to not strain a telephone network?
If anyone can help forward this to Samsung it'd be great and hopefully fix the problems with the Pixon and INNOV8 in a firmware update.
Raz, 19 Feb 2009No TV out??It has tv-out..use 3.5mm jak or hdmi,plus also has fm transmiter
