Hi all, I just bought the Samsung Omnia I900 Omnia yesterday.
I'm in the UK, and although... moreCan anyone please tell me:
 Is youtube video works good on mobile via 3.5G network (service provider)?
 Can I connect this mobile to my laptop to browse internet on laptop via 3.5G network?
Please give your feedbacks so that i can decide to buy this mobile.
Vodafone UK say as of Monday their shops will have stock, tariff from £35 but beware this is not the true cost. If you want to use the GPS function (as most will surely) on the Omnia, it will cost you another £4.25 per month. On O2 such service has always been free!
I Went to Vodaphone today. The Omnia was not available as their website says and they didn't know when it will be available. An other shop (can't remember their name) was talking about week 35. Finally The Phone house told me it will be official announced in the third week of September.
So we have to wait an other month or so.
I think Samsung has their reasons to postpone the launch. In this way they can fix bugs, they want to avoid problems as the iPhone has now!!! They also have good alternatives, all shops need to be fully supplied, marketing must be right for the specific markets, etc.
Finally: I don't understand why some persons are so impatient, it just a phone!!! There are far more important things in life that a phone. So wait and be happy that you can buy a nice phone as the Omnia. In some countries the costs of this phone is more than their annual earnings.
i am using this phione in the us and it is awesome. blows away the iphone. the only thing i cant figure out is to make the screen go from horizontal to vertical on the internet. it orks fine on the camera. thanks
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2008Here's my take on your post regarding things you cannot do with the iphone. 1)No video reco... moreman iphone 3g really is just years behind features of other phones, all it is is just an ipod with good UI and phone functions.. "i use my canon sd to take pictures" who are you batman?. Most of us have phones good enough or at par with point and shoot cameras, out there. "oh I cant send mms i can email it though" well for some countries with advance network features we use mms in a normal basis coz its so much FASTER. Man just to sum it up an omnia even with a buggy firmware will always be better that your iphone 3g.

It takes probably the best pics of any windows mobile phone out. You have to view the pics on a computer screen to see the quality, because they look a little fuzzy on the phone.
got it!!! waited ages for it didnt like the silver 16 gb have got the 8gb, device of the year so far however i think samsung should have aborted there widget ideas a long time ago they are pointless on a windows mobile device but a part from that
the camera great video record great opera browers great
the stylus looks like a lip gloss (think i will keep that in my pocket lol) 9.5 /10 guys try it
after looking forwad to this phone coming out i went into my local vodafone store to try it out and i wish i hadnt very dissapointing... Poor camera my 2 year old k800i takes lot better pics... Very slow to react and although the screen is 3.2 it is not wide enough music speaker very low very dissapointed... I will hold on till december for nokias real iphone killer.. 8mp xenon flash 3.2 screen and dual stereo speakers
Abhijit, 23 Aug 2008samsung i900 can only be compared to SE X1 and HTC touch...where did iPHONE came from..??? Some people will just compare just about anything. iPhone can be compared with music players. i900 is better be compared with other Windows 6.1 mobile devices.

Anonymous, 23 Aug 2008I thought you just said that it keeps on crashing and that you have to turn it off and then on... moreiPhone is a iPod with call and low quality camera (withour settings) function. How can u compare it with a windows mobile made for communication and usage? U dont see us comparing SE X1 with a laptop, do u?
i just got it and i got at&t i was able to get the internet to work though i had to enter it manually but i am not able to get the mms settings to work. does anyone know what mms settings that i need for at&t to work with this phone?

So how does that kick the iphone's butt? And oh, didn't you say that you have to look for the firmware upgrade yourself to get some bugs fixed? LOL. That's ridiculous. With the iphone, you get a text message from Apple and AT&T when a necessary upgrade is available to improve the iphone's performance. So I guess it's the iphone that kicks all the other phones' butts =)
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2008Dean if you look under monthly plans and current phones it IS there from £35 just checked again. Yep, i checked again and it was back on, strange!!!!!!
I got the 16GB version from Orange for free on Wednesday 20th August. Its an 18month contract with unlimited data and texts (fair usage policy but who cares - orange dont), 1500 xnet anytime mins and all for a jaw dropping £37.50 per month!!!!
Some of the contact software keeps crashing though, and it somehow powers down completley and you have to turn the device off and back on (or even take the battery out!)
Saying that it is a fantastic piece of kit, the first revision of public firmware when released should solve all these problems (or you can hack it to load the latest singapore firmware to fix it!)
The Samsung i900 kicks Apple and HTC in the balls thats for sure!!! ;)
