NO, touch wiz is not as fluid, as responsive and as intuitive as the iphone's multi-touch. But it does offer more features than the iphone, only you have to be really patient because it does not always work the way it should be.

the fone is out on orange and has been since mon 18/08 and yes u.k... moreOrange uk do not have the 8 gig yet, they only have the 16gig, which is what i have recieved two days ago from them direct.
Why there has been a lack or promotion for this phone when Samsung could have easi;y given the iphone a run for their money, i don't know.
I used to be a brand manager for Samsung, and this is out of the ordinary for them not to push the promotion of the phone.
All the people here who say you to all the people have got one that they have bugs version, or you cannot get the 16gig, are just people who cannot get one yet, they may do so in the future but want one now but cannot admit that they can't get one!

U can call all the networks who will confirm this esp o2 voda t-mobile

is it hard to text with your fingers?
1) can you customize ringtones and alarms?
2) can you use the GPS right out of the box?

Consumer rights and all that, no carrier, store, firm, corporation or any other entitie can get away from this, if they tell you they can just speak to offcom and the OFT, they will sort it for you! ( or citizens advice)!
Omnia or Nokia E71?, 21 Aug 2008The 72 pages manual of Omnia is very poor compared with the 220 plus pages manual of i780 (... moreI would has at a guess that the lack of distruction manual is due to most of the help required on a windows mobile is held in the help files on the device itself.

O2 release date for this phone is 20th September.CONFIRMED BY O2 ONLINE.

Check with Daniel!!
i work for o2 and we dont have any info on if or when we will be getting this phone and we normally have it on our forthcoming stock sheets but nothing as yet so if we do stock it it wont be for at least another 4 weeks as we just got our september stock sheet today and this phone isnt on it
i rang vodafone this morning and they say they expect this phone on september 1st stores do normally get stock couple of days earlier but remember if u upgrade in store and u dont like the phone when u get it home u can not exchange it so i gonna wait to order online or over the phone so i have got 14 days to return under the distant sales regulation as i have heard lots of negative comments about the camera quality
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2008Just makes me angry after waiting for this phone for ages, when it finally does my network 02 ... moreYou are being told this wrongly by O2. They are bothered about shifting large stock of Toccos first. Samsung tell me directly that O2 are taking it, eventually. If you don't want to wait, and nor do I , as I am with O2, if it becomes available on Vodafone on 24th as is suggested, just switch carriers.
