This phone was released in Malaysia this month and I had th chance to work with it today in Kuala Lumpur. It is very similar to Samsung Tocco but it is larger and almost and large as iphone. Amazing machine, it has everything you need, 5MP LED Flah camera, Video Recorder and Editor, SMS, MMS, 3.5G, 16GB Memory, Video Conferencing with two cameras, only thing I did not like was the black plain plastic cover at the back. Tocco has Stainless Steel back and also a leather cover. This phone s a Windows based Notebook shrunk into a small Mobile phopne. I recommend this system to all people who look for an iphone killer. I still believe that iphone has fr better display ad scrteen graphics but this phone is amazing.

tossero, 08 Aug 2008 Thank you Gaby! Did u actually buyed from them?yes, monday it will arrive to me, because they had to order it, they don't have it on stock :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970someone i know's selling it but im still undecided if i wanna get one. its a great phone but i have an iphone already and if the flash player is missing, then what's the use of browsing? he's selling it for 32k only. quite cheap for a great phone.
I gave my brother my i780 as a gift, a very expensive gift I must say. So I bought the i900 to replace it.
My very first impression of the i900 is that I, indeed, miss my i780. Even now, after 1 week of usage, I still miss my i780. There are more controls and buttons from the i780.
There's another disadvantage that I've found after 1-2 days of owning the i900 is the low RAM. Though the i900 comes with an internal storage (8gb or 16gb), some older programs/system files/registry files take RAM spaces.
Another disadvantage of the internal storage (8gb or 16gb) is that you cannot transfer files with Asian language. You'll have to use the external storage to store those files.
I've found out that putting an 8gb external SD card makes the storage card viewable in ActiveSync.
Though the PDA phone is about as thick as the i780, it's a bit in the heavy side.
There are some advantages in the i900 over the i780. You get the 6.1 version upgrade, Opera 9.5 browser, a 5.0 Megapixel Camera with LED flash, an FM Radio, auto rotate sensor, and some better tweaked software. I guess those are the upgrades that the i780 doesn't have.
With the i900, I can re-installed back some games that I couldn't put in the square screen from the i780. But then the widescreen format of the PDA screws up the display of the TomTom6 version software that I got.
With the Opera 9.5, browsing the internet is much better than the previous 8.5 version. I can access Yahoo site normally, and my Yahoo account too. However, I still cannot access online banking accounts.
The main thing that makes me want to change the phone is the inability to operate the TomTom software with a normal viewing. So either I gotta change the phone, or TomTom gonna need to upgrade the software.
to shou ji.....ya this update might have fixed a few bugs but now there is a problem with haptic feedback!!! no response even on high!!! just another of the many problems with a win mobile phone! seems like everyday i have a new one to be stressed out about!!!!

i900 omnia videorecord in 3gp is bad. If videorecord is in mp4 then it is better. Too bad.

ayava, 08 Aug 2008Hopefully the release delay in Holland will result in bug eliminations.Dear Ayava,
I'm not aware of any delay in The Netherlands. As far as I know it will come available in week 43, 18 August.
This phones seem like it is the complete phone but if it has the tv out capabilities then why doesnt it come with the tv out plug? Where would you even get one from if you were to buy this phone? Thanks for the help.
Hopefully the release delay in Holland will result in bug eliminations.
