Another annoying fact is that the N96 was announced after the I900 and Vodafone have that shoe horn on there site coming soon info but not the omnia, WTF vodafone get it together.
This is getting silly now, i have read that its now up to 2 months to get the omnia in uk, when we were told it would be mid august. i have to say im getting pretty hacked off with this, if they dont get it out soon i/most people will have given up and bought a phone thats just not as good, shame the makers/networks dont seem to give a toss what there customers want anymore, noone used to have to waste time like this getting a new phone before.
can samsung advise wheather i900 has the facility of BIZ CARD READER and if the facility is there how I can get that facility using my sasung i900 omnia
Dave, 04 Aug 2008To be honest, my choice was between the E71 & Omnia and I chose the E71 (bought it friday - ar... moreMy Problem is sometimes need a phone that I quicky access data or my phone contacts and make dialing for me. It sees like for me phones like Omnia, HTC, or IPHON can not do that for me. IPHONE i owen one but hardly use do to the sound not good while talking as Nokia is during phone calls. So, most times I am using my IPOD Touch to the the things I need instead. I had many PDA phones such as O2, HTC towice including diamond. Diamond was kind of small for my fingure tip and fast response even though was sexy looking phone and it was easy to hold in hand and almost access everything. sharp screen but some how did not made me happy what i need as phone and PDA. I been waiting for E66 long time about last 10 months which I knew must of be great phone since I owen E51 and I am very happy with. But looking for change to have slider.
Now E66 and E71 menue has kind change and even make it more user friendly. As I like to owen PDA phone and been looking at Omnia. I can not keep two PDA phone Diamond and Omnia. So, I had to make a choice and decided to go with Omnia. bigger screen, faster respond on screen touch, longer battery life, standard audio jack, 16GB, and so on. So, if you looking for more of phone and business type phone then E71 is better choice and you can also down laod a program on internet to Eddit your Microsoft docoments too as PDA phone do. But I like to Owen both so I do have the E66, Omnia, IPHONE, G900 Sony. if you need one then keep the E71 or need two phoen then I go with E71 and Omnia.

i've got w810. then The SE P1i(@ present). This phone looks good. if u have budget for this one, then grab it!!! but u have to take risks for slider phones as if they r or easily broken just like the N7650. E71 screen so small but it's GPRS is fast.

Jeff, 03 Aug 2008I a msure that E71 is great phoen. I have the E66 which kind of similair to E71. I love it and... moreTo be honest, my choice was between the E71 & Omnia and I chose the E71 (bought it friday - arriving tomorrow hopefully).
I've had the HTC TyTN II (Kaiser), Samsung I620, I640 and the I780.
I just want ONE phone now that will do EVERYTHING I want like:
1. Texting (qwerty keyboard or at least a very good touch based one)
2. Email (exchange - i need this big time)
5. Internet/HSDPA/Internet sharing
6. Robust/solid not made from cheap materials that will break/crack easily
8. State of the art
9. Looks good
As mentioned, prior to this I've always had 2 phones, PDA & win smartphone, now I just want ONE that will do everything, do you think I made the right choice? (E71)?
I still cant help but like everything the Omnia has to offer (and its so cool), but I do need a phone too.
What do you think?
If you had to choose between E71 and Omnia?
Dave, 03 Aug 2008What is the verdict from the people who have this phone? Can I have a rating out of 10 now... moreI a msure that E71 is great phoen. I have the E66 which kind of similair to E71. I love it and it is a great phone. I had HTC Diamond as I said but no happy with the phoen design. So, today I bought the Samsung Omnia and it is a great PDA phone. You can not compair the E71 with Omnia. E71 is great Busienss phone and Omnia is a great PDA phone. They both great in their owen Catagory. If I have to choose between my E66 and Omnia. It would be E66. You should look at the Sony G900 too. It is not a bad phone.
What is the verdict from the people who have this phone?
Can I have a rating out of 10 now you have it and wether you would recommend buying it over any other phone in the market of its calibre.
Also, how good is it for texting?
I bought a Nokia E71 but thinking of selling this and buying the Omnia.

It may only have a 2.8 screen, but it is ... moreI do not know who you are but you do not know nothing or just maybe HTC lover talk like that. I owened HTC Cruiser which was not bad then I hear all the good things about HTC Diamond and I buy it before I know Samsung Phoen Coming. Yes, The HTC Diamond actulay not problem looks even more beautiful than Samsung but is matter preference in look, size and what you need. I liked bigger screen, I preferd the more that 4GB and Samsung give me today 16GB. After today change my Diamond to Samsung Omnia fidn out the touch screen is mroe responsive than HTC. If you do not know HTC Diamond get hot after 5 minutes talking or using then you have never touch or seen HTC diamond by hand. It does not mean HTC diamond is bad phoen. IT is jsut matter preference.
Jeff, 03 Aug 2008I owen the HTC Diamond now for over 2 months. It is a nice small palstice phoen which get hot ... moreYou don't own a Touch Diamond, so please don't lie. It may only have a 2.8 screen, but it is very crisp, that you can even read the fine prints because its resolution is high and it comes with a full VGA screen. I you like the Omnia, then buy it, but don't make up stories to pull down other brands to promote your favorite phone.
