Can you hook up external usb hardrive to it, and will it be able to power the external usb hardrive?
Also does it have two cameras? one for video conference and one for taking pictures? if not this phone is waste of money.
i900 Unique Woes:
1. can't read in daylight (full), too bright at night (zero setting)
2. hangs & lock up easily, when loaded with apps
3. screen sensitivity drops and shut down easily, when apps-loaded
4. Samsung UtouchWiz UI not useful/practical.
5. photo is good, but video is bad
6. poor GPS fix (5-10 mins), even with A-GPS
7. proprietary tilt-sensor API, does not work with many 3rd-party sensor apps
8. WM6.1 & Samsung built-in ROM programs, conflicts with many apps, rendering useless.
9. DivX play still do not play many formats or no audio, use Coreplayer.
10. TV-out cannot view fullscreen on TV
i900 Unique Pros:
1. 16GB USB
2. Camera UI, and stills
3. 1-touch Torchlight
4. Good FM Radio recording
gave up Omnia after 3 weeks, for issues 1-3, after exploring all remedies. Cannot function as a stable phone, using as an apps-rich device.
For Simple Users, great phone!
For Heavy Phoners/SMSers, get HTC Pro/Xperia
For Apps-Explorers, go for HTC
For Movie-makers, still N95
For Flaunters, it's iPhone
Dutch Vodafone website is announcing the Omnia for week 34..
However, their telephone-guy told me it should be the 6th of august (which is, obviously, not week 34, but next week already:D)! Can anyone tell me the 'real' date?
Samsung should have organizer as a standart, don't know about the quality though.
Can someone tell me if this phone has/can be updated with anti-virus? does it need one at all???
Do you also know if the tocco model has/needs one???
There is no chinese input for sumsung omnia phone, May I know where I can install chinese software for omnia phone.
Thanks for your help

To take advantage of the built-in GPS and navigational systems on Samsung's upcoming new mobiles, GyPSii will offer their mobility digital lifestyle applications as part of a new world wide non-exclusive agreement with the handset manufacture.
In accordance to the new agreement, Samsung will include GyPSii's leading mobility digital lifestyle app with the Samsung i900 Omnia and Samsung SGH-i780. This is Samsung's take on location based services and social networking for their mobile phones.

I also have checked the Internet and know now that there are special anti virus prg's for mobile devices.
As soon as I know more, I will let you know.
As we know, Microsoft Windows Mobile is similar OS as we use to our PC, its attractive to virus whenever we open our email or surfing the web. My question guys, does this phone actually has any kind of patches or build in AV to protect our phone for malicious prog. or do we need to install a AV to this phone? Any suggestion which AV would be the best to buy that won't slow down and eat a lot of memory. NEED HELP GUYS... =)
