it is unlikely that the 16gb will not be seen in the uk at a subsidized price though one of the various commnuications networks phones4u state that the omnia comes in 8 and 16 gb varieties futhermore a recent press release
confirms its european release and emphises the two distinct models. with the iphone comming in 8 and 16 gb the omnia will need to compete with its mutimedia capacity i once again state that it is unlikely the uk will not see a 16 gb model. estimation of an end of august release.
telecommunications companys and mobile telephone vendors will make more money from the lower capacity model as it is cheeper for them to buy and its selling price is lower so more people will buy, thus their profit margin is higher the 16 gb model will only be sold once there is a need for companys to market it against competitors.

I do not understand. I live in the states, i have a k850i with AT&T and 3G works just fine.
Just gleaned the following from www.tracyandmatt.co.uk:
"Today I heard some news though, that comes as something of a disappointment. Apparently Samsung are not going to release the 16GB version of the Omnia in the UK, only the 8GB version.
We now have official pricing for the 8GB unit. It will be £399 + VAT, with first stock arriving 18th August."
So there you have it if you're waiting for the Omnia in the UK - can't believe they're not releasing the 16GB version. Let's hope they're not going to do the favourite trick of record companies and six months down the line release it with extra tracks i.e. extra memory. Wouldn't put it past them......

Slovenian, 17 Jul 2008Visualy i find the phone great, but i'd like to know whats the difference betwen omnia and sam... moreIMO Samsung Omnia is better.
Samsung Instinct has less memory, has no Wifi and camera is only 2 megapixel. It also has no windows means limited 3rd party applications. It also has very less internal memory.
The thing where Instinct is better is in playing TV.
From the looks, IMO omnia is better
Samsung will not yet say when this phone will be available in The Netherlands. They are waiting for a big market campaign. When this is ready the phone will be lanced, so Samsung told me. But they expect it will not take a long time any more.
Visualy i find the phone great, but i'd like to know whats the difference betwen omnia and samsung instinct? Which one is better.. the touch and things? If some1 knows plz reply.
Samsung D980/D988 Duos :
- Triband GSM & EDGE
- Dual SIM GSM card slot with dual on standby mode
- 2.6" TFT 262k colour QVGA with full touchscreen
- TouchWIZ User Interface
- 5 Megapixel Autofocus camera with Flash
- MicroSD card slot, Bluetooth 2.0 & USB
- Design are similar with Samsung P520 Armani
Thanks for the post, very helpful in re-inforcing my belief that I'd made the right choice.
Well we are three brothers and we all own Omnia, Diamond and Iphone3g and what we came across is that Omnia by far is the best in the three. Question is how and why,,,,,well if you hold these three sets the feel of the real thing comes when u hold omnia, iphone3g is the next to omnia but diamond body and hand feel is really pathetic as like holding a plastic toy....:)the next thing is that the UI response is by far the best in omnia 1.2 seconds par finger touch where as iphone3g is 2.7 seconds and diamond 3.2 seconds.....The lcd color readability is almost identical b/w iphone and omnia poor color combination in diamond.....Camera quality and editing tools are the best in omnia iphone is a let down in that dept diamond saves his face with camera quality....user friendliness is identical in the three phones...hence after using all the phones for a week or so i belive omnia is by far the best phone available in the market now.....it will dethrone for sure the market champ n958gb and upcoming champ n96....reason UI touch flow with windows platform is the best combination i have came across......WIFI is very responsive and multimedia functionalities are of good level.....out of three bros i own iphone3g...:( but i will swap it very soon for OMNIA for sure....I hope this will help all of your curiosities......Take care Everyone...cheers
