i totally agrees that a phone's no.1 priority shld be that it's not laggy. but looks like mere processing power & ram alone cant guarantee that. i was going to get diamond (with pretty good processor & ram) till i saw users complaining about the laggy UI online. i'd still prefer to get diamond (due to certain features & design) if HTC can fix that laggy UI. i hope that this phone doesnt lag. btw, the press release in singapore states that this is coming out on 17 june and the 16gb version is selling at the same price (S$1098) without contract as diamond.
Glad to see a faster processor. The MSM 7200-400 MHz in my TyTN II is slooowwww at launching and running multiple applications on Win Mobile Pro 6.1
marius, 11 Jun 2008the displaty sucks..only 65k colors :|but the human eey cant judge the difference between 65k and 256k soo not a big difference
Everything is absolutely perfect on this, the best phone ever!!!
Oh wait.... It has NO XENON FLASH! That makes it a USELESS PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!
i thought its the best Announced phone to day and a big deal for touch diamond.
This happens to be the best phone in the world after beating the N96.
Any idea how much will this phone cost? Price is obviously unknown... but based on the specs how much would you guess it to be? Anyone? Cuz the HTC touch diamond pro ended up being ~700 dollars... really disappointed.
Ksiezniczka Ranowalo, 11 Jun 2008It looks that this Samsung i900 Omnia is a further development version of concept tested alrea... moreThe biggest flaw in your theory is that the i900 is running Windows Mobile operating system, and the viewty is just a Flash based operating system. They may have similar features, but then most phones do, but different operating systems make them totally different phones. The i900 is a 'Smart Phone', the viewty isn't.
As a guy that loves Nokia i say this in the sincerest manner...THIS PHONE IS FREAKIN AWESOME...for a samsung
It looks that this Samsung i900 Omnia is a further development version of concept tested already on LG KU990 Viewty. Samsung and LG are essentially two brands of one Korean corporation and, generally, Samsung is positioned slightly above LG when sophistication is concerned. So it is quite common for Samsung to test new concepts commercially and technically on the market under the LG brand. After correction of minor problems found during market testing of LG model the "perfect" Samsung version goes to the market. Please compare these phones, find similarities.
Is all good and all. But does the Samsung i900 use Sirf Star III gps chipset? and does it play flash videos?
Here is a live video of i900...
This phone appears to have everything thing except voice dialing. Why. Does samsung not like incorparating this into their phones. Voice dialing from your bluetooth headset is a big safety feature while driving. Otherwise this phone is amazing and it's going to kick steve jobs ass!
