  • Google TALK app for i8910

    Hi all: I've had my i8910 since August. Got it from a private seller on eBay, who sold it as an unwanted upgrade and I paid £310 - not a bad price. However, it was locked to Orange and I unbranded, then unlocked it, so I could use it with my existing Vodafone SIM. Overall, I'm VERY happy with it. It's my second phone since moving to the UK in 2006. My first (which I still have) was a Nokia 6280). Yes, the sound quality on Nokia IS better, even with the official firmware update from Samsung. Here is my current question. Can anyone point me to an application which DEFINITELY allows me to install Google Talk on the Omnia i8910 HD? Cheers! Michael

  • Updating the Symbian operating system for Omnia HD

    I am very intersted in the Samsung Omnia HD, but am concerned at hearing that updates for the Symbian operating system might be difficult to come by, whereas for a Nokia device they would be readily available. IS this a real / current issue?

    Answered by UKnewbie 2009-12-01:

    Hi Asymilligan: This reply may be well after you've found your answer to this, but, as I've just joined here today, that's the best I can do :-) I updated the firmware on my i8910 through Samsung's site, so it was an official update, not one of the various leaked ones. Not to say that some of the other countries' updates aren't useful, but it tends to be the case, as far I can see, that one REALLY must know what one is doing then. So, I don't see it as an issue. Cheers!
