Summary: While there are some design quirks, and we're still waiting for a U.S. release, the Samsung Omnia promises to be a solid alternative to the Apple iPhone.
Pros: The Samsung Omnia features a nice touch screen and customizable interface that makes the Windows Mobile smartphone easier to use. It also has a 5-megapixel camera and a boatload of other multimedia features.
Cons: You can't add additional widgets to the TouchWiz interface, and there are some nagging design quirks. The unlocked version does not offer U.S. 3G support, and it's expensive.
Summary: The Omnia blurs the line between phone and a pocket Internet device. While its touchscreen isn't as accurate as the iPhone, and neither is the keyboard, the device looks just as sharp, and its 5-MP camera is far superior. It also offers twice the storage of the HTC Diamond for just $50 more. The Omnia doesn't currently support 3G networks in the U.S., so we suggest waiting until it's picked up by a domestic carrier, when you're likely to see a dramatic price drop.
Excerpt: The Samsung Omnia i900 and the HTC Touch Diamond are the two hot iPhone -inspired Windows Mobile Professional slate touch screen phones for the summer of 2008. While both pervasively re-skin the less than sexy Windows Mobile OS to make it more fun, attractive and finger-friendly, their approaches couldn't be more different.
Summary: The Omnia has been placed into the market by Samsung in a correct way. The Millionaire Pack added just that little more to the Samsung Omnia i900. And it is quite a complete handset. The built-in GPS antenna is able to make you reach your destination wherever you want to go, providing the navigation software is available.
Is this latest touch-screen smartphone a real iPhone killer?

Summary: The Omnia is Samsung’s attempt at pushing Windows Mobile as far into the background as possible, but it’s certainly not perfect. With more tweaking to the TouchWIZ interface and a bit more speed, this could potentially knock the iPhone off its perch. As it stands though, it's an admirable handset without being outstanding.
