Samsung Omnia Review
2 September 2008
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.
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.

Summary: Ask if this has been a good year for tech enthusiasts, and the general answer might have been a firm yes. As with each year, there have been some hits and misses over the past few months, but mostly hits, in our humble opinion.
Summary: The Omnia is a beautifully constructed phone that is robust yet light, and thanks to its slimness feels comfortable in the hand. The homescreen features Samsung's Touchwiz technology, which enables users to drag and drop applications from a gallery on the display.
Pros: A fine-looking phone with a truly staggering feature set.
Cons: Our touch-screen calibration caused problems and affected the overall user experience.
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.
