Okay this shows the pics floating around in the last few days are the real deal... Unfortunately I don't understand if that "cube" on Omnia II works as a trackpad like our Omnias, because if it doesn't I will be very sad....

Anyway really nice upgrade to Samsungs WinMo phones , looking forward to HTC answer to this.

in my shopping list :D

too bad I guess that cube-button border will not act as a dpad ;)

Are we sure about that ? I was wondering the same thing, and I'm kinda "live in denial" it's not true.

Is there _any_ of the announced new models that allows _some_ form of scrolling -- either mechanical, or optical (like the optical pad on the i900) ?

Sure, the specs look "schweet", but in practice all that "oh, shiny stuff, I want" will rub off rather quickly and I'll just start swearing at the lack of my ability to scroll in the old apps.

Anyone ?

Thanks,

Florian

Noticeable upgrade from our old omnia

1. Screen Size = 3.7" ok that's huge

2. Screen Type = AMOLED visibility under the sun is rest assured

3. Screen Resolution = WVGA no more pixelation

4. Screen Responsiveness = Advanced R (whats that? capacitive-like?)

5. Video Recording = 480p True DVD Quality 480 x720 30fps

6. Video Lights = Dual power LEDs no more video light turn half bright, now double brightness

7. HSUPA = 5.76Mbps well ok hopefully my network support this

8: New 3D UI with cube navi key = TouchWiz 2.0 ok nice to keep and showing off

9: FAster CPU = 800Mhz

10: Connector = 3.5mm and MiniUSB (no more samsung propriety crap)

No 8 Megapixel?

IMO Samsung is really F'ing up with resistive touchscrren crap. if you look at my 910 at the right angle, the screen is sort of rippled in certain areas because you have to repetetively MASH the screen to make it work. And also IMO, from messing around with a G1 for a little bit, I'm so sick of windows mobile. I'm just so tired of little, teeny tiny tabs and buttons for settings. And then if you want something better, you have to sift through tons of diffetrent shells and UI's and.......ugh ...frustrated with winmo to say the least. The OS needs a HUGE improvement.

Omnia II officially announced.

Here's the GSMarena link

http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_s8000_jet_and_samsung_i8000_omnia_ii_unveiled-news-972.php

It'll be infact named "Omnia" as it is windows mobile. But not sure abt the OmniaHD - there are still confusions abt its name in several parts of the world.

SO Keep Updating this thread.

And if possible, the OP might remove the "?" from the thread title!

Ok after looking at all the omnia series, i think Omnia II is the best from the bunch. Lets compare

OmniaHD

Slower processor and running ugly s60 OS, HD video recording capability but in poor audio format (amr - Imagine phone that advance uses old nokia dumbphone audio recording format), not everyone needs 8MP. The outer looks is ugly

OmniaPro

Small screen same like old omnia (bad for GPS), very thick due to sliding keyboad, keyboard hassle when already clamped the phone in the car (no point of triggering onscreen qwerty when u have sliding one). It looks ugly also

OmniaJet

Sorry this is a dumbphone that flaunts "Smarter than Smartphone" with Samsung propriety OS in it I wonder if it can handle multi tasking job like listening to music , while GPS is running, Voice chat on Nimbuzz while driving since it has 800mhz cpu. And Samsung claims that this is the mobile phone that you want. Nah.

OmniaLite

Ok this is for your GF and those who never use Omnia series before. Definitely not for us.

The design its fake because Microsoft imposed to all manufacturers to include a windows key on every windows mobile phone. The design you see there does not include that.

I can tell its made in photoshop or something similar.

Very nice Photoshop skill ?

i dont think sector will get one :D

I won't be either, but it is tempting.....:D

The camera has not been upgraded which is strange, they seem to of upgraded everything else. It looks coolio, the others (except Omnia II) are not worth the money really, imho.

Hopefully, they will be the same to cook for....lets hope for you guys that a kitchen is available soon, it should be very similar to the i900 one.

I might be tempted to buy one, but i want something else........;)

the cam IS upgraded ! it stays at 5mp but that is enough especially with such a small lens..

think about it, [email protected] announced, at worst we will have smooth & crisps VGA video now !

which means the camera part will be even nicer, and there's double flash :D

It's only missing a dpad for me :-/
