Whilst HTC are willing to sit back and let the community add value to it's products, Samsung take a different approach and actually help developers add value to it's products. The standard WM SDK will allow you to mess about with GPS, Bluetooth etc., things like LED's and sensors are a different kettle of fish however. As many developers will know, the ability to use the accelerometer in HTC devices only came when the community came to rescue after HTC flat-out said "no" to a request for a sensor SDK. Samsung on the other hand have just released version 1.2 of theirs, ready for use with upcoming devices such as the Omnia II! Kudos, Samsung :)

in addition to support for newer devices the SDK also gives developers access to the front facing camera. Up until now being able to do that required a feat of reverse engineering as there is no standard API for accessing front facing cameras on Windows Mobile devices. With the samsung windows SDK one can select the camera to be used and then use the normal DirectShow API to get video from the camera.
