Samsung Omnia - Hardware Hands-On
Samsung Omnia: HERE. Sure, sure, we've mocked the 'me-too' nature of the form factor, the somewhat strange 240x400 screen resolution, and the fact that we don't actually know when it's going to hit AT&T (we're still holding out hope for September). Here's what we haven't put enough emphasis on: the sucker is armed to the teeth with features:
- 3G, WiFi, FM Radio, GPS
- 5 Megapixel camera with Flash
- 16gig of onboard storage
- Speedy 624 MHz processor
- Respectable 1440 mAH battery
- DIVX video supprt
- Yes, that higher screen resolution
- Opera 9.5 on-board
- Surprising good software enhancements
We'll get to those 'surprisingly good software enhancements' in our next piece. For now, just know that our mantra of “don't throw features at a phone and assume it will be good” still holds and it looks like the Omnia has a decent chance of passing that test.
So check out the video above, check out the photo gallery after the break for more images and head-to-head comparisons with other Windows Mobile devices, and check back again very soon for a more in-depth look at the Omnia.
