Sizing up the new Omnia line

One of the things missing from the announcement of Samsung's new Omnia line was actual specs. So, we're taking care of that after the break.

  • I think I read that like the first Omnia, the Omnia II does not have an integrated stylus. Can anyone confirm this?
  • I can confirm that the first omnia came with what I can best describe as a stylus that looked like an eyeliner container. It did not insert into the device but instead could be attached to the device with a string. The LG Incite does the same thing. I think there may have been one other Windows Mobile phone like this.
  • GSM Arena have a first-look review of the Omnia II I8000 here:
    http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i8000_omnia_2-review-362.php They confirm that there is no stylus silo, just like the original Omnia.
  • Arent the Omnia II and Pro dual band 3G not tri-band? The gsmarena preview only lists 900 and 2100 bands.
  • Dualband. If you live in the USA and are on T-mobile or AT&T then you won't be able to get a version of this with 3G. You'd have to either order the european version (which will only have up to 2G here) or switch to Verizon (which I would not suggest as you loose the liberty of moving your phone number around with a SIM card).
  • You dont lose (not loose) your liberty of moving your phone number. Your number can still be ported, just not as easy becasue you now HAVE to deal with the carrier. What you lose is the ease of transfer of your data without carrier interference.
