Samsung Omnia Updates Released

Samsung first released its Windows Mobile ROM update for the SGH-i900 Omnia smartphone a couple of months back for Singapore customers, and this time round there are more updates for different countries as well. The download weighs in at a hefty 108MB and will be made available to SGH-i900 users in Italy, France, Malaysia, the Philippines and of course, Singapore. Too bad folks over in North America are still waiting for the Omnia, leaving them a handset and two updates behind.

Re: Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia : The new PDA formalized

One of the main feature of the Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia is the size of its screen that is: 3.2 inches (which is approximately 8.1 cm), instead of the usual 2.8 inches (which is 7.1 cm). The screen resolution is specific to 240 x 400 pixels (WQVGA) instead of the usual 240 x 320 (QVGA). This phone is also noticeable for its digital camera which is 5 megapixels and built-in memory support of 8GB or 16GB (two versions of the i900 will be available), otherwise, it's classic features that it is having for an example - 3G +, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM Radio, etc are more than enough for making this one of the best mobile phone.
