Samsung OMNIA first impressions show that Windows Mobile can beat the iPhone

I wrote about my Samsung OMNIA buying experiences in Singapore and wanted to post a first impressions article as I continue to work on a full review of the device. I purchased the 16GB white colored device and think it may be my new preferred Windows Mobile device. Like the HTC Touch Diamond, the Samsung Omnia is quite a departure from a standard Windows Mobile device and with the large 3.2 inch display it looks a lot like a direct iPhone competitor, but with far fewer limitations. The only thing lacking so far is 3G support for the US, but it does have a quad-band GSM radio and works with EDGE (2.5G) here in the US. I found two specific capabilities over the last couple of days that have me quite excited about the device and my T-Mobile SIM has now moved from my BlackBerry Curve to the Samsung OMNIA (SGH-i900) for the indefinite future.

MobileTechRoundup show #145, Traveling in Singapore, Nokia announcements, WiMAX features

It turns out that the air conditioning unit in my hotel in Singapore was cranking and I didn't realize it as we recorded MobileTechRoundup show #145 a couple of days ago so I am sorry for the background hum that still remains a bit in the audio file. We did talk about a few new devices that were announced, including the N79 and N85. Kevin ordered a MSI Wind that should be coming soon and I also just ordered a Kindle at a great price. James, Kevin, and I talked a bit about WiMAX and our hopes that it launches soon since it will supposedly allow multiple devices on the same account. Android is getting an application market store, similar to the Apple iPhone.

MobileTechRoundup show #144, Palm thoughts, Acer Aspire One is gone

James, Kevin, and I had a chance to get back together over Skype and record MobileTechRoundup show #144 and talked a bit about the devices I planned to take to my work trip to Singapore. Kevin tells why he took back the Acer Aspire One and why he may end up getting another in a different flavor. We talked for quite a bit about the Treo Pro and I have to say after further usage that I may have some different thoughts when my full review goes live. We all three chimed in on thoughts of Palm and what the future may hold. Kevin then shared a freeware of the show for your iPhone that you need to grab before it becomes a commercial application.
