Samsung announced a new touchscreen phone, the Samsung Omnia, with hap tic support and running Windows Mobile 6.1. The Samsung Omnia, also known as the Samsung SGH-i900 is a broadly similar device that competes head-on with the new Apple handset. OMNIA, meaning â€˜everythingâ€™ in Latin and â€˜wishâ€™ in Arabic, goes beyond the current top-of-the-line features available in todayâ€™s mobile phones.
Based on the most up to date Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system, Samsung OMNIA gives users a mobile extension to their PC experience, with access to MS Office documents such as PowerPoint, Excel and Word.
Users can also send and receive email and manage their appointments in Outlook while on the go. The Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system means users can download additional programs as they would on their PC and customize it for their individual needs.
The Samsung Omnia comes with a large 3.2″ 240 x 400 pixel touchscreen display with hap tic feedback. Samsung OMNIA also comes with a five-megapixel CMOS camera with the latest value-added features, which include auto-focus (AF), face and smile detection and auto-panorama shot.
The phone features GPS, FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi. For storing music, the Samsung Omnia comes with 8 gig or 16 gigs internal memory.
Samsungâ€™s patented TouchWiz user interface makes entering data and text simple. With unique widgets, users can customise and personalise the way they use their phone. It also facilitates easy and convenient calling and texting with a dedicated dome key for controlling communications.
the Samsung Omnia’s multimedia player supports MP3, AAC and WMA audio types, also MPEG4, DivX, H.263, H.264 and WMV movies plus many other types of multimedia file.
