Samsung i-Killer the i900 Omnia
Samsung’s i-Killer, the i900, has been unveiled and christened the Samsung i900 Omnia. The i900 is a Windows Mobile handset (6.1 Professional)with a large 3.2-inch QVGA display sporting a 240 x 400 pixel resolution. Like Sony Ericsson’s Xperia and their own i780, this handset also comes equipped with a small optical mouse. It is 12.5mm thick and is quite easily going to look and feel stylish, especially with its sliver brushed metal back.
Some of the other features that are incorporated into the Omnia are a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera that uses face and smile detection technology to optimize pictures. It also has a Geotagging feature that works in tandem with the inbuilt GPS unit that the i900 comes integrated with.
The QuadBand i900 also supports GPRS/EDGE, 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps speeds, Bluetooth with an A2DP profile and Wi-Fi as well. Samsung has also incorporated their TouchWiz interface into this handset. It may not be quite like HTC’s new TouchFlo 3D interface but I’m sure it’ll have something worthwhile to offer users. The i900, like the iPhone and so many other new handsets being launched, also has an accelerometer that will automatically rotate the display when held in landscape. It also comes with an FM radio aside from the media player.
The handset will also come in 8GB and 16 GB capacities and oddly enough Samsung has also included a microSD card slot for more storage. That seems like a bit of overkill, but why not! The handset will be out sometime this month but there’s no official pricing attached to it …
