Screenshots: Samsung Omnia II (i8000)

July 13, 2009

Samsung Logo

I had the chance last week to play with Samsung latest smartphone; Samsung Omnia 2 aka i8000. I must admit the new Samsung Touch Wiz Interface is just AWESOME! The scroll is smooth, functional, predictable and surprisingly nice to look at. There were lots of additional softwares added by Samsung too.

Nothing like the previous Samsung Omnia. I was also told it will be priced somewhere around RM2,599 (head on with HTC Touch Diamond 2).

Stay tuned for the followup review on the actual units of more screen shots and pictures!

News: Windows Mobile 6.5 to have SMS Sync

July 6, 2009

Windows Mobile Logo

Windows Exchange Server 2010 will bring a lot of new features to Windows Mobile for those that use the service. Some of the reported new features are

  • conversation for email
  • message preview
  • device-end rule creation (currently only server side)
  • SMS sync!

Imagine all your SMS intact when you switch devices. Something which I will absolutely love. Ofcourse, the only problem is that, I don’t run Windows Exchange Server 😦 Perhaps Google can offer something similar for free?

Below is a screen shot of the SMS sync option on an Xperia running Windows Mobile 6.5

News: HTC pledges allegiance to Windows Mobile

June 13, 2009


Despite being the world’s first mobile phone maker to launch an Android-based handset, HTC still favours Microsoft’s Windows Mobile.

Frédéric Tassy, Grand Fromage of HTC France and Benelux, was recently asked whether he thought 2009 will be Android’s year. And although he thinks that, yes, this will be the year Android really takes off, the executive nonetheless stressed HTC’s close ties with Windows Mobile.

“We will always have more flagship products on Windows Mobile,” Tassy told French-language website Mobinaute. “Our best selling smartphone in Europe is also the HTC Touch HD [which uses] Windows Mobile.”

He also claimed many other handset makers will announce Android handsets – but fail to deliver their offerings on time.

“I think there will be a lot of bluffing, with products that are likely to be delayed,” he alleged.

Tassy claimed it was “hard to say” how many Android smartphones HTC will have launched by the end of this year. However, pictures were recently leaked online of a device widely thought to be the firm’s third Android-based device. ®
