A day prior to CommunicAsia 08, Samsung held its Omnia press launch at Theater works situated at Mohd Sultan. The Omnia is a definitive competitor to the Apple iPhone 3G but packs a heavier punch than its competitor, with features like HSDPA 7.2mbps, a 5MP AF camera with smile detection and multi-video codec support such as DivX, XviD, H.264 & WMV. Other significant features includes an intuitive touch UI that allows users to drag and drop items just like how widgets work on our computer desktops,, FM Radio, A-GPS functionality and a micro-SDHC expansion up to 16GB.

The Omnia will be released in the Singapore market right after CommunicAsia, and prices has yet to be finalized pending carrier-subsidy negotiations. Europe will be getting the Omnia next in July, and the rest of the world thereafter in August.

The guys in our labs seems pretty excited about this phone, mainly because of the many features available on the phone. Unlike the HTC Diamond that was rolled out a couple of weeks ago, the Omnia allows one to add a storage expansion of up to 16GB into the phone, bringing the total up to a maximum of 32GB. Coupled with its multi-codec support, you can be sure that movies on the go is no longer something that will set you fuming because of the lack of codecs.
