It supports quad-band GSM/EDGE as well as 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA (7.2Mbps) network connectivity, with WiFi thrown in for good measure. Highlights of the Omnia include a large, 3.2-inch WQVGA (240x400 pixel) touchscreen display with stylus support. The display supports auto-rotation for apps and there is a TV-out function for when 3.2-inch just isn't large enough. The i900 Omnia supports many different music and video formats, including Ogg Vorbis music and DivX and Xvid video. An FM radio is also included in case you forget to load up the i900's 8GB internal storage with your favorite music, and you don't have a microSDHC card lying around. Music can be enjoyed with wired or Bluetooth wireless headsets, thanks to the i900's A2DP stereo Bluetooth capability. The Omnia also sports a high-spec camera, as well. The camera uses a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor with an autofocus lens and has such high end features as face and smile detection, image stabilization, wide dynamic range mode, and an automatic panoramic mode. A built-in GPS module with nav and geotagging capabilities is also on-board.The SGH-i900 Omnia uses Samsung's TouchWiz user interface extensions on top of Windows Mobile. This means that users are free to navigate with taps, sweeps, or drags and drops as well as use the built-in optical mouse controller. Text input is handled by an on-screen virtual QWERTY keyboard.

This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider and it provides quad-band connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz). It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider.

It is great, but not suited for me.
Only issue I have with this phone is that you'll need to find a better 3rd party GPS that works without the internet since I don't have a data plan in my country for the phone, so getting the internet all the time can be expensive. If you have an unlimited data plan then you wont have anything to worry about.
All features on the phone work well. The Samsung keyboard took a little getting used to since it had XT9 but once you figure out how to disable it then you'll be fine since having word completion can be a bit annoying at times.
The Transcriber feature is really good, but there should have been a way to do a test(calibration) so that it can learn to recognise your handwriting since everyone's is different.
The finger mouse feature is nice for one handed use, so that would come in handy for most users who multitask.
I personally think this is a great phone for anyone who, like myself, loves alot of functionality and features.
This is a great phone for the price and has all if not more of the features of the high-end, high priced phones in the $800-900 range.
At the time I bought this I had issues with the 3rd party seller with shipping to an address and the apt number was missing and they refunded me within a few days, I would advise all users to make their purchase directly from Amazon since their service is more superior than some 3rd party buyers.
Another thing to note is that I purchased the 8GB from the 3rd party at $399.99 but after being refunded I decided to go for the 16GB that was being sold by Amazon with better shipping prices (including the Free Supersaver Shipping) for only $402.
I hope you do consider buying this phone since it's a great investment for any of you looking to have fun and functionality together in a phone.
i discover that i had to make some updates to it.. nothing like to worry about ... great product .. i will call my problem a layer 8 .. recommended
