I only spent enough time with it to put together the video tour you saw. I intentionally didn't call it a "review", because I haven't had enough time with the Omnia to form a full opinion, and I don't have it now.

I can speak to a couple of points, though:

First, the browser is good. It's the exact same Opera browser as on the Touch Diamond, which I would consider to be the closest any company has come to the iPhone's browser to date. It's not perfect, but it's better than most. I probably prefer it to the Storm's browser, but the Storm's browser is good enough that I'm sure some people would prefer that one.

The Omnia is a great size. Huge screen, but still relatively thin. On paper, the Storm is only slightly thicker, but in person, the difference feels greater. Because the Omnia is also narrower (left to right), it really is more pocket-friendly.
