Replying to:  Samsung Omnia recomendation by Phalanderp   Nov 25, 2008, 2:18 PM

When buying a smartphone like the Omnia or blackberry like the Storm, you are paying a premium to have what could be considered a sub-netbook computer.

Most people buying these products are looking to have access to a richer calendar application, be able to examine Microsoft office documents, send and receive emails, and occasionally do a quick internet based task.

Plus features include the camera/video recording capabilities (which don't live up to the numbers - one video I saw made with the omnia had an issue with voice being out of sync with the video and the the camera is poor to adequate for its high rating) or getting a youtube app to watch the videos on (though Touchflo 3d has a better youtube player than the omnia).

Considering that Verizon is adopting a cable provider mindset where they keep the package price lower by requiring all users to get a data plan, you may want to avoid the omnia or blackberry.

Of course, if you want to have access to a wider set of software to add to your phone and use it like a mini-computer, then you'll have to factor that $30/month for 1-2 years into the cost of your phone.

However, there is nothing like being able to do a quick search for the lowest gas prices, a good restaurant, or movie showings from your phone. Smile
