XM radio?

I'm SERIOUSLY considering this phone to replace my Motorola Q.
Can you browse to www.xmradio.com and listen to your xm radio account there?
Like on a regular pc browser?
Don't see why not. You'll have to have a browser running which could run the battery down.

Windows Outlook Mobile on Onmia?

Conflicting info: Windows Mobile web site says Omnia has Outlook. Samsung, Verizon & CNET don't mention Outlook as part of the software. What's the scoop?
Outlook Mobile is a core feature of Windows Mobile; all Windows Mobile devices have it.

omnia vs storm vs dare

I work at vzw and I have to admit that the storm has not impressed me too much. There is an extreme wait for the pone to turn itself on after hitting the power button. Also, the lag when pressing icons or opening files is noticeable, especially vs some of the other devices. The consensus from most business customers is that it is great for email and pictures, but there is a large adjustment if you are coming from a curve/pearl etc.
I currently use the dare, and just ordered the omnia. The dare is great for the screen, excellent response times and surprisingly long battery life.Reception is top notch as well.
From my time with the demo omnia, the screen works really well ( severe improvement from the glyde) and the camera is th...
I wish the stores in my Area would get a demo. I have to wait till Monday to get the chance to try it out. I'm liking everything I have read so far. So are you saying I won't be able to use the sync feature with out the 44.99 dollar plan? I have to st...

Samsung Omnia recomendation

Looking for a new phone (STORM vs Dare vs Omnia)

Does this phone have?
Phone clarity and Reception (better than storm)
Speaker Phone (Loud and Clear)
Strong vibration feature.
Descent Media and Video Player
2 day battery life

The BBStorm has a weak vibrate, cannot feel vibration in pocket
Is a data plan required? Not interest in texting or internet access
Do you have any recommendations? (Verizon Customer)
I spoke with a Verizon rep on line and because it"s a PDA he says you will need a data plan. I'm going to check it out tomorrow and see it's in the stores. According to him it will be. I bought the Dare and love it. My wife has the Voyager and is't re...
i have the dare, played with the storm, and really want the omnia. there are things to consider with each.

1. price. up front they are all close, but the dare is only 15/month for web, not 30.

2. use. it depends what your gonna use it for. for a...
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, b...
If you're not interested in text or internet access why in the world would you be buying a phone such as these?

Screen Quesiton


How is the screen on the Omnia? I've heard people raving about the Touch Pro and how vibrant the screen is. I know that the screens are not the same, but would you consider the Omnia's screen poor in comparison to other phones?

I wouldn't call it "poor", but the resolution isn't crazy high like the Touch Pro, and it is a bit less than the iPhone and Storm.

The advantage of a lower-resolution display is speed. The Omnia is possibly the most responsive Windows Mobile device...

i found my new phone :)

i was waiting for the storm, and the touch pro, but i think the omnia just rained on both of their respective parades
I like the looks of this as well. The only two glaring downsides (in my opinion of course) is the lask of any type of physical keyboard, and the stylus being a pen-type object that does not store in/on the device.
