Samsung Omnia Launched in Pakistan

Samsung OMNIA (i900) that is powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and comes with Microsoft Office has been launched in Pakistan through Mobile Zone. Omnia Means “Everything” in Latin, and I feel that Samsung has tried to compile this handset to do everything…! We are not sure about the pricing yet, as the gadget is going to hit stores in a week’s time, but speculations suggest its price would be around Rs. 50,000.

A look at Samsung Omnia’s videos revealed that the device is a 100% touch screen, but still Samsung included an optical mouse for ease of navigation – the optical mouse is similar to what you’d find on laptops.

Samsung Omnia brings together high performance business content, high-end design mixed with a full bag of dynamic multimedia rich experience.

5 MegaPixel Camera, WLAN, 3G, Music Player, Media Player and much more is there that this Samsung made mobile phone offers.

    I will purchase it if it would be around 15K other wise iphone or HTC TYTN II is a better option

  • omz

    15k? r u mad kim? stop being such a cheapo. i think u shud stick to the trend mobile series or maybe some of those chinese rip off phones. i dont think samsung needs ur measly 15k mate. jeezus christ, kim wants to pay 15k for a 3g, wlan enabled, 5MP camera phone.lol

    • Zahid Hussain

      @Handsome, you better buy a stone instead apple 3gb. monia is not a phone its a computer buddy.

  • rafay

    rafay

  • rafy

    hey guys can any one tell me whts the omnia price in pakistan…….?????????thanks

    • Zahid Hussain

      @rafy, Rupees. 67000/-

  • Zahid Hussain

    In pakistan mobilezone is offering it in Rs. 67000/-

    • Abbas

      @Zahid Hussain, Man that’t too exp, I can get you one for around £50000 (8GB) brand new but wont have mobile zobe warranty, i imagine that you get 12 months manufacturer warranty with any make. But believe me its much better than Nokia where you have battery life for less than a day :)
      I am using my self this fone and its great….

      • Zahid Hussain

        @Abbas, yah we have microsoft outlook and microsoft office ,remote desktop connections , we can build and connect sql server based applications and connect to them from our phone. we have google maps for gps access. its not a phone. its a micro computer.

        • Abbas

          @Zahid Hussain, Yeah, that’s right. I have got a scanning application installed on mine where using SQL DB which works more than perfect. Unlike iPhone it has copy/paste, msg forwarding and video editing software.

          I have got two two Omnia, only one month used but in perfect condition, any idea how much I should sell it for if I go to a shop ?

          • Zahid Hussain

            @Abbas, shope keeper will not pay you much. try to sell to some friend or any other reference. Pak Rupees 50K is what you can get at most.

            • Abbas

              @Zahid Hussain, no worries, lets hope for the best :) Any idea what’s price of Samsung Tocco and N96 ?

  • Shabbir Hussain

    i think this cell brand is very well as its features shows. but its price is much higher that a normal living person cannot afford it

  • Sami Ahmed Khan

    Hi everyone, Omnia’s price are not yet decided but can be speculated around 50,000 rupees. N it is not only a phone but a palmtop as well. iPhone doesn’t provide options Omnia has. Let other samsung competators launch the one like Omnia than prices will go down automatically:)

  • Nadeem Ahmed

    whats the price in pakistan ?
    its 200$ in abroad

  • Rafay

    Anyone have information about sony ericsson Xperia?

    Rafay

    • kami

      thnkx

      • Rafay

        @kami, Can you tell me in what shop it is available?

  • hira

    y not LG parada :P

    • kami

      @hira,
      i hve got this omnia,it works like an iphone,almost 5 times better than LG PRADA.Recommended to all users.
      Hope it works.
      cheers

      • Rafay

        @kami, Have got the omnia as well. Touch interface not as good as apple iphone. Screen resolution is also not that good. Camera is fine-results are good after transferring the pics to the computer. They forgot to make space for the stylus. It looks ridiculous hanging it with a piece of string! As far as the keyboard is concerned, typing is bit cumbersome compared to the iphone. One can use the inbuilt mouse, but that slows you down.
        Battery life is not bad. Display visibility poor in daylight.
