Windows Mobile isn't for everyone. Ive used it for more then 4 yrs and for the most part ive been happy except when VZW cripples phones. I actually played with the Omnia 2 for a bit and im impressed and disappointed at the same time. Now if you can get past the ridiculously shiny casing and the sorry exscuse for interface called touch wiz i think you will really like the device. In the end im not going to be able to make a real decision until i can spend more then 30 minutes screwing with it.

I'm surprised it has a stylus! No phone is perfect but I think this one comes pretty close and I’m sure there will be updates and some glitches when it first comes out. I’ll be getting it and I’m sure I’ll enjoy using it too! :)

@MikeG77....I completely agree with you concerning the interface. I am not a fan of TW2.0...when I get the phone, I'll be installing SPB Mobile Shell 3.5. From I've heard VZW is not going to cripple the new line of smart phones. They've got some flack about that. Now, this is just what I heard, whether or not it's true or not will be decided when the phone comes out. When looking at the launch package on Engadget.com, part of the software package is Bing mobile, so they would at least allow that app to use the GPS chip, not just VZ Nav. It's a wait and see game.

Chief, They are no longer crippling the phones, but they are installing their crappy excuses of SW that will be embedded on the stock ROM. Visual Voicemail, VZAppZone, all that garbage. They are horrible programs and cause a lot of problems. I had a friend who had an OmniaI i910 and it was horrible, freezing, laggy, etc. Then he flashed a custom ROM that removed all of the VZW junk and the phone was perfect, no problems at all after the custom install. If VZW would leave taht garbage out of the ROM and make them available .CAB file downloads there would be waaaay less problems because you could just uninstall/reinstall. So I would suggest getting this phone, then flashing it to a customer ROM immediately.

Chief, I purchased a Touch Pro 2 in Sept so I know there not crippling phones. i just meant that prior to the TP2 Verizon was notorious for crippling phones.. Yes Bing is there so i would agree about the GPS but i was looking at the launch unit which was not activated. Im considering spb 3.5 but ill deac Touch Wiz and run the standard UI. Kiltlifter, I do agree with you on the VZ apps and the cab file option but flashing im not sure about. Most people dont understand the process of flashing a cooked rom. I actually delected VZ Nav, Mobile IM and Visual VM off the phone and ive had no problems. i know its not as good as cooking a rom but it is a safer alternative for most people.

Capacitive or Resistive?

I played with one of these a few weeks ago at an Agent Fair, and I could have sworn that it came with a stylus. Not that you really need it. Also, Swype is surprisingly accurate. I couldn't fake it out.

I have the first omnia now and I hate the touchwiz but samsung did have another today screen that is awesome. However, the biggest complaint I had about the touchwz was not enough room for all the widgets, so at least they have corrected that on the II. I will be picking up this phone tomorrow. Can't wait!
