    Call me old fashion, but I don't think I'll ever get used/like an on screen keyboard.

    Once u get used to an on screen keyboard its no big. Especially if the screen is big enough.....
    Being able to switch to landscape and type
    makes a world of difference

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I probably could get used to it with time. It does look like a nice phone though, but I'd never ditch a Berry for it. I'd use it if they give it to us as a work phone, haha.

    For one 800mhz processor.
    3.7" screen
    480x800 res
    5mp cam w/flash.
    Side by side screen comparison with the HD2
    right there.
    I think this is a whole different animal

    It is a whole different animal - the processor is so advanced, compared to what is currently out there, it is like night & day.

    The Omnia II is the current mobile phone of choice if you want video. The screen is amazing, it is thin & not too heavy.

    A side note - the original Omnia has a huge following. Those who held onto theirs love them. They are hackable & take cooked ROMs well. The people who didn't like them expected them to behave like an iPhone. Again, uneducated purchasing decisions...

    Since Samsung has held back on some of the improvements to TouchWiz2, I think I like TouchFlo 3D better - something that surprises even me.

    I also prefer physical keyboards, which the O2 lacks. Still, it is a phone so good, I would learn to live with the virtual keyboard. But that virtual keyboard is every bit the equal of iPhone.

    The redesign of the cubic button for VZW is even a plus - it makes the screen look larger & softens the look of the phone.

    Toss a 32GB card in it, load up music & videos & have at it.

    Another plus for O2 is Samsung typically pays more attention to accessory pieces, like cases & cradles - they also get them out faster for those of us who prefer OEM pieces.

    Agreed; although I havent gotten the pleasure.. *cough* of supporting an O2 yet.
    My sisters Omnia is my bane. She loves it. I hate to even THINK about it.
    But then I hate touchscreen phones period.

    If u don't like touch then this isn't for you.
    The first Omnia didn't do a thing for me.
    But when I started looking at the Omnia 2
    I was very impressed. Seeing how the long
    awaited HTC FD2; is coming to the states
    but going to T-Mo. I linked a thread I started
    with some links. But gonna put the links
    here. Along with this and the HTC lineup
    VZW is coming out with a pretty impressive
    lineup; and yes including S2

    I haven't gotten to play with the O2 yet, but from what I've seen/heard it should be comparable to the HTC Imagio which is the only phone I've come across that actually made me think of ditching one of my BB's.

    With the way Win Mo and soon to follow Androind are upping their hardware specs; and if VZW keeps brining out a decent line of phones the wa they are now.
    Honestly I could care less if the iphone comes.
    I was going to go with the Imagio til I saw this one.
    Hardware wise this thing is almost on par with the HTC Touch HD2. Side by side wow; go to the GSM Arena and the have a
    pic of it next to the iphone.

    One thing I noticed in that article u can change your color scheme.
    That is one of the biggest things I missed about Wi-mo.
    Also there is a ton of utility apps.
    With MS mobile mrkt plc and Samungs
    widget store. Wow.............
    Wait u can adjust the iso on this camera?
    Oh man

    Well, I am debating between the Omnia II and the Storm 2, I said I would never go back to WM, but the Omnia II looks really good, I want to try out both before I decide

    I'm no rep, but I'm liking the Omnia HD better...or at least what I've seen so far.

    The problem with the Omnia HD is that it may be too large for most people. One-handed operation is pretty much a no-go, unless you have very large hands.

    And it looks like Sprint - your preferred carrier - won't be getting it - at least not right away.

    I didn't even notice that it had an 800mhz processor... Thing must be really quick...

    Really what impressed me about the Omnia II was of course the screen. Great resolution with an AMOLED display...

    I still think I'd take the Imagio over it tho...

    The resulotion on the Omnia HD isn't as high as this if I remember reading
    correctly. But it displays more colors so that probably makes it a wash; or an
    edge to the HD

    I don't think you can go wrong with either; I was really wanting the Imagio
    til I saw this one..........
    The Imagio is a nice device too

    The resolution on this thing is going to blow the Storm away.
    Also texting on this thing in landscape mode looking at the
    keyboard layout is reminiscent of the Storm. The screen won't
    have that click when u press it. But I think it is gonna be ok.
    This phone is a serious gaming device as well.
    As far as push email I haven't researched that.
    That is one thing I appreciated with BB

    Funny, those were going to be my 2 questions
    Push email (for personal accts) and keyboard layout.

    I assume it doesn't have an accelerometer, at least not like the Storm? Does it only switch to landscape when you're trying to type (email / text) on it?
    I think that would be the best compromise.

    No clickety-click, but selectable & adjustable haptic feedback is part of the mix.

    I think that would be the best compromise.
    Push email is available for those who want it or who have MS Enterprise available.

    It has a full accelerometer & proximity sensor. Turn it & it automatically switches to landscape mode. Set it face down & it mutes your call. Put it against your face & the display turns off. Pull it away & the display relights in a smart-mode, with the keyboard ready for phone system key-entry.

    Best of all, when connectivity to the RIM servers goes away, it still works.
