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



    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.
    Nice. When you say "push email is available for those who want it" - is this something that would come with the data plan?
    I don't have an enterprise server, I'm more asking if I can push gmail to my phone for free, similar to BB? (without the hassles of the unstable BIS)

    And you can turn off the accelerometer? This phone sounds promising
    Especially with the haptic feedback...no moving "click" parts, which have a shorter life expectancy.
    I'm very intrigued...

    I'm also interested in hearing more about Omnia's push email. My company used ActiveSync with WinMo devices in the past, so I'm pretty sure I could at least get push email for my work email address, but I would like to be able to have it for my personal gmail address as well...

    Google currently offers the ability to "push" email - search for

    Google Enterprise Push

    or check more at Google Sync services

    Microsoft is also in limited beta-test phase for this using their My Phone service.

    Google covers only WM & Android devices. Currently, MS only covers WM, but is planning on expanding it to include Android, Symbian & Linux phones.

    No BlackBerry for either, but both will include single-point access for all your email online anywhere you have a connection or your phone.

    Also - O2 has no issues with being sluggish - it is remarkably quick.

    From what I can tell in the vids on you tube it didn't seem that sluggish

    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.
    Hey now, I carry an iPaq 210! There ain't much bigger than that, but I don't exactly have large hands. I sure as heck wouldn't mind an Omnia HD.

    But seriously, an Omnia 2 will have an even nicer screen than the 210, so no reason not for me to jump on it.

    So you're telling us you have big hands?

    I had to edit this because I actually read the thread and found the link I was going to post. I should learn to read everything and not skim the posts.

    I was going to post Samsungs emulator link but it was already on page one.
