Can’t Samsung Re-Launch the i8910 Omnia HD?

Samsung i8910
Bright Future?

The Samsung i8910 was announced at the Mobile Wold Congress 2009 and officially launched around the world some time in May 2009. At the time it was announced, it was not short of innovation. Being the first mobile phone to boast a 3.7″ AMOLED display, first Symbian phone with a capacitive screen, first mobile phone to support OpenGL ES 2.0 and the first mobile phone with HD video recording. Add to that an ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor with a Hardware Graphics Accelerator, 256MB RAM, an 8 Mega pixel camera and a compass just to mention a few of the highlights. Some of these features are the same as, if not better than the features seen in mobile phones that have been launched lately. Continue reading “Can’t Samsung Re-Launch the i8910 Omnia HD?”

Petition to Samsung Mobile to improve/fix/maintain the Samsung i8910

My first post! Whoo! Right to it then.. Ok, so I started a petition to Samsung Mobile so they would fix/improve/maintain the Samsung i8910.

Samsung i8910 in all its (not-so) Glory

My petition is over here: http://www.petitiononline.com/fixi8910/petition.html and as I write we are slowly approaching a 1000 signatures(964 to be exact). The statement reads:

To:  Samsung Mobile

For Samsung to live up to its promise to maintain, improve and fix problems with the Samsung i8910/Omnia HD. We paid a lot for this device and we expect as much back. If not with Android, at least to fix the firmware/software problems so we get what we put down our hard-earned money for.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Not too shabby but the petition statement was sort of rushed, I’ve been criticized quite a bit about it. Got some advice from Steven Litchfield of  http://www.allaboutsymbian.com from the Phones Show, one of my favorite podcasts.  Hope it gets enough momentum I’ve been putting a lot of effort into this. I’m currently working on a report that I will send to Samsung Mobile. It could take up all my summer break but its all for a good cause. I mean I love the phone, its got a lot of potential but I think for that potential to be realized some people need to be pushed – no shoved – AK.. ok, getting carried away, but you get my point. Sweet. That’s my first post and I’m loving it!
