SEOUL, KOREA Ã¢â‚¬â€œ June 9 2008: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading mobile phone provider, today announced the launch of Samsung OMNIA (model name: SGH-i900). It brings together high performance business content, top of the range style and a fun, dynamic multi-media experience, to ensure consumers are always connected both at home and at work. OMNIA, meaning Ã¢â‚¬ËœeverythingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in Latin and Ã¢â‚¬ËœwishÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in Arabic, goes beyond the current top-of-the-line features available in todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mobile phones. The OMNIA will be available to the market from June 2008.
Bringing a PC environment to Mobile
The new Samsung OMNIA allows users to switch seamlessly between Microsoft Outlook email and productivity applications that replicate the look and feel of their PC - with a stroke of their finger.
Based on the most up to date Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system, Samsung OMNIA gives users a mobile extension to their PC experience, with access to MS Office documents such as PowerPoint, Excel and Word. Users can also send and receive email and manage their appointments in Outlook while on the go. The Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system means users can download additional programs as they would on their PC and customize it for their individual needs. For ease of navigation an optical mouse similar to those on laptop computers offers improved usability and one-handed control.
