The camera includes a raft of photo taking aids which includes auto focus, face and smile detection as well as image stabilisation, geo-tagging and an LED flash. In addition the camera is also able to record and playback video as an alternative to static imagery. The inclusion of a secondary camera for video call purposes is a
welcome addition.

The display screen on this handset is a 3.2 inch TFT resistive touch screen, which is able to display 256,000 colours at a pixel screen size of 240 x 400 pixels. An accelerometer sensor is provided, which alters the aspect of images shown on the

text and data entry simple and effective.

The Samsung i900 Omnia Red comes with a multitude of connectivity options which includes GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, Wi Fi and USB. Internet access is provided and is available at speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps through its own internal connection as well as

The Red Samsung i900 Omnia utilises the Marvell PXA312 624 MHz processor for its CPU requirements as well as utilising the Microsoft Windows mobile 6.1 professional operating system. This smart phone also provides pocket office, which include Word,
Excel and PowerPoint, as well as providing a TV out and a voice memo function. The handset's popularity is justified and this new colour variant adds a different dimension to the range.
