A Touch-Screen Phone With Optical Mouse Navigation
Another competitor to the ubiquitous iPhone is the Samsung Omnia, powered by Windows Mobile 6.1. This model is 100 percent touch screen, but it includes an optical mouse for navigation. Samsung joins the ranks of mobile phone manufacturers that have customized their own variations on Windows Mobile 6.1: The Omnia includes Samsung's TouchWiz user interface, which enables users to personalize their home screen. The Omnia comes with Microsoft Office Mobile, GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera; it is available with a capacity of 8GB or 16GB, with an extendable slot. The 3.2-inch WQVGA LCD screen on the Omnia is slightly smaller than the iPhone's 3.5-inch screen, but it's larger than the 2.8-inch screen of the HTC Touch Diamond.
