I want to buy a new phone and am confused between the samsung innov8 and HTC Diamond. Although the phone I really want is the HTC touch pro. Out of this world.
Does anyone have any clue to when it may hit the market.

@Mohit, Samsung Innov8 is 8MP camera phone, whereas HTC Touch diamond is only 3.15MP.
HTC touch pro would be a good cell phone cum PDA. Processor speed is 528Mhz & has Windows Mobile 6.1 OS.
Samsung Innov8 is heavily priced at ~ 45k.

Smile HTC Diamond vs Samsung Omnia

Do we have any consensus on the htc diamond vs samsung omnia. It seems those are the only two phones, I could think of jumping too from my viewty.
diamond is at 25k and omnia (i900) is at 36k (includes 16gb memory + 16gb microsd card)

I am reading this comparison at the moment

yep I realized and so did the guys at engadget who did the comparison
quote from the conclusion page is "The good thing is they hardly overlap, so getting your priorities right is all you need to make the right choice."

Oh how I wish, it was the omnia hardware with the diamond's looks and touchflo interface. The omnia has got everything that I want, storage, battery life, good 5mp camera and hardware wise its worth jumping to from the viewty (i am winmobile fan and the viewty isn't quite there yet with its flash based OS)

Guys, any heads up on when the Nokia Tube 5800 will be available here? And what is the expected price?

Also heard of some rumor of WiFi and 3G being disabled for China - hope they do nothing like that for India

The expected price is about 20K and should be here in about 2 months.

what is b&w
well i was just googling for prices and found a 32gb omnia on sale for 36k inr. On checking the link, i realised it was 16gb omnia with 16gb card. But thats just one instance, i think 8gb cards are out there - so a 24gb omnia is feasible as of now

The Omnia is just not upto scratch - you'd be disappointed after paying 36 big ones. It has very impressive specs but somehow it doesnt all seem to come together to create a cohesive user experience.

The HTC isnt as impressive on paper, but the Taiwanese device beats the Korean one in real world usage.
