Looks like it's out with the old and in with the new for Windows Phone developer handsets, with Microsoft announcing it has no intention to provide NoDo (or any future updates) to beta devices such as the Samsung Taylor. Even though test units were given free to many devs, a few poor saps have repo

It's been a bit of a unicorn since making a quick appearance at MIX, but we just got the chance to go hands-on with Samsung's Omnia i8910-based Windows Phone 7 prototype phone. Interestingly, we were told that this hardware will never be released to market -- it's just for testing purposes right no

Kinetic scrolling, ladies and gentlemen: are you ready for it? We sure hope so -- if you happen to be using Samsung's rather uncommon i8910 HD, that is -- because that sweet update promised back in December appears to have finally hit the ground running. Besides the significantly improved scrolling

What do you do when you're unhappy with a product you've bought? Return it? Complain on an online forum? Write to the company? Well, for one Mr. Panashe Ngwerume, the answer's a little more complicated than that. You see, this particular gentleman was so incensed by the Samsung i8910 HD's problems

Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of mobile for Monday, September 7, 2009: Samsung's got a version of the Jet for its domestic Korean market, the clumsily-named \"Haptic AMOLED.\" Unlike its international cousin, the Haptic AMOLED packs a T-DMB tuner (as just about al

If watching the N97 crawl out of its Espoo-designed packaging just isn't enough for one day, how's about this? An unlocked Samsung OmniaHD (or i8910, if we're being proper) has found its way into the ever-loving hands of one mareskino, and he was kind enough to unbox the thing on video. Better stil

Say what you will about S60 5th Edition, but here's the thing -- of the smartphones in the news today, only one has a massive AMOLED display. Samsung's i8910 HD is almost irrefutably the baddest-ass S60 device ever produced and one of the most heavily-spec'd smartphones ever made for any platform,

Whether you call it OmniaHD, i8910 HD, or even \"Timmy Tim\" (hey, it could happen), Samsung's AMOLED--infused smartphone is a winner, if the fine lads at Phone Arena are to be believed. Points go to its HD video recording and playback, a surprisingly good battery life, and a form factor that's not

Rumors have been flying the past couple days that the OmniaHD is no more -- at least, not in name -- and it turns out that's partially true. We've received official word from Samsung that the S60-based superphone will be \"selectively\" renamed to \"i8910 HD\" in some countries \"due to business issues.

If those brand ambassadors are going to get their devices any time soon -- and they happened to be located stateside -- they'll be needing a little something we like to call an \"FCC approval.\" Good news is that milestone has now been met, but the bad news is that the OmniaHD's only been passed with

Samsung's OmniaHD may have just been announced (and touched), but already it's seeing its first taste of critique. Russian site Mobile-Review had a chance to get said handset underneath its camera, and it also took the opportunity to blast out a few hard-to-interpret first impressions. Judging by i
