Samsung Omnia i900

The new Samsung Omnia i900, now here's a good non-Nokia phone but is expensive. It seems like a lot of people are into Samsung now unlike a year ago wherein being seen with a Samsung phone is like being the poorest of the poor or the most uncool thing ever. There is one catch though, despite the Samsung Omnia 1900's power packed features, users are reporting that no one gets to use the GPS of their Omnia because of a bug and no firmware flash update is available.
