All weekend long I have been toting around three phones – BlackBerry for email, iPhone for personal calls and the internet, and a Nokia N82, with it’s 5 megapixel camera and xenon flash, for photos. We already know that iPhone 2.0 will feature native Microsoft Exchange integration. Driving back, I commented to Janice that if Apple today were to augment the new iPhone with a decent camera, then I could probably go to a single device.
Lo and behold, just hours ahead of the Apple announcements, Samsung has unveiled the i900 Omnia – an iPhone look-a-like running Windows Mobile 6.1, with a 5 megapixel camera. Just yesterday, the details of the BlackBerry Thunder, another iPhone look-a-like, also leaked out. You can bet it will have great email support, although camera quality is anybody’s guess at this point.
Over to you, Steve Jobs.
