    Hey all, I have a Treo 700P and since Palm is all but dead, I am looking for something to replace it. I played around with the Omnia for a while and it appears to be a suitable replacement. Can anyone post some links to reviews of the Verizon CDMA version of the phone. I know it is slightly different from the GSM non-US version that everyone reviewed earlier this year.

    Unless there is a better WinMo Phone out there on the Verizon network?

    BTW, you can access & use the subscription aspect of Rhapsody music service with the Omnia. I switched form the Treo 700p to the Omnia & have been very pleased. The only Omnia negative, is that the SMS & MMS on the Treo was better for ease of use. I need to look into SMS add ons.

    Also, you do not have to use the widgets home page. Currently no very useful. However, there is a ROM update brewing that will allow more widgets to be added.

    I too came from using the Treo 700P. I agree that the MMS and SMS was better than that of the Omnia, as was Chattermail.
    The keyboard will take some getting use to. I purchased the SPB keyboard and it makes typing easier for me.

    I don't use the widgets. They aren't customizable and I didn't find them useful. I think the standard windows mobile interface is better.

    I also purchased elecont launcher so I can launch my favorite apps from the today screen as I did with the 700P.

    The contacts app on the Omnia isn't as good as the Treo either, but the Omnia has BT voice dialing so I don't really need to use it.

    There is no lag, no odd reboots, Opera mobile is much better than the Treo's browser, the camera is much better, it can multi task, no skips with playing music, and video streaming is a lot better.

    I've installed:
    elecont launcher
    elecont weather
    vito ringtone editor
    flash player 7 ( I can actually view some flash content)
    youtubeplay
    musicID
    Google maps (doesn't work with the standard keyboard)
    pocketTV (streams mpg video)
    screen capture (same as snap for 700P)
    vox (blogging software)
    uno
    poker
    bill buddy (reminds me when to pay my biils)
