Today's pattern of upgrading technology and race of organizations to upgrade their gadgets is moving with the speed of light. This competitive market has forced the companies to launch their new products back to back in very small intervals of time. The incorporated features in the gadget become the trump card for the company to survive in the market. Competition forces the rival companies to come with a new feature in their new gadgets. Thus the market always has the gadgets of same segment moving shoulder to shoulder in the race. Not only the features the price of the gadget is also a value that competes.

I'm sure by now you all have heard about the launch of long awaited new Apple iPhone 3G. The main selling point of the new 3G iPhone is that it is faster and cheaper than the original iPhone. Another plus point is that it will be available in Apples traditional white colour scheme as well as a standard black version also.
The 3G iPhone fixes most of the annoying features of the original iPhone such as extended battery life, including GPS and mapping application, HSDPA makes the handset 3.5G and including GPRS and EDGE support. Unfortunately there are some features that have stayed the same, which could have been upgraded easily. The camera is still 2 mega pixels, the screen is still a 320 x 480 pixel panel, and the battery is still not user removable resulting in a trip to an Apple store for a new battery! Features such as Bluetooth and WiFi have remained the same.

If you are planning to purchase the new 3G iPhone, enhance your pre-purchase market research and take a look at the Samsung i900 Omnia. The Samsung i900 Omnia also known as the SGH-i900 was announced on the same day as the 3G iPhone, it is very similar and will be going head to head against the 3G iPhone. Here the competition of this segment phones increase and so provides better options for the user.

Samsung i900 Omnia has a 5 mega pixel camera which is significantly better than the iPhone's 2 mega pixels, it also has an FM radio, TV output, stereo, and Bluetooth and expandable memory which is all significant features the iPhone lack. Both phones have GPS, WiFi connectivity, HSDPA high speed data, GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth and USB 2.0. The i900 Omania measures 112 x 56.9 x 12.5mm and weighs 127g, the 3G iPhone measures slightly larger at 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3mm and heavier at 133g.
From the above comparison of specifications it seems that the Samsung Omnia will prove to be tough competition for the iPhone. But only when both the models are in hand of the user for daily use, good and bad will be exposed with time. The popularity and acceptance of the individual mobile phone will be judged by the customer feedback only.
