The Samsung Omnia has really come a long way since it was first released. Phonearena have put together a nice video review of the latest version of the Omnia, the Omnia HD i8910. Not only does it have a competitive eight megapixel camera with flash, HD video recording and playback, a surprisingly good battery life, and a form factor that’s not too hard on the pocket, measuring in at just a wee bit taller and thicker than the HTC Touch HD. You will also see from the video that its AMOLED looks brilliant, highly responsive to touch and seems simple and easy to get use to.

Check out the video review by Phonearena:

With such great responses to our recent free gadget giveaway, we’re now throwing in another prize draw and remember, anyone can take part as long as you follow the three simple steps below.

Unlike our last giveaway, this time we are going to be randomly drawing three winners. So here are the three prizes we’ve put up for grabs, completely free for this new contest.

First Prize

A Cyber Clean Cleaning Compound, we featured this handy must have cleaning kit when we took part in the first Gadget Show Live event a few weeks ago. Its great for those (like everyone) who eat in front of their computers all the time, someone once told me that the keyboard has as much bacteria as the toilet seat, I wonder if that could be true?

Anyway, here is what it looks like:

Second Prize

For the second prize, we’ve got a pair (two per pack) of “Wrappz” for the iPhone 3G. For those who have no idea what that is, these are like protective stickers. Printed using the latest digital techniques, wrappz are made of Patented 3M vinyl, allowing easy application and can be seaminglessly removed whenever you want in case you don’t like it, they don’t leave any residue once removed. To give your Wrappz the ultimate protection, a hard wearing laminate is applied giving your device extra armour against daily wear and tear. For more info on how these work, check out the FAQ here

Here is what it looks like:

Although we published a way to track online the movement of the Swine flu pandemic using Google Maps a few days ago, it is by no means the only way to follow news of the new H1N1 virus and its spread. Tech savvy, or more specifically iPhone (and iPod Touch) users, will soon be able to download an app called the Swine Flu Tracker off the App Store. While, it is still currently in queue to be approved by Apple, there is no doubt that the developer IntuApps will be quickly credited by popularity for creating this app amongst all the Swine flu craze.
