Lately, I have been thinking of geting a touch screen phone. It seems that after Iphone Generation 1, all other manufacturers have come out with various designs using a touch screen interface.
In fact, before Apple iPhone, LG was the first with a touch interface, that is with the LG Chocolate. New incarnations of the touch screen phones from LG includes the LG Viewty which has a full touchs creen interface. There is also a Windows Mobile 6.1 LG KS20 which is also touch screen/stylus operated phone. The newest is the LG Secret also has a similar kind. The LG all come with HSDPA of 7.2mbps.
On the Samsung front, there is the Samsung Omnia SGH-i900. This phone is also based on the Windows Mobile 6.1 and has a touch screen interface with rotation sensor. It also has GPS, Divx playback and tv out + HSDPA of up to 7.2mbps all built into the phone.
The other competitor is the HTC Touch Diamond. It has the best GUI among all the Windows Mobile 6 devices so far. One thing lacking is the lacking of external storage support.
So, what about the iphone 3G ? Basically, it does not have a front lens for video conferencing, it does not indicate what speed the HSDPA runs at. Is it 1.8mbps or 3.6mbps. It is not clearly specified in it's spec sheet. Most importantly, this phone doesn't allow you to videos at all! Really strange.
Here are some videos of the Apple iPhone 3G, Samsung Omnia, HTC Touch Diamond I found on the net. I posted it here for your refernece. Feel free to comment on the topic.
