HTC TouchDiamond vs Samsung Omnia

Gentle reminder that the 3G iPhone isn't the only new mobile on the block... :D
Diamond over Omnia:
* VGA display (2.8-inch, 480 x 640 pixels)
* TouchFLO 3D Home screen (better than Omnia's Touchwiz UI)
* Nicer design
* More compact body
* Lighter weight
* Active magnetic stylus (Omnia has no stylus slot)
* Touch-sensitive scroll wheel (better than Omnia's optical joystick)
* Better sunlight legibility (by a small margin)
* Standard miniUSB slot (as opposed to Samsung's proprietary custom plus)
* Dedicated graphics chip with 64MB memory
* Comes with the amusing Teeter game (uses the accelerometer)
* Has pre-installed YouTube client and MP3 Trimmer application for ringtones
* Better video playback performance

Omnia over Diamond:
* Bigger, though lower-res display (3.2", 240 x 400 pixels)
* Has a better, more solid build and finish
* Almost double battery life
* Better CPU performance (by a nice margin according to software benchmarks)
* Quad-band GSM support (Diamond has two versions to cover all the four bands)
* microSD card slot (Diamond has none)
* 8 or 16 GB of storage memory (Diamond has 4GB)
* Much better 5 megapixel camera (better processing, higher resolution, face and smile detection, geotagging)
* TV-out (Diamond lacks that)
* Landscape QWERTY keyboard (Diamond has one but only in browser)
* Auto screen rotation is available in all applications and can be switched off
* Comes with DivX video support (Diamond has none, but DivX players can be installed)
* Has pre-installed a custom Alarms app, a Video editor and a unit converter
via GSM Arena
I think these are more exciting than the 3G iPhone

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
