    Verizon Samsung Omnia - MSM7500 400mhz CPU instead of Marvell 624mhz CPU = SUCKS

    Exactly what title says.

    I was going to get the Verizon Samsung Omnia until I saw that Verizon had Samsung put in the old MSM7500 400mhz processor. It can't even be overclocked. Ahh, I knew Verizon would do something to screw us over.

    Looks like it uses the 800mhz marvell PXA320 to me.

    Phonescoop would agree with that too.

    Straight off the Verizon Wireless Website. And NO, it does NOT use any 800mhz processor. That would be for the T*Omnia. What are you guys reading?

    TBH I think the VZW site might be wrong on this one, all other omnias appear to use the PXA312 (even though pdadb lists VZW's version as using the PXA320) why switch from a marvell chipset to a qualcomm one for 1 carrier?

    Edit: A much lower end chipset no less

    Edit#2: I went back and looked at Samsung's previous offerings and they are all based around an Xscale PXA series processor of some sort except the i760 where it looks like they made their own processor. No qualcomm chipsets to speak of. HTC is the one that uses the qualcomm chipsets on almost everything; I'm betting its just a mix up on the spec sheet on VZW's site.

    I also notice that the VZW website fails to mention the 8GB of storage as well.

    Failing to mention something and mentioning something that is wrong are two entirely different things. They cant put everything on the website. But if they specifically put down a lower cpu, then thats a big deal. I think it is probably a mistake also, but they did put it down. Now all we need is some information from actual owners to see if its true or not.

    well on the verizon website it also lists the saga as having 256mb of RAM which is incorrect.

    also that would be basically the same processor as the xv6900

    Im guessing a poorly vetted website

    The saga does have 256 mb of ram according to every web page that has its specs.
