Question on Omnia II

Okay, so I'm looking at maybe getting an O2. Other phones I'm considering are Imagio and TPro2.

The advantages as I seem 'em for the O2 are:

Bigger Screen
Faster Processor
8 GB built in
LED Flash
FM Radio (vs. TPro2)

Disadvantages are:

Bug/Slow/Weird interface (not a huge issue... I'll probably throw Mobile Shell on it)
208 Megs of RAM
No hardware Keyboard (vs. TPro2)

Would you all say that's about right?

I have a few questions for those with an O2:

Does the Radio require headphone plugged in? If so, where does the audio play if you have a bluetooth headset with stereo audio pushed there?

Is it relatively easy to remove the default interface for mobile shell?

Anyone know of a "flashlight" program for the Omni? A program which will turn on the camera LED for use as a makeshift flashlight?

Thanks.

Re: Question on Omnia II

Go for it! Omnia 2 with TouchWiz turned off (immediately), or better yet, Custom ROMs with bloatware removed, more memory, faster response, etc. 21898 and up from Ninja4Hire http://www.modaco.com/content/verizo...m-v1-1m-21898/ are fabulous for 6.5 Pro, (which I find more stable) and for bleeding edge, 6.5.x roms from Yardi and AMDZero, both also at Modaco.

I will see if I can get them to post over here for you guys.

Oh, yeah: Mobile Shell works great on here. Haven't done the headset radio thing, but I think there is a menu option.
O2Compass V3.3 for flashlight, with or without the Compass.
