yeap, that is the same phone. I was going to get it in the first place, but Samsungs lack of support kind of put me off which is why I went for the N97.

Yes, Samsung support does suck. Basically they dont release worldwide firmwares for their phones, but instead have specific firmwares for each region (Italy/Germany/China etc etc). But the good thing is that the firmwares are easy to "unpack, modify, and repack". I am actually running a cooked firmware which has left out all the nonsense software that Symbian phones come with, giving me a whopping 80mb worth of free space on C.

You can find all the info you need on http://forums.samsungi8910omnia.com/

Trust me, the i8910 seriously kills the N97. The ONLY thing that the Samsung lacks, which the N97 has, is the physical keyboard, but then again I honestly didnt find the keyboard that great in the first place.
