Samsung Omnia ROM update – Bye Bye Haptic!

samsung_i900_omnia_rom_update_teaser Samsung Singapore just made its first ROM update for the SGH-i900 Omnia Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone available which can now be downloaded from the web.
This self-service ROM update (no more service center returns) should include new functionalities like new widgets for Samsung’s custom Today screen and a brand-new Hanyu Pinyin text input method for typing in Chinese characters as well as several bug fixes. Other changes and enhancements are unknown yet because Samsung doesn’t published a detailed change-log.

There are several posts in the comments section that this update has an adverse effect on haptic technology implimentation  that Chris noted was missing in his review.  Those who had it seem to have lost it:

"in canada: just did stupid update and wish i hadn’t! haptic feedback is gone as written by others! ssssoooooo frustating!!"

"LOSING HAPTIC FEEDBACK and LOSING KEY LOCK are known issues!! duh?!!! did they test this ROM at all??"
