The Samsung S8500 Wave, soon to hit the Indian markets, is a beauty to behold. Samsung is launching its own brand new OS the Bada OS with the S8500 Wave as its next flagship model. How will it fare against heavyweights such as Android, Windows Phone 7 and Symbian? Only time will tell.
The mammoth Super AMOLED touchscreen is the heart of this beauty giving it stunning image quality. Its powered by an ARM Cortex A8 based 1GHz CPU, so it is hardly lacking in horsepower. Its greatest disadvantage is that having a new OS, there are not many applications available – unlike the numerous applications for Android or Symbian.
