Samsung Wave

I would like to talk about smartphone in this post, mmm...instead of talking about iPhone4 or Android phone, i choose to talk about Samsung Wave. What so special about this phone? from hardware standpoint, the spec is quite standard, no more and no less compare to other smartphone manufacturer like HTC, Sony Ericsson, Iphone and etc. The only thing that grab my interest is the OS, this is the first device from Samsung phone series that running on its home made OS, Bada. what the heck is Bada? okay, Bada means "Ocean" in Korean. i think Samsung hope Bada can flood the world smartphone market with this Wave...what a nice name ah... this is the first wave of Bada.

Wave comes with Google widget so that you can have quick access to maps, mail and it star search. It is also preloaded with Twitter, Facebook, Youtube & BBC Iplayer apps. Internet access is via Dolphin browser, another home made apps by Samsung. I never hands on at this phone, but from the YouTube video, it seems dolphin is very simple to use and it should be no problem for you to surf the web without any issue. Wave is come with 1GHz ARM CPU. So i think you won't feel lag when running your favorite apps.

I check our local website, the price tag is about RM1.4k to RM1.6k, but i believe you can get cheaper price at the phone selling counter in shopping mall with using your pasar malam bargain skills to get the best discount price. Overall, it should be a good phone to own by looking at the price and overall spec. Personally i think there is one downside about this phone which is Bada. The OS is very new and i bet you hardly get variety apps from web especially the unpaid version, which is always suit my taste (kiamsiap) people like me. So it is a challenge to Samsung how to make Bada famous compare to Iphone, Android or even Window mobile which have already thousands of apps around the web.

Please check the YouTube video for more details introduction and hands on. Enjoy!!!
