We let you know that Bell will be releasing the HTC Legend shortly… today we got a tip from the same reliable source stating that we can also expect Bell to release the Samsung Wave.

The only sign we received for a release date is that it’s planned for sometime this Summer.

The Wave (S8500) will operate on Samsung’s new open mobile platform called Bada. In addition, quick specs of the Wave are that it comes with Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 interface, 3.3-inch Super AMOLED display (480 x 800 pixels), 1GHz Samsung processor, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and can take HD video, 3.5mm headset jack, can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi.

We’ll have more information for you soon… Bell has certainly stepped up their device offerings since launching their HSPA network!

    Hh yes, this is the best news i’ve heard in a while. I’ve been longing for ANY sign of this phone in North America. Hopefully first half of June, b4 I go on holiday

    Samsung makes the BEST hardware!! the best screen, great camera…etc, sadly their software/UI SUCKS BIG TIME…

  • Annoying

    Let me offer a preemptive “WHO CARES” as I know they will SCREW YOU on a 1 or 2 year contract. Lets hope I am wrong.

    3.3″ screen? Kinda small

    This seems like an ok phone. I like the speed, dislike the design (looks like omnia junk) and I dislike the operating system should have just stuck to android for this powerful device

    I have to say I’m scratching my head on the Bada OS. I see how it may save money to the consumer buying the phone but is the support or perhaps lack there of going to cripple this phones OS?

    I’m interested in this one though, Andriod 2.1 would have had me sold.. what can you do?

    wow might pick this one up when i get my hug in a few weeks if out!

  • Endi

    it also does 720p video recording @ 30 fps! don’t forget to mention that

  • eric2k

    To a regular non techy consumer Android means little.

    BADA should be fine. I am excited for it!

    Go Samsung!

    Now bring the Galaxy S bell :P

    The phone itself looks pretty nice but I’m not digging the proprietary OS. I’d rather go for the Galaxy S (oh, if only we had that option!) with a more open and better known platform. Screen’s kinda small too :/
