The Samsung Wave is coming to Canada soon (via Bell) and we got a very quick walk through of it today.

The video is below but the one of the major highlights is the 3.3-inch Super AMOLED display. Samsung is hammering home the screen quality and the Wave has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and is incredibly bright… even in bright situations. Other quick specs of the Wave is that it operates on Samsung’s new open mobile platform called Bada where developers can create and share apps, 1GHz Samsung processor, 5 megapixel camera that can record HD video, 3.5mm headset jack, holds up to 32GB with a microSD card. In addition it has a dominant set of speakers… you’ll hear them in the video we checked out on YouTube below.

This is going to be available very soon… check it out here (video still processing through YouTube)

Final Score

    Samsung’s screen tech sounds great, but hard to imagine that they can launch a new smartphone OS at this stage.

    Probably better to a Samsung Galaxy S which has the same screen.

  • RogersGuy

    I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these during the Olympics. The president of the Samsung mobile division Mr. J K Shin dropped by our store and let me play with it for about 5 mins. I can truly say that the display is incredible and the phone was very snappy.

    Oh it’s not Android.

    In otherwords, a joke.

    Move on everyone.

    With the S9000 (Galaxy S) launching with Android 2.1 (2.2) I don’t know how much Samsung is really going to be Backing Bada. If this was there great answer to the phone market why would they not back in on all there devices from high end to low.

    Leaves me thinking Bada is not ready to offer the consumer what they would want out of a smart phone OS for applications.

    The phone itself looks great, good specs would rather see Android on it though. I have a feeling Bada is a gamble that may not be able to compete with the other established big names.

    Great phone! too bad its running Bada…

    None of us have played with Bada or Wave, specs look incredible, they have an application store with apps – I hope I can give it a test run at some store, might be good. Reviews are pretty decent…
