The first bada handset has officially been unveiled as the Samsung Wave, and it’s looking pretty special indeed.
Most striking is the Wave’s 3.3inch Super AMOLED screen, running at WVGA resolution and using an imaging engine more commonly found in Samsung’s LCD and LED TV range.
Sporting a 1GHz processor, the Wave uses the TouchWiz 3.0 UI, which now features Social Hub, a social media aggregator that pulls feeds from Yahoo, MSN, Twitter Facebook and Myspace all into one place. The UI is pretty customisable too, so you can tweak this one to your hearts content.
There’s also DivX / Xvid support onboard and 720p video recording, as well as access to the soon-to-be-launched Samsung Apps store.
“We’re delighted and extremely excited about the launch of Samsung Wave – the first handset to run on the Samsung bada platform and the first to feature a stunning Super AMOLED screen,” says Samsung UK’s Mark Mitchinson.
