The Samsung Wave, aka the S8500, is the first mobile phone to be released on Samsung's new Bada platform that gives access to a number of apps. The Wave also has a beautiful Super AMOLED screen for an unbelievably sharp and bright display. This is all combined with its TouchWiz 3.0 intuitive user interface and social networking feature Social Hub.
Super AMOLED touchscreen
Samsung say “seeing is believing” with the world's first Super AMOLED touchscreen. While the screen is smaller than some rival smartphone's at 3.3-inches, it packs a powerful punch, offering a brighter, clearer and less reflective display.
Samsung's Social Hub integrates all major email providers, messaging and social networking services together into one place whether it's G-mail, Facebook, Twitter or MSN so that you get live updates as they happen. Push technology enables Social Hub to deliver emails, calendar events and SNS updates in real time.
