The Samsung S8500 Wave is a mobile that the company tried its level best to keep under wraps but couldn’t and the phone is almost out now. The Samsung S8500 Wave runs on Bada OS, which is basically the thing that the company is keen to show off in the MWC and not so much the phone. The S8500 Wave is Samsung’s first handset running the bada OS, an expandable smart platform to make use of the company’s own app store (Samsung Apps).

It has been built around the familiar and friendly TouchWiz so that users do not have any difficulty dealing with it. The key promotional tagline of the company is that they want to make smartphones available to all. Bada makes use of Social Hub - to integrate all kinds of social networking (Twitter and Facebook) and push email powers. The 3.3“ WVGA screen that the phone comes with is said to reflect less light and certainly offers impressive contrast and brightness.

The phone offers support for DivX/XviD, virtual 5.1 surround sound and better yet - decoding of 720p video which will also make it one of the best multimedia experiences ever. You can even store some HD videos too - the Wave has 2GB or 8GB of built-in memory, and supports microSD cards up to 32GB.

The camera is just 5MP but is able to record 720p video and we have got some samples for you to see for yourself and then decide.
