Samsung Wave 3 lands in Europe

Samsung Wave 3 lands in EuropeWe first met the Samsung Wave 3 back at IFA in Berlin two months ago. Shortly afterwards, we were told to expect an October arrival, but alas that failed to materialise.

Fast forward to the end of November (i.e. now), and Samsung has announced that it’s finally beginning the global rollout of the Wave 3.

Our friends across le channel will be the first to get their hands on the Samsung Wave 3, followed by Germany, Italy, Russia and “other global markets” before the end of the year.

Here comes Samsung’s President and Head of Mobile, JK Shin, to shout things about the Wave 3. “The Wave 3 is a smartphone to benefit from the power of the bada 2.0, as well as a newly expanded suite of Samsung applications and services. We will continue to enhance our bada platform and its eco system for Wave smartphone line-up by developing more innovative features, application and content services.

“We believe the Wave 3 is a smartphone that will truly deliver Samsung’s commitment to the bada platform in the mobile industry, and I hope customers around the world will enjoy it and take full advantage of its many innovative features.”

The Samsung Wave 3 has a 4in Super AMOLED display, 1.4GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage (expandable to 32GB via Micro SD), and – as JK Shin says – runs bada 2.0.

Samsung’s bada has been quietly ticking away in the background, but it's actually outselling Windows Phone 7. Nicely done.

Considering how little is said about Bada and how much is said about WP7 it is funny it is doing better than Windows, not really tried it myself tho so cant comment

I had the first Wave for a couple of weeks for a review. I was really pleasantly surprised. The OS took the best of Android et al, and turned it into something fast, easy to use and very stable. And though I found it a tad ugly, it was rock-solid hardware-wise. At the time Opera Mini and some other apps I rely on weren't available on Bada - otherwise I would have 'kept' it.
