The Samsung Wave S8500 is a flagship touchscreen Smart Phone from Samsung Mobile that offers a step-up from the company's SGH series. Operating on Samsung's own Bada mobile platform, the Wave is intended to compete alongside other leading touchscreen Smart Phones such as the Apple iPhone 3GS, Google Nexus One and Blackberry Storm. Available in both 2GB and 8GB models, the Wave is the first handheld device to feature Bluetooth 3.0 as well as the fully customizable "TouchWiz 3.0" user interface. In addition, the 3.3-inch "Super AMOLED" display provides increased clarity from the regular "AMOLED" technology of some other mobile phones, and is optimized for outdoor use in the daytime.
