Samsung announced the availability of its full touch screen super AMOLED display featuring Samsung Wave smartphone in Europe. And just to refresh your memory on its highlights, the phone boasts to be the first handset in the world to incorporate both the Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n standards, the first HD phone with DivX certification as well as the first smartphone based on Samsung’s new open smartphone platform, Bada.

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a leading mobile phone provider, today announced the commercial availability of the Samsung Wave (Model: S8500) in European countries, including Germany, France and the UK. Unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2010, the Wave is the first smartphone based on Samsung’s new, open smartphone platform, bada, and is the cornerstone of the company’s commitment to ‘smartphone democratization.’

With the launch of the Wave, Samsung is actively constructing a total eco-system around bada platform including Samsung Apps. Samsung Apps will be available in 80 countries when the Wave launches, and will increase the premium content and applications pool through collaboration with partner companies and developers.

The availability of the Samsung bada SDK (Software Development Kit) will ensure that consumers can experience a steady stream of new applications that support bada platfrom. The beta version of the SDK was recently made available to applications developers, and the complete bada SDK 1.0.0 will be available for download shortly.

“The Samsung Wave represents our strategy to deliver rich, exciting smartphone experiences to everyone,” said JK Shin, President and head of the Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “This launch will make our platform vision a reality and consumers, developers and operators will experience the freedom of choice that bada enables.”

The Samsung Wave will expand its availability from European countries to Southeast Asia, China, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

    I cannot say that I am a proud owner of Wave yet, but I definitely admire the enormous potential of Samsung Wave. Rest all depends upon our respected developers who are working hard to make the firmware even better.
