Samsung Wave unboxing video

Samsung Wave_GT-S8500_1 It seems like a long time ago that we first saw that Samsung Wave, back at MWC in February in fact so it has taken a little while to make it to market.

The Samsung Wave is the first handsets to feature Samsung’s new BADA operating system and the new TouchWiz 3.0 user interface. It’s also the first handset that I have come across to have a Super AMOLED display. I’d heard that this new display technology was good but seeing it for myself i have to say it really is stunning, clear, sharp, bright and incredibly colourful.

The unboxing video and demo you see below was literally the first time I’d touched the handset and I have to say I am initially impressed. However it takes a little more than first impressions for a product to get a thumbs-up from us so you’ll have to wait a week or so for us to put it through it’s paces and complete the full review.

For now you can see the handset in more detail in the video below.
