Surf’s Up – Samsung announce new wave of Waves


Following news that the original Samsung Wave has sold 1 million handsets worldwide, the chaps from Seoul have seen fit to bless the world with a raft of new Bada-powered devices.  The device you see here is the catchy monikered Wave 743, looking part Tocco and part iPhone 4, and it and its new brethren will be running Bada’s latest revision, Bada 1.1.  Sadly though it seems that Super AMOLED is no longer riding the Wave, with the 743 sporting a 3.2" TFT screen (touch type undetermined), 5mp camera w/ LED flash, microSD slot and WiFi.  The new Wave, like its Galaxy S cousin is also packing Bluetooth 3.0 – the more the merrier.

Other devices announced from the Wave family are the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro.  Also sporting only 3.2" TFT-type LCDs, is this Samsung downranking the Wave devices?  Maybe not, it appears the Wave 2 is pitched lower than its forebear as a cheaper option, and includes a generally lower spec – 3.2mp camera, EDGE not 3G, 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1.  Wave 2 Pro is basically the same but with the addition of a decent looking slide out QWERTY keyboard. Is this the beginning of Bada becoming Samsung’s general OS from its mid-range smartphones to its featurephones?
