Samsung Rolls Out First Bada smartphone, Sony Ericsson Respond With New Android and Symbian Offerings


Samsung and Sony Ericsson unveiled their new top smartphone models on Sunday, both hoping to improve their positions in the more lucrative part of the phone market.

Samsung, the world No 2 handset maker, unveiled its flagship smartphone model Wave (Model: S8500) -- using a new touch screen technology and the first phone to use its bada operating system.

The Samsung Wave offers a Super AMOLED 3.3" display, a Social Hub and TouchWiz 3.0 user interface. The full touch mobile will be available globally from April 2010.

"Samsung Wave sees our platform vision become a reality. For the first time, developers have the freedom to create applications across multiple platforms, for consumption on a huge range of devices. In the Wave, our developer partners can see the ocean of opportunity that is offered by the bada mobile platform and our device technology," said JK Shin, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung claims that the Super AMOLED offers much brighter, clearer, and less reflective AMOLED OnCell display, featuring a high resolution WVGA (800x480 pixels) screen with mDNIe (mobile Digital Natural Image engine) technology. DNIe technology is proven display technology which incorporated to Samsung?s LCD TV and LED TV lineups. With a free viewing angle and super fast response, the Samsung Wave display provides high image quality for viewing both videos and photos.

Social Hub has been designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate all major portal?s email, IM and SNS services directly into the Samsung Wave. With its TouchWiz 3.0 UI, it provides users easy-flow integrated experience of messaging, managing contacts and viewing calendar events. Social Hub is powered by the push technology to deliver email messages, calendar events and SNS updates in real-time.

The Samsung Wave provides a fully customizable menus and home-page. For those who demand access to their social networking sites at all times, the device allows users to change the layout of the home-page to allow instant access to Twitter, Facebook and a host of other social networking services. For those who love music, the device home-page can be turned into a media player; while for those who take and share a lot of photos, the home page can be customized to feature favourite images. Users will also benefit from Quick Panel, a way of prioritizing and aggregating applications into one screen for instant access.

The Samsung Wave benefits from a 1GHz processor which offers increased graphic performance. Its speed makes the touch screen user interface more responsive and more importantly, means that the 3D and memory-intensive graphic and video performance is unsurpassed.

Other features of the new smarthone inlcude multi-codec support for DivX Xvid, MP4 and WMV, support for virtual 5.1 surround sound and HD video (720p) decoding and recording capabilities.

For the first time in the world, Samsung Wave is incorporated Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n standard.

Samsung?s bada platform allows mobile users to easily download applications from Samsung Apps, an integrated application store accessible from the device and online.

Samsung said it plans to launch five to seven phone models using bada software in 2010.
