Vodafone has just put the Samsung Wave up on its site, available to pre-order.
The smartphone is expected to ship on June 1st, according to the website.
The Wave is Samsung’s answer to the iPhone, and comes with its new Bada operating system, and the TouchWiz interface.
In terms of tech spec, the handset has a 3.3 inch AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera, 2GB of storage, GPS, bluetooth and wi-fi.
Apparently the phone also boasts some sort of virtual 5.1 surround, which along with its HD display means movies on the very-small-screen have never looked or sounded so good.
So Samsung claims, though we can’t imagine that 5.1 surround is going to work with any real bite on a handset.
Still, there’s no denying this is a tempting number, if only to see what Bada is all about. Samsung says the OS will allow the user to tweak and customise their phone, to get it exactly how they like it.
Wave tariffs start from £25 per month for 2 years, that’s with 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of mobile Internet, plus the phone itself for free.
If you’d prefer an 18 month contract, then prices start from £30 per month, again with the handset free.
