Hey what do you guys think of the new Samsung Wave S8500

there's a good review on GSMArena here: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_s85...-review-480.php

It's also selling from Expert Infotech for $635
http://www.einfo.co.nz/shop/product...oducts_id=18905

Which seems pretty good for a phone with a 1ghz processor. I guess it all really depends on whether the Bada OS takes off or not though.

Yeah I was quite impressed @ the processor speed, 720p video recording and the WVGA Super AMOLED screen , especially at that price. might pay to see how Bada OS turns out though. I had a look at what apps are available and there doesn't seem to be too much. I can't even tell if it has an ebook reader.

I don't have a smartphone yet so I'm still saving money and will make a decision once I have enough. Maybe by the time I save Bada will have more apps. what sort of apps do most people use on Android phones?
