BARCELONA, Spain--The ink is barely dry on the Samsung Wave announcement , but T-Mobile already is stepping in to distribute the device in several European markets. In addition to the Wave at Mobile World Congress the carrier also introduced the T-Mobile Pulse Mini.

Remember that the Wave is the first handset to feature Sammy's new Bada OS. CNET's Bonnie Cha handled the phone shortly after the announcement two days ago. Though she liked the brilliant display and features of the Windows Mobile handset, she's not so sure about Bada. Yet, customers across Europe will have the opportunity to check it out for themselves. The Wave will launch during the second quarter of this year in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.

The T-Mobile Pulse Mini, which is made by Huawei, runs Google Android 2.1 and looks a bit like the earlier T-Mobile Pulse . It features a 2.8-inch touch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headset jack, a media player, 300MB of internal memory, a memory card slot, and USB mass storage. The Pulse Mini will be available in April in Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Montenegro, Macedonia, Netherlands, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.
