The Samsung Wave is the first phone to use Samsung's Bada mobile operating system. It's designed to bring the smartphone experience to everyone, regardless of cost or geographic location. The Wave doesn't really affect the U.S., where Samsung will still concentrate on Android and Windows Phone 7, but you can buy it unlocked for around $370.

Like the new Galaxy S series, the Wave features a Super AMOLED touch screen. There are a number of advantages to the Super AMOLED display, including wider viewing angles and improved responsiveness, but more than anything, we were most impressed by the screen's sharpness and vibrancy.

You'll use the Wave's touch screen and Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 user interface for most things, but there are a couple of physical buttons below the display, including Talk and End/power keys and a main menu button.

There is also a volume rocker on the left spine, and a lock button and camera activation/capture key are on the right.

The top of the device houses a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Micro-USB port, which is protected by a sliding cover.

The Wave features a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, autofocus, and standard editing options. It can also record HD video.

Picture quality was quite good. Colors were pretty bright even for indoor shots, but despite having autofocus, we still got some blurry images.
