While Android and iOS devices conquering gadget world and other OS are failing to get traction (Windows phone 7 and webOS), Samsung’s betting big on their BADA platform. They have fair reason for believing in BADA though. Do you remember BADA powered Samsung Wave and Samsung Wave 2 released few months back amidst of Samsung’s own Galaxy series and iPhone 4 world? Success statistics of Wave and Wave 2 is remarkable even in such a tight competition. Samsung has finished with next iteration of BADA and today they are releasing Samsung Wave 3 along with two other handsets, Samsung Wave M and Y.
The Samsung Wave 3 runs a powerful 1.4GHz processor under the hood, 4-inch Super AMOLED display offers best touch experience, 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash is good enough to capture beautiful pictures, VGA front camera lets you video chat and call with friends, 3GB internal memory, micro SD card slot with up to 32GB expandable memory, AGPS support, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi a/b/g/n and 1,500mAh battery. As I mentioned, it runs BADA version 2.0 and features Samsung’s latest messaging application ChatON.
Samsung Wave M and Samsung Wave Y comes with slightly stripped down feature set. Processors are 832MHz and screen sizes 3.65 inch and 3.2 inch HVGA LCDs. The Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y will be on display at this week’s IFA 2011 held in Berlin. We will update the post with pricing as soon as it is available.
