Samsung Wave S8500 to be the world’s first phone with new Picsel File Viewer
The recently announced Samsung Wave S8500 – Samsung’s first smartphone based on Bada OS – will come with the latest version of Picsel File Viewer, the popular mobile application that provides support for Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point) and Adobe PDF.
Some of the features that the new Picsel File Viewer offers include: faster panning and zooming, multiple page views, continuous page scrolling, and higher quality screen update.
Picsel File Viewer’s functionality “will act as a showcase for the Wave’s class leading processing capabilities and screen quality, and set the user experience standard for the Bada platform.” Reportedly, the Wave will be the first phone to come with the new version of the application.

The Wave should be available for purchase starting April.
