Samsung Wave S8500 available in the UK, £366.99 unlocked
It looks like the Samsung Wave S8500 is already available in the UK, although initial rumors had it that the phone would only be launched in May.
British customers can buy the Wave S8500 unlocked for £366.99 (about €422 or $565), or with various data plans from T-Mobile and Vodafone – you can get the handset eve for free, if you choose an expensive contract.
You can check out all the offers at Phones Limited UK.
Launched as Samsung’s first phone to run Bada OS, the Wave features a 3.3 inches Super AMOLED touchscreen display with 480 x 800 pixels, TouchWiz UI 3.0, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, DNSe, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, and at least 2GB of internal memory.
Later this year, Samsung should announce more Bada phones, some of which will feature QWERTY keyboards, at the same time being cheaper than the Wave.
