Samsung Wave S8500 available in Canada (via Rogers and Bell). Samsung Entro also launched

As of today, the Bada OS-based Samsung Wave S8500 is finally available in Canada – and not only at Bell, as rumored a couple of months ago, but also at Rogers.

If you’re lucky enough to be a Bell customer, you should know that its Samsung Wave is much cheaper than the Rogers version. I’m actually stunned at the no contract price on Bell: only $299.95. With a 3-yr agreement, Bell offers the Wave for $29.95 – you can buy it online here.

Rogers, on the other hand, sells the Wave S8500 for $99.99 with a 3-yr agreement, or for $474.99 free of contract – check it out here on the carrier’s website.

The Wave S8500 is Samsung’s first smartphone to use Bada OS. It features lots of neat features, like a 3.3 inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP autofocus camera, HD video recording, and a 1GHz processor.

Apart from launching the Wave, today Bell has also introduced the Samsung Entro, a touchscreen featurephone with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, GPS, and a 1.3MP camera.

The Entro costs $29.95 with a 3-yr contract, or $149.95 free of contract. You can get it here.
