Samsung's 'Bada' OS has drawn mixed responses across the tech community. Most of us are witholding judgement until the first Bada smartphones hit the street. While we still don't know that much about Bada, its flagship smartphone has just leaked out to the world. BGR reports (via DailyMobile) that the S8500 'Wave' will be Samsung's first Bada phone.

The Wave looks like a pretty sweet device, so far. It sports a 3.3” AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.0 (and maybe 3.0), a 5 MP camera with AF and Flash, a 1 GHz processor, and 2 GB of onboard memory. It has an aluminium body, 1500 mAH battery, microSD capability, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Altogether, the S8500 is shaping up to be a very solid smartphone. The design looks great, and so far my only complaint is the size of the screen. Most manufacturers are shooting for 3.7+” on their high-end smartphone displays. I wonder why Samsung felt the need to downsize it...
