> In reply to Perennial @ 2010-02-26 20:32 from mg$F - click to readwhy would someone use BT and Camera at the same time??

anyway,
my biggest fear is that application support for BADA wont be as good and Dev community wont find the OS appealing

Samsung is know for its reluctance to tackle issues like FW and so on.. :(

Check out the video recording sample in the preview of Phone arena. Quality is amazing, definitely my next phone. A bit too big in size though...Maybe SE Vivaz will be good too, waiting for the reviews of both phones

tv with sup.amoled seems to have a great result, what do you think?

> In reply to ac.phil @ 2010-02-26 11:02 from P@cf - click to readyeah I did! at first I thought it was a stylus, but then again, why need a stylus if the screen is capacitive? I mean....the sense, right? i don't believe it is indicated on the specs that there will be an antenna, or is there? hehehe

but then again, TV on the phone which is a super AMOLED screen...hhmmmm...how would it look?

> In reply to lord_RED @ 2010-02-25 17:54 from RxnW - click to readif i choose wave i'm a elite person or i always want to have the best but when i choose the beam it will just give me some pogi-points and a projector for me to boast? hahhaha...... so i would choose the wave... as you have said it is for the best and beam is just for pogi-points but i'll wait for more information about the beam...... and a question... have you seen the antenna on the beam? what's the use? i guess it's for a live tv....what do you think??

> In reply to Jaco @ 2010-02-25 16:46 from Nhg} - click to readwell good for you to have an HDTV, that would explain as to why Beam would be out of the picture for you..but i've also read on the BEAM's thread that to view the projector movies or what have you, you'd have to be in a pitch black surrounding to maximize viewing pleasure, but nevertheless, having a projector is indeed quite a convenience and a plus factor for bragging! hahaha

ac.phil, palagay ko depende sa kung ano talaga trip mo or yung lifestyle mo. If you are more on the elite type of a person then go for the WAVE, if you want pogi-points i'd say go for the BEAM.

If i'd have the cash and would be within my budget i'd sure go for the Beam. I find it very interesting. I'd swap my StarWifi and add cash to get it anytime! hehehe

in your own opinion which is better wave or beam?
i am planning to buy a phone sometime in the future but i am confused with this two phones. wave is thinner and faster and i also want to try the bada os, in the reason that it is nice looking and has over 100 million games from capcom. but beam has larger screen for better viewing, larger internal mem, and better camera w/ 8mp, projector for nothing? ah can be used as flashlight and ?, running android (eclair),, a small difference but what do you think? ano sa palagay niyo?+_+

Ill list the differences and i think for me...the wave is better. i will never use the projector on the samsung beam since i will just stream video via DLNA to my 52inc HD Tv.

The wave has anti smudge which i think is awsome. Dont know about the beam?
The 8 megapixel on the beam doesnt make it any better in camera quality than the 5 mega pixel,its only a higher resolution.

The beam comes with andriod so obviously more games that you can play than the new bada platform. But the wave is faster which should result in better graphics games. They said the wave can do 89million triangles via a sony psp only doing 33million.

Wave is thinner, bluetooth 3. My next buy :D.
