Also - it has aluminium single shell body, that GSM arena has missed out.
It also has SocialHub sw, which pulls together thru Seven all kinds of SNSs, IMs, calendar and contact services from the cloud.
So - all in all - pretty solid stuff.

Whats with all the bada hate? So far all i have seen is a very smooth iphone like experience with this platform in its alpha state. its so fast and no jerkyness that we get with other platforms......

Samsung is a big company, they are still releasing phones with other platforms so no need to whine like babies.

Im actually looking forward to this phone.

So, they are releasing a SMARTPHONE with BADA OS... Lol and Lol. I guess they didn't learned anything from there experience when they decided to put LiMo OS in there phones and those away more years developed Andorid and Symbian Os... Very nice move, very nice.. What are those marketing experts thinking?

> In reply to sukrsa @ 2010-02-20 07:28 from 0Cpr - click to readHmm, may be you need an expert to help you with this. Someone with capability to rearrange and modify the internal systems of this new os, interrupts the firmware every 0.000016 n secs, switching the ROM to the RAM, underclocking the cpu down to 434 MHz (319 MHz recommended). And final step is much much much praying, hoping it can changes to symbian. Now, you can easily install symbian softwares into this phone :)

hope this hep.

I think Samsung should make the screen more bigger from 3.3 inches to 3.7 or more inches then the internal memory must be bigger like 32 GB and the last thing that I don't like is why Samsung still using 5 MP camera with LED flash not 8 or 10 or 12 MP camera with Xenon Flash. Hope when this phone finish, come with more better specifications

I'm really excited for this phone.. Although I will wait a bit b4 buying after what happend with the whole Omnia thing.. See if it's really that good..

The design of this phone really reminds me of the Samsung Ultra series.. Specifically the Samsung U600..
The U600 was the best looking phone I had seen when it came out n i fell in love with it's looks.. Hopefully The s8500 will work as well as it looks..

True they rarely upgrade the oporating system, from which they released, which is truely a pitty. But.. If they do publish this really good, and gag a little about how many apps there are available and make a store for just that, (andrioid market kind of thing) then they simply can't fail! It will clearly be the new "device-that-every-one-wants" kind of thing (as iphone used to be). They will simply create a new fashion. But the one difference between this fashion device and the apple will be that this phone actually will be good and worth the fortune u spend on it, am I right?. Or do we have another of those who are gonna gag about this being an "iphone wannabe", because that ship has sailed along with... hmm.. yeah dunno how to finish that sentence.
