Samsung Wave has finally hit the stores in India. I was out on lunch with friends in a shopping mall when I enquired about it at an electronics store. They had it right there. However the dealer did say that he had only 2 pieces and Samsung has released limited stock.
Is available for around INR 17,500 (roughly US $ 350). Going to get one tommorrow.

I was a google map user before in windows mobile and iPhone and wan't really interested in Route66 at all. But I tried to download Route66 Sync and downloaded New Zealand map for free.
The GPS is working really well and it's as good as my Navman. Voice is loud and clear. The only thing it doesn't do is not talking the street names.
I would say, Route66 is many times better than google map actually and I am in love with it now. It's is indeed a full GPS navigation.
People said, it's only 30 days trial but it didn't say anywhere. When I download the map, it's said, "Get it free". But I found you have to pay for advance navigation, weather and other stuffs which I don't need.
Anyway, I have to wait and see whether it's free or not for 30 days.. fingers crossed.

Worth it or not? 99.99% of wave users will say "It's 100% worth it" . And the battery is the best in all smartphones which use touch screen and push exchange.

1. connect the cable to tv -- choose mobile tv (audio and video)
or earphone (audio only) on device
2. mobile tv is like a monitor, really nice and it's full screen (you can see everything on tv screen).
1. setting -> connectivity --> AllShare
2. turn on wifi on device, turn on wifi or cable on tv or ps3 (ps3 is better and faster)
3. quality is better but only photos, music and video can see (not everything like tv out cable.
looks like a great product. will certainly have a close look at it. the specs look very good.
I have a question to wave users only: is the wave worth its price and especially how is its battery back up?

1. setting-->connectivity-->Mobile AP --> make sure mobile AP light is on and Tethering too.
2. find your wireless ap with any device
3. put the WPA key, the default one or the one you put it there.
4. that's it.
Note: internet profile is your UTMS internet. it's WPA therefore, older wireless cards will not work. or try ipconfig /release and ipconfig/renew

I've called a few Samsung Concept stores as well and they haven't confirmed anything else other than the unit still isn't available with one even saying it might be July na. Kainis.

You shouldn't have entertained him ... moresat like tomorrow maybe but i think its too soon for memo to have stocks. if sepco (samsung electronics phil. corp.) receives units today it should be released for distributor on sat or maybe monday. then takes 1-2 days from distributors to dealers so estimated time thursday next week... this sat too early might disappoint you. i hope sooner
