Just ignore 2SEE. He doesn't have wave that is why he said that. The only problem is N8 is not even release and he says it is already better... But who knows, it may be better hahaha... Well, 2SEE, we'll see...jeje
bobby, 17 Jun 2010im not sure with the agps but who cares phil maps not updated anyway hehehe... but 8gb support... more
there are at least 3 classes of sdhc cards. but I guess they are all supported by the Wave.
Prashant, 17 Jun 2010At this price Nokia N8 is faaaaar better and superior than Samsung S8500 Wave, Nokia N8 has 12... morebefore you say n8 is better y not try to check the performance of the phone with small processor and heavier OS the wont would be slow. xenon, 12mp and 16gb internal is something n8 is better. but other than those 3 wave is better... you'll see when you get your hands on the phone. and the biggest dif is the price tag atleast 30% more expensive
Prashant, 17 Jun 2010At this price Nokia N8 is faaaaar better and superior than Samsung S8500 Wave, Nokia N8 has 12... more LOL! you buy smartphone, you only care camera 12Mpx? Ask you! ever you wish you have laptop with cpu pentium4, WC 12mpx instead cpu Core i7 and WC 5mpx?.
Symbian is good? oh no! if symbian so good, why N9 will run MeGoo Os?
Why don't buy 32 GB memory card with speed class 10 instead 16 GB memory (include) with speed class4. Are you sure nokia will give free 16GB memory card? oh no. nokia can't make memory card, they buy from other OEM.
HDMI? so sily, ever you think that, you want see movie on your LCD with a cable always conect to your phone? if you want make a private call? what will you do?. Wave S8500 had DLNA, with DLNA you can share your movie with highest quality to your LCD, Computer and you can do more...
Chris, 17 Jun 2010Samsung Philiippines says the phone doesn't support AGPS, so i guess that was removed, and the... moreim not sure with the agps but who cares phil maps not updated anyway hehehe... but 8gb support not true. any card reader that supports 8gb can support upto 32gb max as they have only 1 format from 4gb sdhc-32gb max. 64 will be coming but dif format so new hardware required

Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010Thanks but can you tell me it runs java ucweb opera mini because in my country internet speed ... moreHave not tried opera mini yet coz the browser of the wave is good but it worked in my Jet. So I suppose it also works with Wave. All java Apps that worked with my Jet worked with my Wave.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010Has one actually updated their fw through kiews or did everyone flashed it?if you read back. somebody flashed to JF2 but said no noticeable difference. Just wait for the big one. If your current FW is buggy, then flash to JF2 or JEE. Mine is JEE, working vefy flawlessly.

If you have plenty of money, go for the i9000 since it has an Android OS, but if you what cheaper, go for the wave..
i want to ask, which one is better?? samsung S8500 Wave or Samsung I9000 Galaxy S ?? i wait for the answer. thx
Cannot understand this different spec for different regions,,ok they stop wi-fi in china models but except for language change for that country it should have exact same spec..if thats the case your wave should be cheaper then than were i am in uk..fairs fair.
bobby, 17 Jun 2010official price for phil. 19900php dont but it if higher than that... if lower as long as offic... moreok thanks bobby, i just hope the dealer that i was supposed to buy the wave could get some stocks..
Prashant, 17 Jun 2010At this price Nokia N8 is faaaaar better and superior than Samsung S8500 Wave, Nokia N8 has 12... moretry to look at the demo video of N8 and see that is slow on UI, so laggers.. and the recording of HD video looks like it was below 20FPS..
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010"....for Philippines, they just remove some functionality at the firmware...." Ho... moreSamsung Philiippines says the phone doesn't support AGPS, so i guess that was removed, and the max external memory limit set for the Philippines was 8 gig instead of 32 gig..
Prashant, 17 Jun 2010At this price Nokia N8 is faaaaar better and superior than Samsung S8500 Wave, Nokia N8 has 12... moreMmm..we've got a nokia fan here..use the compare function in the gsmarena website & u'll notice few other MAJOR differences between the two machines..which IMHO, will give a significant effect towards the performance of the phone..but i do envy some N8 specs tho..
At this price Nokia N8 is faaaaar better and superior than Samsung S8500 Wave, Nokia N8 has 12 MP Camera with Xenon Flash+ 16 Gb Memory Card+HDMI card , Symbian 3 OS Whereas Samsung S8500 wave has only 5MP Camera and no merory card included with phone, other future are almost same only advatage is battery 1500mah as campare to 1200mAh.
It is released in INDIA at a price of 19100 INR. Quite surprising. Need to check something is downgraded
ah.. i see it, thanks for the information.. was searching frantically for the speaker... haha
