Chris, 14 Jun 2010Thanks bro.. About your SD card, try to check if it is protected or encrypted.. Maybe the wave... moreit is confirmed!my card reader is obselete..hehe..i tried it with my colleague's laptop which hv a sd card reader & it worked just fine..i'll just hv to get myself a new 1..& probably a 16@32gb card if my wave can handle it..i'll confirm this later..
i would like to answer few questions too:
1)word editing-no sir, there's no preloaded doc editor..the picsel viewer is only for viewing, no editing..but the good news is that it supports Office 2007 as well..
2)dictionary-no sir, no preloaded dict too, but i'm sure there'll b an app on it coming soon..
3)gps navigator-ours in Malaysia got GPS..i managed to play aroung a little bit with it yesterday evening, & it looks promising..got walking & driving option,fastest route,slowest route,etc..that's definitely smthng i'll xplore more..
4)alarm-i'm not so sure what do u mean by good alarm, but for me,the wave's alarm works just fine..IMHO..

Add taxes and it will end up to around 23-25K... Maybe ask a Senior Citizen to buy so you will have 32% discount (joke,,,) Good day everyone...
NEW great game coming for Wave :)
I am the biggest complainer on gsm about touchscreen fones however am getting on pretty well with Wave...Its because it feels less cluttered than windows and android and symbian 5th edition were they allow you homescreen to cluttered full of widgets ..When i had xperia x1,,htc touch pro and t-mobile pulse they allow you to cran widget after widget onto homescreen wereas Wave spreads them over 10 screens but i just press menu for most stuff allowing 12 of your most used apps ..I am sure i got 42 apps on homescreen of x1..Homescreen one on my wave is just a wallpaper with no widgets altho i would like the clock of htc G1 to go on their but these will appear as time goes on...Pressing a button and swiping to unlock screen and seeing a gorgeous wallpaper glowing at you starts the day off good..
On the pricing of wave i think its well underpriced to launch the BADA o/s,,with top audio chips/proccessor/codec support and wifi N and bluetooth 3 to mention a few put the bada more into the 500GBP price bracket and we should not forget the new top of the range super AMOLED display..Next BADA fones will be a bit less in spec (obviously) because unless they up the MP which is unnecessary or increase the screen the Samsung Wave is running at the highest spec on any other smartfone..I cannot see the audio quality,,bluetooth or wifi N or super AMOLED screen being surpassed this year....
