guys have you noticed the specification page? they edited the content specifically the CPU (from 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, now w/ additional "PowerVR SGX540 GPU, Hummingbird chipset")
-maybe it means that samsung resume to manufacture wave S8500 and lucky for those who will own this unit in the future b'coz there will be additional parts (chipset) on their wave. Nice one...
Where is BADA 2.0 update???? Samsung already released a new BADA phone with BADA 2.0 software version. Its unfair as we do not receive any updates on our Samsung WAVE S8500!!!!!! GGGGrrrrrhhhh!!!!!! We were stock on BADA 1.0!!!!!!!!!! Bad marketing strategy!!!

Hey ! Wavers from india, Check it out, Wave 8500 is now NOT available on support page of samsung mobile india website, We are out of date now................LOL, I feel like cheated........
I own one of these, a Wave GT-S8500, and the OS is bad bad bad... i hate it. no good apps and the interface is difficult to use. the screen is awesome though!
For those who have updated their S8500 to 1.2 officially:
What's the text message capacity, still 1,300 messages?
You still get "not enough memory", "page too large.." when using the Dolphin browser?
Still get the "content not supported" when trying to download some content using the browser?
The music player (in random playback) cycles back to the previously played tracks when you press the next button?
And lastly, are the Equalizer and Effects working when playing m4a tracks?
Hope somebody could answer.
I love this smartfone its brilliant and just short of a good twitter client,,any suggestions welcome.I have resorted to Snaptu for ease of use.I listened to 12 hrs of podcasts on 50% volume and still had 2 bars left.I have all i want in this device except a qwerty keypad but it will do for now.

Mga tol, haven't you noticed sa mga posts dito? It seems gsmarena is filtering posts to be displayed per region. Maybe it's just my imagination.
BTW, can't wait to see the first Nokia Windows phone. A possible Wave replacement.
niko, 12 Feb 2011guys! what is better? bada os or windows phone 7 os? thanks!WP7 obviously. Period.
And bada 2.0 will be officially announced soon. This is sad. 1.2 is not even available yet. I'll never buy another bada phone ever again.
After I updated to bada 1.0 dxjk1, my phone started to hang and restarts itself. Talk about half-baked updates.
