i have 8500 too...do you know it have shorten display light life which Samsung is fixing in i9000Galaxy?...and Wave 8500 have memory processing problem...says NOT ENOUGHT MEMORY-CLOSE SOME APLIVATION?-that means Wave 8500 cant run 2 programs in same time without any warning message about having not enoudht memory...and this!!!!Samsung S8500 Wave Comes with features micro SD- The Samsung S8500 Bada Wave is finally hitting the shops but there seems to be a problem. The micro-SD cards that ship along with the Samsung S8500 Wave package seem to be infected.
Samsung S8500 WaveThe S8500 Wave ships with a 1GB micro-SD cardmicro-SD card which accidentally has a malware program called slmvsrv.exe on it. It is a self replicatingself replicating virus known as Win32/Heur and appears with the AutorunAutorun.ini file.
The virus will begin auto installation when it is inserted into any PC having the autorun feature enabled.
This does not seem to be just a specific unit problem and may be a problem with most handsets. We are hoping to hear an official statement from Samsung either confirming or denying this. source
KSR, 14 Nov 2010I want to share one gr8 quality I have observed in WAve's macro mode.. If u r taking a clos... moreAnd you think it is a great quality? Of course the flash must have lower power when using Macro mode, that is just basics. But what is bad is that the flash has not low power in standard mode when the subject is close, and then it makes the picture all white. That is a bug in Wave camera, hopefully will be corrected in Badba 1.2
nokia n8 is nothing compared to samsung wave!:)only the 12mp camera n lag lag n lag..wave is the best phone on its price range..now wave 2 is coming but missing "superamoled".instead it will b having s-lcd or super clear lcd and a bigger 3.7' screen.price will b 25000.:.:Owe r lucky to get wave at approx 18k..
GrimReaper, 14 Nov 2010i have a question. could wave theoreticly record in 1080p, or is there hardware limitation by ... moreFor recording 1080p videos, theoretically u need atleast a 8 MP camera. So theoretically wave can never record videos at 1080p. Bt heck, who needs 1080p, for me even 720p is more than enough. I record most of my videos at 480p.
Though u must know one more ultimate thing that WAVE meets all hardware requirements to play 1080p videos so may be some day u will get to see it.
Bt the kind of software support samsung is known for, i suspect that day would ever come. Just see the kind of softwares chosen by sammy in the bada developer contest. Seriously disgusting!
Also i dont find many useful softwares in the application store. Most of them are garbage. But still i love my WAVE. So i would love the day when a phone would be called a WAVE KILLER!!! And lets agree to the point that N8 can never be a WAVE KILLER. Be it with the so called SPB SHELL or whatever it is. It might add eyecandy but what about speed and performance???
I suggest and request all guys and gals to use this term WAVE KILLER in there posts as frequently as they can, whenever mentioning a phone which comes anywhere near Wave specially in this price range. Only then it will truly be GLORIFIED.
LONG LIVE WAVE, LONG LIVE BADA!!!
Im also waiting to buy this phone since last one month,the same reply was given in chennai mobile showrooms,that the model has been stopped,but in samsung showroom i got an info that it will be released again on nov 25 with upgrades,so eagerly waiting for the launch and counting the days with amount ready in cash.do kindly inform me if u get any info regarding the sales of S8500....

1.It has WIFI tethering inbuilt and N8 has to add some silly software like joikusoft.HAHAHA(JOIKU -HAHAHAH).
2.It has a better video recording HD at 30fps .Poor thing N8 doest hav the guts to play at 30 fps.HAHAHA
3.Super AMOLED in wave.Poor N8 has AMOLED.HAHHAHAHA
4.Better sound quality and quantity in wave.
5.1 GHz processor in wave.Poor N8 has 667 Mhz.HAHAHAHA
6.More ram in wave.

Dear Friends all over the world.
I have had an opportunity to hang around with the Wave S8500 for a while. The best part of the Wave S8500 is that it has a highly responsive touchscreen, an extremely fast processor, the display of the Samsung wave S8500 is a real treat to your eyes. Its gives you the feel of a high end LED TV and when it comes to the audio quality of this phone no one can compare any other handset with this one. The audio chip-set of the Samsung Wave S8500 is made by Wolfson electronics one of the most reputed experts in the acoustic domain. The most amazing thing about Samsung Wave S8500 is the loudness of sound from its internal speakers, it is so high that you feel as if you are sitting right in from of a mini home theater system as it surrounds with each and every single detail about the content that you are watching or listening. It's not a crap or a joke but a fact that I personally experienced on my own. The battery life of the Samsung Wave S8500 is so amazing that you can watch 2 full length movies non stop or even more than 2 movies. Don't just go for my word's go and try it. And with the launch of Wave S8530 Samsung continues its legacy of quality entertainment to its most beloved customers who trust them.
wave is the best i cant believe it 5MP camera of wave is beat of nokia n8 12MP... N8 12MP is bad watch this video...
samsung wave is the best superior smartphone.. guys vote 10-10-10 this phone is great no one can beat samsung wave... even thought n8 has 12MP but poor resolution.. watch the video.. im planning to buy n8. but when i saw that video i changed mind, i will buy wave next month.. Good Job samsung is the best...
Wave isnt available at any store..So,I just did a quick search on the internet n found that few pieces of wave are available in online stores of india..
ebay -Rs 22500(under bidding)
infibeam -Rs 18343
rediff shopping -Rs 18490
indiaplaza - Rs 17500
indiatimes shopping -Rs 18460
naaptol.com - Rs 17500
So, grab these before they get out of stock..
n as far as i know wave S8500 wont b available coz of the shortage of s-amoled screen..thats y they had to go for waveII..even all the under production super amoled screens are booked for iphone4,new galaxy s..
hello waver,download ucweb7.4 & enjoy very fast browsing & downloading most better than opera(4.2&5.1) and one more thing if u want dj remix songs go to djmaza.com & enjoy full power of wave music player.its too awesome music that can't explain.

KSR, 14 Nov 2010I would definitely agree with you reg Wave's still image quality..
It has got a pretty dece... moreThats wat i wanted to say.The hardware is good .its just the software that needs improvement.And today only i saw that i hav been using my wave in AP uart mode.i changed it to CP uart mode and i opened 8 apps like calender ,asphalt,bruce lee etc.and there was no error of low memory which i used to get.this is really a good mode if shorter battery is no problem coz the battery life will get shorten in this mode.
And one more thing.I connect my phone to home wifi .sometimes when i sit idle after connecting to wifi for about 15 min,and when i try to open a site,it says "no response".Has anybody encountered such problem wid wifi?
