KSR, 06 Oct 2010What Rizul sharma told was true..
I have been trying to buy myself this gem for the last 15... more@ KSR, you may be correct about Samsung discontinuing the Wave in India, but do you really think that Samsung can afford to bring a Bada phone (Wave II) at the same price as the Galaxy S ?
If it was the case, then for the hardware that the S8500 Wave offers, it would've been priced around 24k.
Another thing, if the pricing of Wave II is the same as the Galaxy S, it would be simply destroyed because no buyer would be willing to shell out so much for an infant OS. The most logical choice would be the Galaxy S or the upcoming Milestone 2 because of the proven Android OS.
So, even though the Wave II would be costlier than the S8500 Wave, I dont think it will be more than 22k-23k which will still be 3k-4k cheaper than N8.
