Let me write some of my opinions about the device:
Everybody knows wht nice in this device so i wont repeat..
Music, Camera, Basic features such as Keyboards(I hated qwerty until i used wave) , application lock, file manager, Looks, Size, Weight, Ergonomics, all perfect.. oh i forgot the screen :)
No text Reflow in Browser - Using 5800XM n Htc Tattoo browser has really made it very simpler with the text reflow thing.. In Wave one has to zoom in/out pan left/right....
The 1,2,3,4 and the WIDGET button shud have been hidden once it is configured as they hinder the wallpaper on display on this awesome screen
No Smart Unlock
Jet had it, wonder y it wasnt built in to the Wave..
Mountain Middle Button
not a con but it wud have helped if it wasnt so HIGH
Browser version is nothing compared to the actual gmaps on Nokia or Andriod
Cant think of anything more...Just been 2 days with this device...
All in All a wonderful device in 17,500 rupees (350USD)
all of touch devices nowadays have smart unlock feature..
wherein you use the touch screen to unlock the device..
iPhone - slide to unlock
HTC - slide down and pattern
Motorola Droids - swipe sideways and pattern
Maemo - slide to unlock
LG - long press the screen to unlock
Nokia - press unlock then confirm (lame) but can have other styles if installed LOL
Palm Pre/Pixi - Drag to unlock
and of course
Samsung Wave and Galaxy S
Sweep the Screen/Glass to Unlock

Just got my WAVE 2 days back & i am just "thrilled'.....
It's class personified i must say.....I have used AMOLED devices like nokia n85 & samsung jet but nothing good or even close to the screen contrast of WAVE.....
It's a sheer poetry......Great screen , superb touch interface , beautiful video , nice applications , great processor.......What else can you ask for.....It's the final nail in the coffin of iphone 4.....MATCHLESS !!
Really worth your every hard earned penny !!

You can not program unlocking feature in Wave:
Lock button (very convenient):
- short press - half lock (phone still in "sweep to unlock" status for a few seconds, screen power down and lock all the keys)
- long press - full lock (the phone locked and screen power down immediately)
- short press - half unlock (you need to sweep the screen to fully unlock)
- long press - full unlock (the phone is completely unlock)
any updates regarding the MUCH AWAITING release of Wave here at the Philippines which was supposed to be a month earlier? Geezz..
This is one truly amazing phone...
and i got this in India for just Rs. 18000 which is like 315euros...
but its true that a huge app support for bada will take time and for now i m ready to wait for it..
