For a long time, Samsung mobile phones and Sony Ericsson have been the underdogs in the Smartphone world, unable to match the seemingly unbeatable might of iPhone and HTC. However, with their latest releases, the electronics manufacturers are aiming to steal Apple and HTC’s smartphone crown. While the Galaxy S II, released in May, is well on the way to overtake the iPhone 4’s sales, the success of the Xperia Ray remains to be seen. Here’s how the two handsets compare.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is not only one of …
Give a technology enthusiast a Bada-based Samsung S8500 Wave and an Android-based Samsung Galaxy S II – what do you get? This comparison review!
This Samsung Wave blog has a Facebook page with more than 6 000 fans, and many of them complain that the smartphone doesn’t come with Google Android – let’s then compare Bada vs Android.
Today the Samsung Bada 1.2 software update became available in my region, so I decided to give it a shot with my Samsung S8500 Wave.
There’s quite a few changes, some of them not very noticeable, others just plain obvious. Logically, software updates always fix bugs, and sometimes bring new features. This isn’t Bada 2.0, which may release later this year, so do not expect a huge revolution.
The latest version of the Bada SDK, used to make Samsung Wave apps and games, is out, and brings some new cool features.
For those of you who aren’t programmers, you can skip this post, as it doesn’t affect the use of the phone, but it helps developers make software quicker and more efficiently.
If you’re a new reader at this blog, or even an old one, you’ll have noticed that this Samsung S8500 Wave blog is managed by one and only author, a Wave user, just like you.
I’ve been asked many times, but no, I am not affiliated with Samsung, but this blog does form part of the TugaLogix network, a group dedicated to bring content dedicated to phones.
Nothing better than to battle two smartphone giants. The reason I’ve chosen to do a Samsung Wave – Nokia N900 comparison is that I own both devices.
Before you call me a rich boy, you should know that I got the Wave for free, but I don’t consider it any lower than the N900. They are both excellent handsets and fulfil different requirements of my tech life – if you’re a geek, you’ll “understand” these.
Although I won’t teach you how to program for any platform right here – I’m still learning my C++ and VB – there is an in-depth Samsung Wave developer’s guide being published this September, and potential programmers may get it for free, all you have to do is sign up!
The book will probably be targetting those who either have some insight to programning, or have full C++ knowledge, being mostly useful as a reference guide or introduction to how the whole Bada system works.
Even for experienced programmers, it is quite …
This is an official figure: under four weeks of market in not-so-many countries, already one million Bada smartphones have been sold.
I already have mine, gifted by Samsung, and it’s a quite a powerhouse!
If you remember well, EA said it is giving out 1.2 million free Need for Speed Shift Wave games, so if you are going to get the Samsung Wave, do it soon, or else no game for you!
This milestone in terms of sales means that this increases the possibility of a Samsung Wave 2 coming to market, and …
Did you think Samsung had forgotten about its own home country? Of course not! South Korea always gets the best of phones, with TV and all, unlike most of the world.
The specs here are actually the same, but what changes is the T-DMB support, the mobile TV module which the rest of the world doesn’t support, because there are no networks, no advancements in technology, all due to inefficiency from government regulators and network operators.
Anyway, SK Telecom is rumoured to be getting the Samsung M120S very soon as a picture …
