N ow that many cell phone specifications have become standard, we go a step further, and the importance of a good operating system becomes more and more evident. On the one hand, this is for recognition and ease of use, and on the other hand, functionality and available content. After the arrival of the Apple iPhone, Google also launched a new operating system; Google Android. Now, Samsung is also presenting a standard operating system, Samsung Bada. That may be important for its own identity, but the question is if it is possible to compete with the existing systems.

Samsung S8500 review : Samsung Bada phone menu

The menu can be accessed with the middle key under the touch screen. Next to three start screens, the menu itself is also made up of three tabs. This is fairly simple, but it resembles the iPhone quite a lot, in terms of design. That is actually too bad, because with a new operating system, you want to be able to distinguish yourself. Now it is just like the rest and it is hard to compete with the existing systems such as Apple and Google. The menu can be arranged according to one's own tastes, by holding down an item and then placing it in the desired location.

Samsung S8500 review : Download applications

Next to all the standard functions, there is also room in the menu to download applications. This is also similar to Apple's App Store and the Android Market for the Android operating system. However, the selection available in ‘Samsung Apps' is still pretty meager. That is not surprisingly due to the new Bada system, but it's too bad. That makes for quite a setback compared to the competition. I am curious if this will change, or whether few developers will work with it in the future.

The Samsung Wave is a sleek cell phone and the first in the Samsung Wave series. The Samsung Wave S8500 is versatile, with a super fast 1Ghz processor, a 5.0 megapixel digital camera, GPS-antenna, and of course, HSDPA and Wi-Fi. The crystal clear AMOLED-screen delivers a beautiful display of everything that is happening in the Phone. Our experiences with this new smartphone can be read in the following Samsung Wave S8500 review.
