Samsung Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y official

Top-end specs, but can Bada still excite in the age of Android?

Samsung has given the official nod to three new phones packing its proprietary Bada mobile operating system. The Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y, all mooted last week in a comprehensive leak, come loaded with top-end specs. But are they really worth it when similar Android phones are flooding the market?

The Wave 3 is the flagship new Bada phone. With a 5 megapixel camera, 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz processor, it looks impressive on paper. But Bada isn’t exactly loaded with access to thousands of third party apps like its Galaxy stablemates, making this top-end effort a bit of a strange release.

The Wave M touts a 3.65-inch screen and 5 megapixel camera, with NFC also included. Bringing up the rear is the Wave Y, with a measly two megapixel snapper and 3.2-inch touchscreen.

Sammy hasn’t said when these handsets will hit shelves. And before you start flexing your credit cards, remember a string of new Galaxy phones are also expected to be announced this week during the IFA trade show in Berlin.
