Vodafone Puts Samsung Wave On Preorder

UK Mobile phone operator Vodafone has pushed the Samsung Wave smartphone (opens in new tab) live on its website with customers being able to preorder the phone for as little as £25 per month on selected plans.

The phone comes with Samsung's own proprietary BADA mobile platform and features a 3.3-inch AMOLED screen with a screen resolution of 800x480 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm 1Ghz ARM-based SoC and packs what you'd expect from a mainstream-to-high end smartphone.

So you have Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, Compass, Motion Sensors, HSDPA compatibility, a 5-megapixel camera with LED and the capability of recording HD video. For £25 per month, users can expect to get to get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data.

Samsung also says that the phone will offer 5.1 surround sound that "adds a new dimension to entertainment on the go" and with 2GB internal memory (that's complemented by a memory card slot), you should have more than enough space to play around.

The phone has an expected launch date on the 1st of June 2010 and interested customers can visit this page (opens in new tab) to register their interest.
