Our experience with the Samsung Wave wasn’t all smooth sailing — it crashed when we tried to open Samsung’s Facebook app and we also noticed the back cover becomes quite warm after just a few minutes use. We also remain unimpressed with the widgets in the TouchWiz 3.0 user interface — though Samsung has added new widgets, we didn’t find any that were exciting or innovative.

Overall, the Samsung Wave and the new Bada OS left a good first impression, though the real test will come when the Samsung Apps is launched in Australia. The success of the Bada platform will depend on developer support to produce quality applications.
