Samsung has recently released the Samsung Wave 2, the less costly offspring of Samsung’s popular Wave phone. Though the Wave garnered a large following, its higher cost kept many buyers away. With the Wave 2, Samsung is hoping to capture a larger slice of the smartphone market, particularly those who may not have as much money to spend on a new phone. The Wave 2 is priced to attract students and young adults, who represent the majority of social networkers, but typically do not have a great deal of income to spend. To keep the price down, Samsung did make some changes to the Wave 2, but it still has many of the original Wave’s great features.
Among the most popular of the Samsung features that have been included with the Wave 2 is the soft key QWERTY keypad and predictive text input. This can be a real time-saver for anyone who sends lots of text messages or updates, not to mention the fact that you will not have to keep pecking at the keypad. There is also an accelerometer, so your Wave 2 includes the auto-rotate function, allowing you to move quickly between landscape or portrait modes when viewing pictures or documents. Just turn the phone on its side and it adapts the image to fit the screen. Also included is the TouchWiz 3.0 UI for simple, easy to understand navigation. Even those unfamiliar with smartphone technology will be able to quickly find their way around this system.
With 80 MB of built-in storage and the capacity to support up to 16 GB of additional memory through a microSD slot, the Samsung Wave 2 is a hand-held media studio to go. Store music, videos, and images at your finger tips, or change out memory cards for endless media access. The microSD memory cards also allow you to easily transport your favorite media from phone to phone, or phone to computer, giving you easier access when and where you need it. And its 3-megapixel camera not only allows you to record SD video, but play back mp4 video and touch up images you take with an image editor as well.
Similar to Motorola’s Motoblur, Sony Ericsson’s Timescape, and HTC’s Friend Stream, Samsung has a social networking tool titled Social Hub. It allows the user to organize a contact’s information – including basic information, email accounts, social networking accounts, and more. It makes keeping up with friends and associates a breeze, because all of the information is in one place. The user no longer has to check and update each separate account (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to stay in touch with his/her various contacts.
Weary of the constant social buzz? Take a time-out to enjoy one of the Wave 2′s numerous entertainment features on its 3.2″ 240×400 TFT LCD touchscreen in over 250,000 colors! Or pop in some ear buds and kick back to your favorite tunes using the Wave 2′s more popular audio formats, including mp3, eAAC+, and wav files. Not sure what you want to listen to? Why not tune into your favorite radio station through the Wave 2′s integrated FM stereo? With the Samsung Wave 2, the possibilities are endless, no matter how big your wallet is.
