More Bada Fun with the Samsung Wave 723

It is certainly surprising how the first Samsung Wave handset managed to sell well. With the market already dominated by many other operating systems, it seemed pretty much of a big gamble for the Korean phone maker to create their own mobile platform. And while others may argue that a large bulk of the sales happened within Korea, one cannot help but see the impressive design and work running with the Bada OS.

Anyway, the Bada mobile platform is set to come out in several new devices, and among these phones is the Samsung Wave 723. New to the lineup of Wave handsets, the S7230E is an addition that certainly deserves a little bit of mention.

Admittedly, the specs are not all that impressive –differing only from the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro in minimal details. But there is something about this handset that some users will appreciate; a better camera -the 5 mega pixel camera on the Wave 723 is a notch better than the 3.15 lenses of the Wave 2 phones.

While this will not matter much to most users who simply use the phone for snapshots, the additional specs certainly give the handset better value.

In terms of other hardware features, anyone who has seen the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro will easily see the similarities of the two devices. First off, all of the phones pack a nice 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touch screen display. While this is nowhere near the 4 inch screen of the Galaxy S, it is certainly more practical for the general user.

Expect to get decent quality visuals on the 240 x 400 resolution screen and fast response times from the touch screen interface. For those hesitating with the Bada platform, worry not –the TouchWiz user interface makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable.
