JK Shin, President of Samsung Electronics' Mobile Communications Business, said "The Samsung Wave represents our strategy to deliver rich, exciting smartphone experiences to everyone. This launch will make our platform vision a reality and consumers, developers and operators will experience the freedom of choice that bada enables."
