Samsung: more and cheaper bada-based handsets on the way

Samsung: more and cheaper bada-based handsets on the way
We know we will have to wait longer until we finally see the Samsung Wave S8500 hit the shelves, but we guess many of you are asking themselves "Will there be affordable devices based on Samsung's bada platform?". Fortunately, the answer appears to be „Yes”.

Samsung has revealed part of their plans relating to more cell phones based on bada at a dedicated event in Russia. It seems the newly announced handsets with the operating system will roll out with price tags in the range $340 - $685, meaning the Wave still remains the most expensive member of the new family. A slide from the presentation shows four cell phones, two of them with QWERTY keyboards, although it's still anyone's guess whether the real devices look like this. Moreover, the scraps of information do not reveal any details about the names of the new bada-based handsets.

The Samsung Wave S8500 did impress us, so we just cannot wait to get our hands on the new cell phones with bada. We hope we get to unearth more details about them soon and we would certainly not say "no" to more information about their specifications.
