Samsung's new Bada flagship, the Samsung Wave 3, expected to launch next month
According to Samsung Hub, at the Bada Developer Day event held in India, Samsung said that its next Bada flavored flagship model, the Samsung Wave 3, will launch next month. At the event, the South Korean manufacturer did not say precisely which market would be the first to receive the device (most likely a European country), nor did it comment on pricing. The manufacturer did say that the Wave 3 (model S8600) would launch in India in November.

As we reported, the specs on the Bada 2.0 powered Samsung Wave 3 are top-notch for the most part. The event in India didn't really add anything new to the specs list except to let us know that Samsung won't be monkeying around with the screen on this device; the 4 inch display will be made of Gorilla Glass.

At the same time, Samsung executive Dipesh Shah put the kibosh on those hoping for a Bada powered tablet. The Shah of Samsung said that the OS was designed for affordable smartphones, not for tablets.
