Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a leading mobile phone provider today announced the launch of the Samsung Wave (Model: S8500) to be made available in Kenya through Kenya's leading mobile service provider Safaricom.

The Samsung Wave is the first mobile handset to be released on Samsung’s new, open mobile platform, Samsung bada, and the cornerstone of the company’s commitment to provide a smartphone for every lifestyle.

The Samsung Wave offers a Super AMOLED 3.3” display that makes the screen truly come alive, a Social Hub to bring you closer to your contacts and connections, and TouchWiz 3.0 for an intuitive and hugely customizable user interface.

The Wave’s high-speed CPU ensures swift, smooth application experiences and multi-tasking, making the device an always-on mobile multimedia companion. The Samsung Wave has been built to offer users an unrivalled level of performance, customization and choice in how they connect with their world.

“The Samsung Wave truly demonstrates our commitment to deliver rich, connected and innovative Smartphone experiences to everyone,” said Robert Ngeru, Samsung Electronics Nairobi Office Deputy Managing Director. “Samsung Wave sees our platform vision become a reality. For the first time, developers have the freedom to create applications across multiple platforms, for consumption on a huge range of devices. In the Wave, our developer partners can see the ocean of opportunity that is offered by the bada mobile platform and our device technology,” he said.

We are very excited to have partnered with Safaricom to make this product nationally available for Kenyans. The Samsung wave will be retailing exclusively at Safaricom outlets countrywide for Ksk 29,999 and will come with 100MB Free data and Ksh 1000 free airtime.
