Samsung Bada and Galaxy S Officially Coming to Vodafone

Looks like Vodafone is trying to keep up the whole “we’ve got good phones” thing, and they’re doing a pretty good job of it, too. According to the wireless carrier’s site, both prodigal Samsung handsets are going to be making their way to store shelves, both digital and brick-and-mortar, here in the near future. Good news for anyone on Vodafone
wanting a new device, and, truthfully, both of them are amazing pieces of gadgetry.

The Samsung Wave is the first Samsung handset to rock their proprietary mobile Operating System called Bada. It’s got a 3.3-inch Super AMOLED display, with an 800×480 display. The phone is pretty thin, and remarkably responsive. And while we didn’t get a lot of time with it, be sure to check out our hands-on time to see if this device is something you’d be interested in.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S, this is a device that we’ve covered in all sorts of different ways here. This is the original version, and it’s packing a large 4-inch screen, the same Super AMOLED technology that’s on the Samsung Wave, and it’s got Android under the hood. Thankfully, it’s Android 2.1. Also, the processor, codenamed Hummingbird, is apparently the fastest on the market right now, beating even the standard 1GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. Which, obviously, we can’t wait to actually test out.

The two sites that Vodafone have launched are intended to measure the general interest of its wireless customers based on the two handsets future availability. This might mean that only one handset gets launched, but we doubt that’s what Vodafone is planning here. Besides, we imagine that both devices are going to get their fair share of interest, with plenty of clicked buttons to prove it. If you’re under the Vodafone umbrella, be sure to head over there and tell them what you think.
