@all:
This blurry thumbnails thing is a software issue and will be addressed by Samsung soon. Those screaming "Replace the phone" are idiots who probably don't even own it.
I bought mine yesterday for 17,700 in AP. The phone's such a runaway success that its already out of stock in some places. Everything about this phone is good. I had apprehensions about super lcd but they are gone. Its simply awesome. Samsung Kies is also good, better than itunes infact(I own an itouch and trust me, I know)
Screen, features etc etc everything is good. The browser's just average though. I hope some more developers make some independent browsers soon. Samsung is giving the apps of the bada developer challenge free for a month. Grab yours quickly.
The appstore is small, but given the rate at which bada is growing, thanks to the wave I and the multitute of other smaller siblings, the appstore will be fully furnished soon.
Cam's awesome. Cam apps are great. Aug Reality games are also good.
In short, this phone is man's gift to manking. Buy it now or you will regret like me when the Wave I went out of stock.

Jaspreet, 05 Jan 2011HEy Can anyone tell me why the thumbnail view of images on my wa... moreIt's same for me as well. The thumbnail view of the images are not very clear and crispy like the original display.

But I reckon it's an issue (if u consider it like so) with Samsung mobiles.

I have another Samsung cell. Even if it is a very basic CDMA model with only a 1.3 MP cam, its thumbnail view of images does not produce very clear and crispy blocks of small image inside the entire screen in comparison with the original display of images which are very clear.

It's a problem with proper resizing of original images fitting into the 800 X 480 screen while they are dispalyed as thumbnails. And I reckon mostly that it does not affect any functionality of this wonderful handheld which is vastly important.

But I look forward into this issue further and I'll update here soon.

as you are already a proud user of wave ii.
i wanted to know
is multitasking possible in wave ii?
secondly in web browser section- as found in nokia n series when you are browsing you can download in background and simultaneously you can browse web pages.
is this facility available in wave ii?
this matters me much.

Ruban, 04 Jan 2011Thanks for responding me. Do you have any themes for our wave II... moreThere are few free Wave II themes in Samsung Apps. Those cannot be downloaded into my PC, they get downloaded and installed straight into the handheld.

There are 3 different ways to download and install those into your handheld...

1. Access Samsung Apps directly into your handheld by using mobile internet via your service provider. You will be charged for this by your service provider.

2. Go to any area where Wi-Fi is enabled for free and can be accessed freely (not asked for password while enabling Wi-Fi in your handheld) and access Samsung Apps.

3. Install Samsung Kies into a internet enabled PC (better not to do it in a Cyber Cafe... they are dens of viruses). Connect your handheld to the PC through data cable provided with the Wave II and access Samsung Apps via Samsung Kies.

Then search for themes and install whatever you like there...

Ask me if you find any problem. Better email me @ sg.abhishek@gmail.com if you wont find any reply soon. Because after buying Wave II on 1st Jan I check this forum hardly once per day.

purchased this phone 4 days ago in delhi,camera is simply awesome and sound quality is great in earphones.
strong metal built,battery backup is also good,
for the very 1st time phone should be charged for 4-5hours (even if battery full msg is shown).
screen is as good as a samoled.
loving every minute of it,m in love with my phone...!
