Year: 2010

Billed as a feature phone, but totally smart, the Wave stood as the first phone to feature Samsung's new Bada Operating System. It had a fast 1GHz processor, LED flash, distinctive design that was thinner and lighter than most of smartphones. With rumors implying Samsung is working on another OS and ditching the Android platform, don't be surprised if you hear the Bada-operated phone come up in coversation over the next year.
