Samsung Wave 723…not good enough for the U.S?

Samsung has recently announced a new smartphone entering their lineup,  the Samsung Wave 723.  No exact date has been set, but the Wave should be released to the public sometime in September of 2010.  The phone will cost around 240 euros (or around $300).

The Wave itself has a very nice metallic look, but unfortunatly there is a leather flap covering the front of the phone connected at the bottom.  To me, this does not sound very convenient.  Sure, people like to protect their phones from scratched and what not but that’s why companies make cases, to give the owner the option of purchasing one or not.

The phone will have a 3.2 inch touch screen display, GPS, Wi-Fi capability, and Bluetooth.  Not only that, but the Wave will also have a 5 megapixel camera with flash and a 3.5mm headphone jack which is becoming popular among smartphones.  The down side to this phone is the small amount of internal storage.  The Wave has 90MB of storage while other smartphones, such as the Nokia N8, have around 16GB of internal storage with options of upgrading to around 48GB.

The phone is said to be heading to Germany and later will go to parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa.  Even though it will be available in all of these other countries, it most likely won’t make its way to the US because of the hype of the Iphone and Android devices.  So if you are interested in getting this phone, your only option as of right now may be to get it on their online store.
