Samsung this week announced two new entry-level Bada 2.0 powered smartphones. The Samsung Wave Y and Samsung Wave M

Samsung Wave M and Wave Y announced

The Samsung Wave 3 was announced two days ago and Samsung are now following up with two more Bada 2.0 powered smartphones. Samsungs new naming convention introduces earlier tells us that the Y - Young is an entry level model and the M - Magical is a mid-tier model.

Both the two Wave models has a 832 MHz processor, TouchWiz and the new ChatOn messaging system from Samsung. The Samsung Wave M is little larger with a 3.65 inch 320x480 pixel TFT display while Wave Y has a 3.2 inch 320 x 480 pixel display. There is no Super AMOLED on these entry level smartphones. The available memory of 150 MB seems low, but the Bada requirement might be different from phones running on Android and Windows Phone operating system. Wave M has a 5 megapixel camera while Wave Y only has 2 megapixel.

Samsung has included Samsung Kies phone management software for Windows and Mac, Music Hub for music purchasing, Social Hub with Facebook and Twitter integration and the new ChatOn messaging service where users can send text, video and images to other phones for free.
