Samsung S8600 Wave 3 launches globally today, live pics inside

Today Samsung announced that its new Bada flagship, the S8600 Wave 3 is hitting the shelves around the world. The smartphone, which was announced at the end of August is making its market debut just in time for the holiday shopping spree.

Samsung didn't quote the price of the Wave 3, but a quick search around online shops did the trick. The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 is currently going for about €280 after taxes in Europe, which seems like quite a decent bargain considering the package you are getting.

The Samsung S8600 Wave 3 is built around a 4" Super AMOLED of WVGA resolution and runs Bada OS 2.0 on a 1.4GHz Scorpion processor. A 5-megapixels auto-focus camera with LED flash and 720p video recording @30fps should cater for your photography needs, while a VGA front-facing snapper enables video-chatting.

Symbian Belle unofficially out for the Nokia C7

Nokia has promised to update its older models (currently running Symbian Anna) to Belle. But if you have a Nokia C7 and are envious of the Belle-running Nokia 701, you can update your phone right now, unofficially, of course.

A leaked image of the Belle update for the C7 surfaced online and can be flashed on the phone using the Phoenix tool. The version of the image is Nokia C7 RM-675 Original RC Belle 111.030.0607 and you need to have Anna on the phone first.
Here's a video that shows the flashing process:

Such DIY flashes always carry some risk, so you might want to wait until the official update is out. Several models are already on Nokia's list to be updated to Belle soon but the Nokia C7 and C6-01 are not on the list (this seems to be region specific).

Anyway, after the update, the Nokia C7 will get pretty close to the 701 experience - but keep in mind you won't get the 1GHz processor, the extra RAM or the bright ClearBlack LCD. Check out how Belle runs on the Nokia N8 (unofficially updated) in this video from August.
