Samsung's first Bada phone, the Wave, shows up early

Oh, Mobile World Congress — how we love thee. You’re still a few days away, and already word of new handsets is trickling out.

The guys at TheUnwired just caught this billboard going up in Barcelona, showing what appears to be the world’s first Bada phone: the Samsung Wave. There’s not a whole lot to be gleaned from the ad, outside of the fact that it’s got a camera, what looks like a touchscreen display, and that it is, of course, running Bada. Samsung’s got a press announcement scheduled for this Sunday – expect to see this one make an appearance.

Be sure to tune in for all of our Mobile World Congress coverage, beginning February 15th.
