before giving up on the Bada OS samsung should to think about the customers who are currently using Bada 2.0 OS on Wave 3 and continuously looking up for upgrades/firmware upgrades from Bada 2.0 to Android 4.1.2, Tizen OS features sounds good but can it be possible to upgrade it on Samsung Wave 3 ROM ????????

i can count how many htc users not using sense UI.
Same goes for i can count how many samsung users sticking to touchwiz.

If touchwiz is so good why change the UI to like the fabled GO launcher?
Touchwiz was a flop and still a flop.
I have yet to see any knowledgable smartphone samsung users that stuck through touchwiz cause practically all of them change their UI majority being the much lighter weighted GO launcher.

From where all those customization in the Galaxy Note series come then? Have you seen what they've done there? I know a lot of people praise HTC for Sense, but Samsung moved pass that.

If I were Sammy, I will focus on windows 8 phone and make it better than Nokia Lumia.

Window 8 needs some major overhaul to make it more exciting and attractive. First thing is to get rid of Metro user I/F.

samsung bada sucks, proves samsung is a big looser when considering software but is doing fine in hardware so just stick to hardware developement and leave the sioftware issue to the pro's

bada phones... lolz
tizen isnt going to be better, much as fans anticipate it, strictly speaking its not a true meego at all.
Do some research and find out, its only a branchout of meego and does not have all core meego.

Bada had potential like symbian, but they make it so androidish that it now just looks like another android ripoff.

Sad! We were fools to invest in bada and make it 3rd most used OS mobile platform. I doubt in future i will ever put my hard earned money in tizen.

Not one update for my Wave One in the two years I had it. Finally moved on to Android.
Stick to hardware Samsung, and don't make promises you aren't going to keep.
