thanks and regards
No... Both this phone's don't support BADA applications. This is a Java phone and you can find some applications supporting these phone in the internet.
If you need good applications (free & Paid) go for Symbian or Android phone. Bada also have good applications, but still it can't beat Symbian / Android.
In Symbian, you can go for Nokia 5233. This is a good mobile but the loudspeaker volume is less. You miss the ringer in crowded places. The price is almost same as Samsung Star / GD 510. Just pay Rs.1000/- more, you can get Nokia 5230 which is a 3g mobile and all other specs are same as 5233.
Or You may go to Android arena. You can chose Samsung Galaxy 3. It's a very nice phone but the cost is around Rs. 12500/-. Or wait for few days to release Galaxy 5 which will cost Rs.9500/-
