Samsung will promote BADA 2.0 OS, Then after they make a sale, they will leave the program support.
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2011I want to aware peoples that BADA doesn't support VOIP i.e no skype, no fring etc. In my opini... moreYou've never got Bada I suppose. Better try first for few weeks and than make comments.
I want to aware peoples that BADA doesn't support VOIP i.e no skype, no fring etc. In my opinion BADA is the worst of all OS for voip users.
samsung's helding another press conference at Delhi, India on 13-14 this month. www.samsungswaforum.com
If only samsung was a little aggresive to push bada interms of apps and availability region wise, Pretty sure they would have done well. Its a smartphone OS with great potential. But their their laid back attitude for bada and also their strategy to push the andriod line up more will only eventually slow bada in the future.
BADA is dead. I was a big supporter when I got my Wave phone awhile back. But after months of waiting still no skype or Whats App or proper google maps that work with the gps. It's a smartphone lacking the three most important apps which all other phones use!! I am so sick and tired of being around ppl with Apple's and blackberrys and not being able to use whats app. Even nokia have these. They also dont have angry birds. It's a pity as it had potential but i will be getting an iphone once the new one comes out or a android if the iphone takes too long. I know many ppl who will also not get another BADA phone.
v1rtu4l, 10 Apr 2011it's really your own fault, if you are still on bada 1.0... bada 1.2 is available for anyone f... morethe leaked one literally is everywhere. But 1.2 came lately to some areas. Specially in India 1.2 is very late.
i don't have any idea about Bada OS but most of my friends love it, i wonder when Samsung will release Tablet made of Bada OS
SidewindeR, 11 Apr 2011Wow... 2.0... What a joke. History repeats itself and do you all remember OmniaHD? Omnia still... moreYou are right!! Its all over again what happened with Omnia HD, thanks for remind us that, double SHAME!! on samsung, those users are still waiting to have an update for Touchwiz 3.0 and there's a new one coming 4.0, poor people... and us that have the first wave we will suck our thumb waiting to have an update for Bada 2.0 , still have the hope for September but cant trust on samsung anymore... and as the other guy said, dude, you have 1.2 cause your are lucky or cause you risk in flashing your phone, sincerely to update from 1.0 to 1.2 is not worthy, since I've been told that have some issues, that's why I wait for 2.0 and... 2.0 would be global (according to samsung press release) , not just a few countries as samsung just did with 1.2
Hope they make the BADA 2.0 phones with super amoled like wave I and use wolfson(or better) audio chips. Youtube should also be addressed to be streamed perfectly.
I think bada is a great OS. very light, powerful, and stable but I'm not sure how its gonna do against the more established os like android, apple, windows. blackberry and symbian is going down and dead..
v1rtu4l, 10 Apr 2011it's really your own fault, if you are still on bada 1.0... bada 1.2 is available for anyone f... moresome Wave S8500 owners have the S8500T version which uses UMTS850/2100 and their is no Bada 1.2 firmware that provides UMTS850 connectivity hence why those owners cant unofficially update to Bada 1.2.
Personally i have Bada 1.2 on my Wave S8500 and its good.
Wow... 2.0... What a joke. History repeats itself and do you all remember OmniaHD? Omnia still survives because of Open source software a.k.a Symbian. But i don't think Bada will benefit from that luxury either. The best thing samsung can do right now is to release the Bada source code and make it open and let the end users decide what to do with their freakin phones.
1.2 Will not release in india bcoz of two reason if u upgrade 1.2 u will miss the recording conversation and there is also problem in equilizer so it better to go directly 1.0 to 2.0 bcoz everyone has to pay for upgrade bcoz of only 1 year gurentee on any phone
before samsung roll out other batch of phone they should fix the after service here in the phil it took me 3 month to get may s8500 for a refund last year for a phone that i only use for a few day first they told me that the accounting head is out of town then they told me that it has to get approve by there boss after it get approve of a week for replacement they told me that it has on stock then they told me that they will refund it to me it took them a month plus just to do that.
