First, I don't... moreeven the undisputed king Apple is forced to bring out dual core A5 1GHz processor against Sammy's dual core Exynos A9 1.2Ghz processor & Nvidia's Tegra 2!!

Anonymous, 25 Apr 2011+1 for this guy.. samsung is dead slow..don't u know "slow & steady always wins the race"! for ex. look at Android, when they began their journey where they were, how they were & suddenly after 3 yrs later they r now top of the Symbian & even Apple OS! so u see when every new OS began their journey makes slow progress & only in times they catch up the rest. Bada will also catch up whether u like it or not..
Sushi, 25 Apr 2011Don't you read what people mention on the opnion wall, 2.0 is coming in April for EMEA region,... moreYou are so disturbed. May be YOU work for Samsung. Sorry to hurt your loyalty.
First, I don't see any relevance of discussing about Nokia phones. I was talking about bada OS not Nokia or Samsung phones. Samsung phones under Android flagship are doing great and have deadly specs in terms of hardware. It's the bada OS that is not keeping up to with the user expectations. You can see Samsung's energies being channeled towards Android.
Coming to the early days of Android, those were early days for smart phone technologies itself. iOS was the undisputed king; Android caught up well and is now a serious contender for apple. Now, the technologies are open to everyone. So don't compare the early days of Android and Bada. I am still saying Bada is a great OS and has great potential to be the number one but is not getting enough effort from Samsung.
Coming to the claims that 2.0 will come on so and so date/month/year, we have seen enough of that. Get us simple things man - a VOIP app, better memory management.
Hope people think rationally.
Don't you read what people mention on the opnion wall, 2.0 is coming in April for EMEA region, except India. Which will get 2.0 update in the month of July/September.
That's one reason I tell all people in here is " First learn how read before you write!"

Have a look around you since Nokia E series and E72 series they wouldn't update their processors to 800Mhz or 1Ghz, point 2 they offer amoled screens and fixed focus camera that can't do anything beyond what Fuji camera's did back in the 70's and third point, what did you say the cost of Nokia New phones in comparision to a Super-amoled screen with 1ghz processor and that supports PowerVR SGX540 GPU which is top of the line graphics that offer 95million triangles persecond for $380?
Coming back to Bada: Do some homework on Google, offered cupcake 1.2 version which had nothing except for that touchflo stuff which you get on HTC WM6.1 phone for half the price, Androids phone how expensive were they when the launched roughly about $450 t $600 it did not offer bluetooth connectivity, though the devices were bluetooth enabled, flash support wasn't there until eclair that too after 1year and 8 months after the release. Forget multi-tasking the phone would freez this bug was taken care of in the second version of cupcake.
Give things some time boy!! If you really want it that quick go get a job at Samsung tell them they are so many crack pots like you waiting for some quick update.

So tell me what's taking them so long to provide updates? They gave 1.2 after 1 yr and what does it have? Some people are even thinking If it is worth updating to 1.2. Don't you think that in this fast paced competitive world, there is no place for slow movers? Even samsung has cut the supply of super amoled screen from bada phones and providing for android phones.
How long should I wait? Another 1 yr to get rid of memory issues and voip?
This is a forum for opinions and I have given mine. I am sure a lot of people will also agree with me. you may stick to this phone for your whole life but others have to move on. when bada is good people will surely come back.
XD, 25 Apr 2011whenever u see 3G that means those device support video calls. this beauty also support.Thanks for replay.

Thanks for the reply, but I have genuine 8 gb sandisk class 4 card that I bought with bill and warranty so I assume there could be hardly any fault with the card. it is doing fine with the laptop.
I shall be very thankful to you if you please tell me what problem exactly you face with your card and how your wave or it,s display behave and how did you come to know that your card is fauly and there is no problem with your handset.

Don't go all Awww about it once you see ad TV Advert go to forums check youtube for video review before you buy it!
Second thing Android was in the same situation Bada and WM7 is when it released, din't have bluetooth, radio no nothing. So give Bada some time and when its ripe you buy the phone. You don't seem to know what bada is honestly, ur just mobile surfer who likes to buy every phone that comes into the market. Do some home work on Bada OS.
In multiple video's on youtube people who reviewed this phone said it still has memory issues. Why you crying out loud about it?
Go buy an Android to realize later that Bada is actually Android + Touchwiz 2.0Ver working on the same Linux Kernel as Android is!
chaitanya, 25 Apr 2011Is this device will support video calls?whenever u see 3G that means those device support video calls. this beauty also support.
