Although the screen may work fine, the phone itself has some serious issues. Which makes it almost useless.
One thing is the nubmer recognition. It just doesn't recognize the numbers, or doesn't know how to match it to the contacts. Idiotic.
And the supporting software...Kies...I'm sure there's a language in which this word means something bad. Don't. Just one word: don't.
Samsung Rocks!!!, 22 Mar 2011I found update BADA OS 1.2.1 SDK from http://www.bada.com/
Is this the upgrade for wave to ... moredude, watch out carefully
What u have posted is silly and ametuerish..
Samsung never told whether BADA 2.0 will come to any of the older waves (this includes Wave I , II , 723, 525 or whatever..) Only "TIME" will tell that. Given Sammy's reputation in providing updates - one can say it would never come..
U say Wave II will get 2.0 and not sure about Wave I !!! They both have almost identical hardware specifications which decide thier ability to handle and update/upgrade. So ur assumption is wrong. If Wave II get's a shit then Wave I too can get it.
And coming to SDK; it is not OS update. Know the basics first. It is tool kit provided for App developers to create and test thier own apps b4 publishing. It has got nothing to do with 1.2 update for Wave.

Is this the upgrade for wave to become BADA OS 1.2? Have anyone tried using this?

If only they can get the update sooner. Btw, WAVE 2 can be updated to BADA 2.0, but I'm not sure for WAVE; Whats the big difference in BADA 2.0?
