Gartner Inc. predicts Andr(av)oid will surge to 14% of the global smartphone market in 2012 ahead of the iPhone, as well as Windows Mobile and BlackBerry smartphones.
In 2012 market will be
Symbian: 203 million handsets, 39 percent of the market; Google Android: 76 million handsets, 14.5 percent of the market; Apple iPhone OS: 71.5 million handsets, 13.7 percent of the market; Windows Mobile: 66.8 million handsets, 12.8 percent of the market; RIM BlackBerry OS: 65.25 million handsets, 12.5 percent of the market; Linux variants: 28 million handsets, 5.4 percent of the market; Palm webOS: 11 million handsets, 2.1 percent of the market.
Database giant Oracle has launched a legal action against Google, alleging that the company infringes seven patents it owns related to Java.
Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google, was formerly a chief technical officer for Sun Microsystems. Sun Microsystems was bought by Oracle.
The move is interesting because when Sun Microsystems was a separate entity it promoted Java as an open source option.
Google never formally took out a licence from Sun Microsystems, while Java is widely used in a large number of applications created by other vendors. The law suit will cause other manufacturers to wonder whether Oracle will start a patent hunt against them.
The move prompted the Wall Street Journal to remind its readers that Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, is a friend of Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple.
Apple considers Android to be a considerable threat to the iPhone and the Google OS continues to grow its market share as an OS for smartphones.

So PeoPLe dont go for andr(av)oid ... always stay away from it.. U will be left alone in the future...
Google is already dealing with a lawsuit from Oracle and attacks on Open Handset Alliance members for perceived patent violations in Android products. Google can throw another set of legal papers onto the pile as Gemalto has filed a patent infringement suit concerning Android.
Gemalto alleges that Google, HTC, Motorola, and Samsung violate Gemalto’s patents in the Dalvik virtual machine. Android uses Dalvik to virtualize Java, which prompted Oracle to file a complaint against Google in August; now Gemalto claims that Dalvik infringes upon technology it developed in Texas in the 1990’s. The complaint was filed in the Eastern District of Texas.

Best phone on the market but only pb is not so good camera. Many pictures are blurred don't know why, or are overexposed because of flash too strong.
Heard that Bada 1.2 will correct that. Is it true ?
i am not from n8 forum..lol
i hate symbian, so do i hate bada too...
i am android lover not symbian...
though cameara of n8 and many other features are better tahn wave.......
but atleast symbian is not an infntile os, so crappy like bada, .. bada is good for nothing....
i think u people go and give bj to bada co. workers...
in speed: bada > symbian(not much)
in usability, symbian>>>>>>>> bada (very much)
and android is graete in speed and usability better than both of these......
android>> symbian >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> bada....
and usability matters ,..
whats the use of speed when there is no use...
waev is like fearrari with tata engine...
and others are like any car with ferrari engine....lol
When you realise that people will buy this phone even more after your posts.I am one of them.You know that someone is successfull if he has so many enemies and trool.That just confirme how powerfull this phone is and how popular.report this scambag guys
and i may add that a p-hone dealer will never disclose faults of his fones(if there ne)..n wave is one of the best phones..who r buying this fone now, they know how feature rich phone it is..some days ago some samsung haters were telling samsung will stop making bada phones..but after announcing many bada phones their mouth got shut..so get lost..
[deleted post]i think he is the guy from nokia n8 forum..everybody is talking about this phone..even though i want to by new high-end phones as i m obsessed with mobile phones, i want to keep this phone..best video,sound,easy to use,user friendly os,many features r inbuilt in wave where in other phones u have to buy apps to use those features..some ppl like u r trying to misguide ppl dont know y..every fone has its pros n cons..but wat u r saying about some software prblm..its not true..
this is the monkey who write posts against wave all the time.Don't worry guys.my friend is good hacker and he is working to find his ip address.After that,he will find the his real address after hacking his interner provider
wave is sooooooo popular.this phone is out of stock everywhere.It is easier to find diamonds these days then this phone.I totaly understand all those people because this is monster for such cheap price.Everyone around me has this phone.Wavemania are all over the world.Samsung has destroyed other companies with this amazing phone.Bada is the operating system of the future.Screen is out of this world.Speed is from some other dimension.Beauty is uncomparable.Built quality is just masterpiece.

[deleted post]Hi dude, Fixed my earphone issue,
its the matter of worst reception of FM radio by night time,, and the music is feel is awesome .. i rate it 10/10 with no doubt...
if you want to save battery, try this:
1)If you have problem with battery, go to service menu *#197328640# and go to (8) Common.
In next menu go to (8) DVFS Configuration and press 3 (200mhz) and with this downclock your battery is MUCH longer! This is only for standby,otherwise put on 800mhz or 600 mhz
The battery back up depends on what mode u choose. If u have selected CP UART mode ur battery wont last long for more than 2 days, and if ur mode is AP UART ur battery will last long for atleast 3.5 days. First of all u should know what is CP & AP mode. CP UART mode, which uses the CPU to its full use. In this mode u can really see the performance, but u have to give ur battery backup. In AP UART mode the CPU is not at its full use and hence ur battery can last long for more than 3 days. But in this mode the performance will not be up to the mark.
To change the mode dial *#8740#
3)turn off gps
4) turn off wi fi
5)turn off social updates
6)reduce screen brightness
7)dont't use 3G, put on gsm
8)put some dark wallpaper
9)dont' use widgets
10)battery depends of processor fluctuation, sometimes processor usage will be 1% in idle mode, but sometimes will go to 40% even you turn off all this things.I have restarted my phone, but again it goes to 40%,tommorow it was 1%.I don't know why is that happening.I hope that some new updates will solve this problem.i use bada 1.2
Rajesh, 25 Oct 2010I bought this phone last week. Very good phone. In previous I used only Nokia phone. But this ... moreBattery life increases as you use
i had the same problem in the beginning but i get 3 to 4 days with moderate usage
