Samsung’s next generation bada phone, the Samsung Wave 3, wasn’t given a release date when it was announced together with the Wave M and Wave Y phones last month. But today at the bada developer day in India, a Samsung executive confirmed a release date for the Wave 3. The Samsung Wave 3 will be released in Europe sometime next month. No word on a US release date, but seeing […]
It was rumored that Samsung might be digging into their cash reserves to bring webOS, the failed platform from HP, under their wings. Well, good thing Samsung CEO Choi Gee Sung decided to rubbish such rumors at IFA 2011 in Berlin that the South Korean company would “never” pursue a deal.While it seems that “acquiring an operating system is becoming a fashion”, Samsung themselves have their own Bada mobile operating […]
Almost a week ago we posted a teaser video by Samsung that well, basically teased us as to what we can expect at IFA. Thanks to a curious Android developer who poked their nose around Samsung’s Unpacked app’s APK, we now know that Samsung has plans to unveil three new devices at IFA this year.
While bada might not be the biggest deal over in this part of the world, it does have its place in the European and Asian market. Samsung has just announced the SDK for the latest version of the operating system. First shown off at MWC 2011 in February this year, the updated SDK takes advantage of a lot of new features and improvements that are introduced in bada 2.0.
Yesterday, a Lithuanian site was believed to have discovered Samsung’s roadmap for 2011 which pointed out a number of exciting devices that will be arriving later this year, including some new Bada 2.0 phones, and a new high-end Samsung device that packs a full HD (1280 x 720) resolution display. Other devices leaked include a new 7″ tablet that is said to replace the original Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Samsung’s bada 2.0 operating system is slated to hit the markets this coming July – starting from India, of all places, according to Financial Express. So far, the bada OS hasn’t really picked up as much steam as Samsung would have liked, and is more or less reserved for their entry level as well as mid-range handsets. Samsung executive Dipesh Shah of Samsung India claims that the company intends to […]
[MWC] Samsung might be churning out some pretty mean Android-powered smartphones at the moment, but that doesn’t mean the consumer electronics giant is not going to concentrate on their in-house developed mobile operating system platform that is bada. Over at MWC, Samsung did show bada some love by parading the next major update of the operating system to developers, where we can expect bada 2.0 to deliver multitasking capability, push […]
Despite Android and other platforms taking center stage nowadays, Samsung is still focusing on its bada OS’ future and the Korean giant has confirmed that it plans to support it strongly.

Samsung intends for its Bada OS to gain more momentum perhaps by announcing yet another Bada OS-powered smartphone, the Wave II S8530. Beware of its naming convention though, since some people might mistake it to be the Wave 2 S5250 by accident. Meant to see off the Wave S8500, the Wave II does share many looks with its predecessor, although your eyes ought to benefit from a more generous 3.7-inches […]
Samsung’s maiden outing when it comes to the bada operating system comes in the form of the Wave S8500, and it has just hit a new milestone in the European market, having moved more than 1 million units worth in terms of sales – this coming after hitting the European continent four months ago. What could have spurred the S8500’s sales? Perhaps people see the bang for their buck (Euro, […]

[Mobile World Congress 2010] Samsung has just announced the Samsung Wave, and I was fortunate to get my hands on it for a short time – not long enough to provide anything remotely close to a review, but sufficiently to write a “first impressions” post. The device is solidly built and the crown’s jewel is the new AMOLED display (call it AMOLED 2 if you want), which is better than […]
