Samsung Bada 2 Release Date July 2011?

By Jamie Pert - Apr 8, 2011

Last year Samsung released the Samsung Wave S8500, this smartphone was pretty unique as it was the first-ever bada-based handset to hit the shelves, now we are hearing that bada 2.0 could be on its way.

Nothing has been officially confirmed, however a recent article posted on SamsungHub (who sourced their information from Financial Express) suggests that bada 2.0 could arrive in July. We don’t doubt this as developers released the bada 2 alpha back in February.

Most recent Samsung smartphones have either ran Android or Windows Phone 7, therefore many thought that the bada operating system’s days were numbered, however sales in India are said to be pretty impressive.

You can see a video here which appears to show the Samsung Wave II running bada 2.0, on the whole the OS looks pretty good, however you can tell that it is in its early stages. Comments on YouTube suggest that bada 2.0 may be compatible with the original Wave, however we cannot officially confirm this just yet.

With release information finally being revealed we would love to hear what you expect from bada 2.0, we must confess we have no hands-on time with any bada-based devices, however hands-on videos look pretty neat. What features and improvements would you like to see when Samsung release bada 2.0?

  • Ok, first of all, Wave need, I would say, badly need, a decent dialer, otherwise it is a peace of scrap compared to nokia C5. I own both and after first amusement over Wave’s decent look and performance, had to switch back to Nokia C5 as managing numerous contacts and dialing with Wave is nightmare.
