Samsung's Wave devices approaching 10 million sales
Samsung’s Bada-powered Wave series of phones that premiered in May of 2010 will more than likely reach the 10 million sale plateau before the end of the year.

Samsung first introduced the Wave S8500 last year. It was the first of its kind to feature the Bada operating system. It also featured Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface that has been made popular on their wide array of Android handsets.

There are a few more devices being added to the Wave line, all of which are powered by the Bada OS. The additions of the Wave M, Wave Y and the Wave 3 will more than help Samsung reach the 10 million sale plateau before the year is over. You can expect these handsets to become available in early Q4, although that is not official. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

That's good news for a OS which is still new to the market, I would love to get the Wave 3.

Yes the wave 3 looks rather nice. Bada is definitely improving and I need some Super AMOLED PLUS goodness. couple that with a slim but well built body and samsung could have a winner.

I know couple of my friends who owns a Samsung Wave. They both have a lot of problems. Headset slot being loose, restarts by itself and some other s**t.

yea, because all Bada phones reaching 10 million after nearly 2 years is going to take over android when they have 1 phone that reaches 10 million in 6 months. :)

the Samsung Galaxy S 2 passed those sales, and its just one device ;)
but, good for bada though! tried a bada handset( the one with the slideout keyboard, don't remember which one), and it was quite good!

Lol I know Peter is very happy to see this. Bada is doing well for itself but hoping it surpasses Android- now that's being overly enthusiastic

no there aren't! 10.000.000 is the number samsung expects by the end of the year. and most of them aren't as crazy as peter is. a big part regrets buying a bada phone.

Peter maybe not surpass but it will give it a run for its money lol.. I hope bada OS does show huge improvement in the next few years it would be awesome if they went open and integrated from other great open source system like it did with a few Library's i has used in bada..
