Looks like a nice phone, but i can't help but look at it like its trying to be like android. Don't shoot me for this, just making a speculation. I'm sure its great.

It's basically like eclair with touchwiz. No lte no dual cores but neither does wp7 or blackberry. The only other OS is ios because iPhone got dual cores but still no lte

It does looks similar to Samsungs Android phones, since they both use touchwiz (i think). But bada doesn't look anything like stock Android.

Bada is a cheap Android. No offense peter. Just accept it. They would probably sell it to south korea government for their own OS.

Cmon, it's 3-4 am where Peter is :P
Also, looks like TW4, but I guess that can be expected.

I don't see a difference between this bada and android.

I would have actually considered buying this if it weren't for Bada. The hardwear is excellent. it has a 4-inch bloody Amoled screen. All the other android manufacturers are too cheap to put Amoled screens into their products. Call me insane, but the best display I've ever seen on a smartphone (not counting sharpness) would have to be the Amoled Clearblack on the Nokia E7. (YES I have seen the Galaxy Sll screen.) If nothing else at least Nokia can produce good hardwear and good screens. But back to the topic, where is Peter?

Why does bada make you not buy this phone ?
bada has more functions than even IOS and WP7 has so i don't see your point.

you realize this is a rebranded and slightly over clocked GalaxyS-1 right? lol you can find them anywhere for cheap, and bada free.

Agreed. But the hardware is prettier!

Looks like Peter is disappointed that Nada I mean Bada is not the greatest thing since sliced bread and his beloved OS doesn't support tablets, Bada is not that advanced after all
28. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
bada is advanced. the reason they said it was not coming on tablets is either:
1. they know that Windows 8 will dominate the tablet market, therefore they see no reason with coming with a bada tablet.
2. they are working on a bada tablet, but only the top management knows about this.

1... hahaha, although possible, it is not likely
2... how in the world would you know anything about that?

2... HAH! Got a link to support that? I'd be interested to know...

no, its the same "insider" that he says he talked to that says google is going to push away all its manufacturing partners and go moto-google only.
its called.. he puts on a tin foil hat and talks to himself. :)
48. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
first, i'm not saying that google is going to push away it's partners. I'm saying that google's partners will leave Android and go for their own OSes. You will see this happen in 1/2 years, even though they are working on it right now, but it takes some time to release all the phones the manufacturers have in the pipeline.
I'm not going to give any links for my insider info, but i can assure you i do have some insider info.

I would probably like it if a lot if the OEM's managed to develop their own OS's... more choices. However, I doubt that it will happen that way. Has your "insider" ever predicted anything that turned out to become the truth?
56. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
My insider info has predicted several things in the mobile world that has been true ; )

63. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
that would never happen.. at some point its unsustainable. Too many different OS's means too much money put into everyone having to R&D their own OSs, make their own apps, so on and so forth. Also, if you were an app developer, would you spend your time making apps for 1 or 2 OS's that make up 60-80% of the market place, or 5 OS's that barely make up the other 20% combined?
People go where the apps are these days, which is why most of these boutique OS's will eventually fail.... including bada if it doesnt show real progress soon.
Samsung may want to push their own OS, but they can push all they want, if they cant get the market to buy it, they will dump it like a dirty diaper. Right now there are 3 huge obstacles in its way.. iOS, Android, and itself. The first 2 for obvious reasons, the third because bada looks so close to every other samsung android handset and is priced similarly. To the laymen that doesnt know any better looking at a galaxyS and a Wave3, which are essentially the same device, they will go for the galaxyS almost every time. Brand recognition, OS recognition, google navigation, and 300k apps vs 6k apps.
If bada wants to succeed, it needs to stop looking like a touchwiz enabled android phone and differentiate.
Peter may not wish it to be so, but it is so.
