bada's ecosystem is growing. for the Wave 2 there is already over 6500 apps and growing (after bada 2.0 was announced i have seen a huge growth in the number of apps on samsungapps).
And bada has more marketshare than WP7, so bada's ecosystem is not bad.

Bada most certainly does have a growing ecosystem. Samsung is letting it develop as the market allows. They are not over reaching with it, trying to force it where they do not think it can compete yet. That is why I think it will continue to grow. This is regardless of what your mortal enemy, WP7, does on mobile phones. W7 could have a great year next year with tons of new markets and new manufacturers and Microsoft spending millions to promote it. But, that has nothing to do with Bada. I am cheering for Samsung to make smart decision and support it, because I know it will benefit you. But I just wish you would quite being negative on other systems.

I see on your profile that you live in the US.
The wave phones are unlocked. I think you should be able to buy a wave phone on internet stores like ebay or amazon (i don't think the carriers in the US have any wave phones). I suggest you do a bit of searching and you should definitely be able to buy a unlocked wave phone.

For anyone who is knocking Peter:
As a very loyal reader of Phone Arena since about summer 2010, I can say that this time last year there was no mention of the Bada OS anywhere on our site. Not only that, it was a different web site I found references to Bada, and I had to look it up online to find any info about it. I started mentioning it about the time WeBOS was being touted by HP when the hot debate was how much room there was for W7, WeBOS, and MeeGo to grow in the shadow of RIM, Apple, and Android (Other readers hear had heard of it, I did not introduce it or anything, Do not mean to make it sound like I did).
Since Peter has shown up, Bada is now a common topic here, is mentioned by Phone Arena writers often, and there are over 60 comments and going strong on the new Wave device that has no chance getting released on the U.S. market. I would say the man has had some influence in getting Bada in our mind, huh?

"I would say the man has had some influence in getting Bada in our mind, huh?"
That's my point, to make bada a well known OS : )

Hurry up and get hired by Samsung to promote bada officaly Peter, Just have them refer to PA so they can see your PR skills haha.
I havent used BADA so I have no opinion of it, but sense it looks like a android I can imagine its not a bad os.

unfortunately peter isnt making it a positive experience for most. too much of a good thing is a bad thing, they say.

and what makes you think it is not a positive experience for most ?

Guys I've Been Waiting for Bada 2.0 since soo damn long now. I bought my Wave 1.5 years back at its launch but now I am sick n tired of waiting for an OS upgrade. Samsung have given me no reason to buy a Bada fone again. No skyping..No fancy live wallpapers. huh!
