bada 2.0 update for older Samsung Wave smartphones delayed until Q1 2012
Back in September, Samsung promised to bring some form of bada 2.0 to all of its Wave smartphones in existence, and the rollout was supposed to begin before the year's end. Well, that is not going to happen, as it now turns out, or at least not within the given time frame.

Both Samsung of Spain and Samsung of Italy have announced that the bada 2.0 update is being delayed until the first quarter of 2012. The company's Italian branch is being a bit more specific on the matter by stating that the software won't be available prior to March of next year. Which will be the first devices to get it remains unclear.

At this time, out of the 8.1 million smartphones that run bada, version 2.0 is installed only on the Samsung Wave 3, Wave M, and Wave Y. The Samsung Wave 525 and Wave 533 are not getting updated to bada 2.0 due to insufficient hardware requirements.

Let's see who wins the race between Bada and Symbian in this race of latecomers. This is atrocious handling of Bada by Samsung. I am glad to have an iP4 alongside the abandoned S8500.

This approach by Samsung to its own OS will not help them to develop Bada .. Samsung please stop Bada and stop cheating ur customers like me ..

@arcq12, my bad dude. I should have been more precise. I actually meant its a race between bada 2.0 and Symbian belle on who comes later on their earlier respective handsets.
