Samsung Wave booted into Android

The Samsung Wave introduced the bada operating system by Sammy, but could it be that now, nearly a year after its launch, the handset might turn out to be capable of running Android? If you ask Polish/Russian/Belarusian developers from the Androbada project the answer would certainly be yes.

The quest to make the smartphone experience on the Wave even richer with the huge choice of apps that Android offers has not yet come to an end though. The hack uses security holes, which allow porting the operating system without affecting the security of the platform. But Android on Wave is still in its alpha form, which is plagued by performance issues including improper management of the Wave's 512MB of memory and 1GHz CPU.

We're thrilled with the opportunity, though, especially given the Wave's excellent camera and premium build materials, so we'll follow this closely, but in the meantime you're welcome to check out Android running on the Wave yourself in the video below.
