Those are just emulations. It isn't really Android running on the device.

Bada can do themes! I think the platform is good enough to code some cool theme for it. Anyways, i have a wave now and i didn't pay a single cent for it. Samsung just gave it to meee

Just get a Galaxy S or something, instead of wasting your time trying to port an OS.

Dude not everyone likes the Galaxy S and the Wave has a one of a kind look. Its just posting to a forum, so I don't see much time being wasted. Samsung or HTC or whoever will come out with something new in a few months anyways so we don't have to settle for the Galaxy S, but in the meantime it doesn't hurt to ask for possible options for the only IMHO non-ugly smartphone.

Well looks like this aint gonna happen, which sucks. Anyone want to buy a cheap Samsung Wave? I'm going to go get a HTC Evo!

Hello Guys...

Just got the Samsung Wave - and I must say what a great little phone it is - shame about some of the software (like the customisation that local phone providers have done - really slows the phone down - even to the pointof crashing it because their applications are not stable - Take note T-mobile in the UK).

The Bada system is not that bad - still in its beginings - but it is an Open system running on a Linux kernal - and its on par with Android (ok not as popular), but still good.

Since both the Galaxy S and Wave are running the same hardware- it should be possible to flash the Wave with the Android firmware designed for the Galaxy. I have not delved inot this much -so any comments from experienced developers would be welcomed - but to be honest I don;t see a problem with loading the Galaxy S firmware onto the Wave.

~LK~
