Posted by techhackz-admin Wednesday, August 10, 2011


Bada is an Operating System created by Samsung and first available with the Samsung Wave devices, critics have been quite happy with Bada and Bada 2.0 but there are not as many apps available for this platform than iOS or Android. That’s why you might be interested in installing Android 2.2 (Froyo) on your Samsung phones running Bada like the Samsung Wave S8500. Let’s see how after the break.
