Samsung and update to Bada 2.0

Samsung and update to Bada 2.0
Lots of people complained about updating their Wave and Wave2 devices to Bada 2.0
In general it just takes too long for the official updates to roll out.
The convenient question arrises immediately : Why ?
For us its relatively simple. Bada 2.0 for Europe has been finished some time ago.
As most of you may know we released updates steadily. Unfortunately still there are no “official” updates.
Samsung now announced to start the roll out of bada 2.0 updates Q1 of 2012 for wave devices and more.
This is almost a year after the announcement of Bada 2.0 !

But what can we actually believe in all this? Is Samsung this slow or are these just good sales tactics?
According to one of our “insiders” the roll out of Bada  2.0 shouldve started Q3/Q4 2011.
Not bad looking at all the leaked ROMs we offer allready.
Unfortunately this also proved to be not reliable information.
When we asked Samsung Benelux for clarification they stated it to be planned for November.
Now that the year has almost passed its more likely to hit Q1 2012…
Samsung will provide Bada 2.0 exclusively 2/3 months for Wave3, WaveM and WaveY.
This will be good for Samsung sales, in a store youll probably decide to buy a bada 2.0 device then one running older software.
Also Samsung will slowly stop producing the older Wave devices.
So the long waiting can be good for commercial reasons but not for the true Bada users.
Something which Apple and Google take on from a whole different approach.
Unfortunately both companies are legends in software bussiness and Samsung is just not there yet.

When will Bada 2.0 arrive in your oppinion?
Looking back at all expectation and info leaks we think its safe to say it will arrive Q1 2012.
And yes thats almost a full year after the announcement.
Samsung states Bada 2.0 will roll out for the following devices:
Wave, Wave II, Wave 723 ,Wave 578 and Wave 575.

I’ve given wave 2 to my friends, I am ashamed to wear wave 2. os is not upgradeable. Now I switched to blackberry where the os its upgradeable and is common to find in the forum.
samsung are terrible and do not pay attention after sales to their customers.

After a long wait I´m out of Samsung. They lost a loyal costumer because they don´t care about you nor the devices they sell, they just want to sell. I´m going for an iPhone 4S tomorrow, so that´s bye bye Samsung… forever.

I’m sorry, but with Xmas 3 of us will have Android and WP phones. Tired of bada updates canceled or delayed. We are now using two Wave525’s and one Wave-1 (S8500).

on May 2011, one of my friend asked me: why not install xxxx’x app?
I answered him: my phone doesn’t have it, i’m happy with bada

On Jul 2011, another 2nd friend asked me the same question, I start thinking why bada does not have it…
On Sep 2011, a 3rd friend asked me the same question, I start changing my mind…
On Dec 2011, the 4th, 5th friend asked me the same question, I am going to take action….

Just because Samsung gave me so much time to re-re-re-re-think about changing phone…

I still like Bada, the beta FW works quiet well, Kies has Backup so i can update via Multiloader, there are quiet a lot good working apps, i have a big penis, and i don’t care if bada is going to be released in the end of 2011 or beginning 2012… btw.: Bada devices can write SMS’ and give some calls and that’s all a phone should do 😉

Good review, unpatient europeans

WAO, WHAT A TOPIC TO BE OFFERED FOR DISCUSSION ON THIS VERY SITE. I guess, the moderators from the forum owe me a big apology for speaking up the true, just about the same as people have said above. They were spitting up all over my comments, closing up topics, deliberating to ban me. I had a feeling they would eat me alive if they could. So, what, actually has happened? Have you guys learned something overnight, or you have been denied leaked firmwares from Samsung and all of a sudden got mad at Samsung yourself. I hope you have… Read more »

They are not able to finish Bada 2 updates in one year and looks like Bada 3 development (which the development is still going on) will be a disaster a never ending story.
It was better to finish Bada 2 first and keep your credibility and trust then begin to Bada 3….
Looks like a childish management….

I am really disappointed, samsung had chose a wrong strategy, and we have to pay for that…no way, I am just waiting the end of my contract, to find me a better ecosystem, because samsung and bada left me a bitter taste.
