Samsung to Update Wave Devices with New Bada 2.0 Mobile Operating Platform

Samsung is planning to update its entire range of Wave devices with the new Bada 2.0 mobile operating platform.

The official Twitter account of Samsung Bada revealed that the company plans to introduce a Bada 2.0 update for older Wave devices in the fourth quarter of 2011. The platform will come preloaded with new Wave devices like Galaxy Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y.

“The 2.0 upgrade for Wave devices will be available from 4Q — starting Europe — in different countries gradually,” as reported on Twitter by the company.

The company also said the update will be available for Samsung Wave 723 and Wave 525 but the performance and features will vary from device to device due to hardware variation.

“I meant all Wave devices but 2.0 features could be different depending on device specification such as CPU, memory size, etc,” as reported in a follow-up tweet.

The new Samsung Bada 2.0, which had its SDK launched some time ago, brings new features to smartphones powered by Samsung’s home grown mobile phone operating system like multi-tasking, support for Near Fields Communication technology that can be used for mobile payments and support for Wi-Fi Direct technology.
