    let me know exact releasing date Bada 2.0 in India . . thanks

    • BADA 2.0 is launching in July 2011. According to some discussion, India will get BADA 2.0 at the end of Q4. I am hoping it to be release by August. India anyways got 1.2 late from rest of the world.

      Samsung says, the total number of BADA devices sold in india is almost equal to the Android phones. So expecting it a little earlier this time.

      Lets hope for the best, what else you can do!!!

    can you please tell me when they are going to release bada 2.0 in India . . . . we gettin irritate from this 1.2 software . .

    • Bad news but not confirmed. Many Bada forums after consulting, “BADA 2.0 is still in alpha stage”!! Expect it by End of 2011!!

      Dnt wait too much!! Its better downgrade to 1.0.

    wrong answer . . . it will come July Bada 2.0 will be there for us Indians . . go n check it internet . .

    • What samsung ensures cannot be believed…atleast I have stopped believing them. And also as i mentioned that no body is sure about the BADA 2.0 release. If they release 2.0 by July 2011 then that is something appreciating. I still doubt and finger crossed!!

    Hi, I’m using bada 1.0 Indian version. Can I update my Bada 1.0 to Bada 2.0. Is this BADA 2.0 is compatible for Indian phones?

    • Yes BADA 2.0 would be compatible with all S8500 Wave models (inc. Indian Firmware). As per various discussions in the samsung wave forums, bada 2.0 release may come first to india due to the increased selling of bada phones. Samsung had planned to release the 2.0 update in July (for wave and wave II )and as usual it is delaying the release. Though Bada 2.0 have been released for other 3 bada phones. Just wait for some more time. I am expecting it to come before october 2011 and not too sooner.

    its too late as Indians are the max users of Wave S8500 in the Market . this is seriously a long wait … and it makes us feel bored with the current version !!

    is bada 2.0 now available for s8500 in india
    if yes
    will service centers be updating it

    • Tarun,

      Its true that Bada 2.0 will support s8500, but Samsung has not confirmed the release yet after a statement for July’11.
      Its been quite a long time since the Bada wave users are waiting for this release. You may have to wait for the update may be a little more long. I am expecting it in the Q4.

    now date is 22-11-2011 and i am from india hyderabad.till now bada 2.0 is not launched for my wave many days we want to wait.

    • Hi,

      This has now gone over the head. I guess S8500 users should stop thinking for this upgrade. Samsung have made lots of promises that may not be coming into action, all they care about is there current user database.
      Bada 2.0 is no matter is a good firmware, but has not hit the market that much like android and iOS. Question is, even if you upgrade to 2.0, where will it take you in near future? Forget about long term commitments.
      Till the time this update will be available, this model would have reached its retirement. Don’t worry more about this upgrade and if possible preserve this phone somewhere in your antique collection and then move-on to something new and future proof like Android and even windows 7.5 mango.

      Have a good day and Best Luck!
