If You Have a Wave And Long For Android, Check This Out…
Porting is the ultimate frontier in the development world. This involves getting device A to run something designed to work on device B and make it work just like in device A. This is not to be confused with emulation, which involves running code designed for some device inside a program that resembles the running environment for said code. Our devs have gotten miracles done when it comes to porting, starting with the initial ports of Windows Mobile 2005 on devices not designed to run it. Later on, Android porting became of interest to many and as a result, you can find Android ports for several devices on XDA. This is happening once again for owners of the infamous Bada-wielding Samsung Wave. For several months, there has been a team of devs tirelessly working to achieve this feat, and today they are happy to announce the release of the first alpha with a guide on how to get this up and running on your Wave. XDA member ShadowAS1 brings us this very thorough guide that will walk you step by step on how to get this up and running. This is not a daily driver yet, but it will be soon. So if you need your device to be fully functional, just hold off on installing this.
If you decide to play with it, please leave feedback for the devs so that they can iron out some of the bugs.

Intel showed its face at MWC 2015 to give the world a yearly update on their upcoming line of chipsets for mobile. While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
