Samsung Wave (Bada) Gets a Taste of Froyo
Thanks to XDA member AndroBada, we see that the BadaOS section was not added in vain. As it turns out, the Android appeal seems to be gaining momentum all across the mobile platforms. This time, we see that a project has been started to port Android to the Samsung Wave, which is a device running strictly Bada. Apparently, there has been quite a bit of progress and there is now a video posted in the OP of the thread, showing the Wave running Froyo. It is slow and laggy, but the fact that it is working more than makes up for the few functionality glitches. It is just like with every port, once the OS boots, it is then time to start focusing on the minor stuff (like functionality of sensors, radio and such)
The project seems to be hosted on a Polish site, but the devs are also members of XDA. So, if you have any experience and think you can help the project move forward, please leave some feedback.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
