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.

HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
