PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Although the phone market is quite healthy at the moment, some parts of it are less healthy than others. In particular, the situation in the mid-end range isn't particularly stellar. The stagnation and scheduled death of Symbian and Blackberry OS, while their successors seem to mostly target the high-end market, only leaves Samsung's bada as a healthy mid-end phone OS at the moment. In this article series, I'm going to have an in-depth look at this OS, and see how well it performs in practice on some mid-end hardware which it has been designed to power, the Wave 533.

"Anyway, back to the topic, I also would really like to get to the software part soon since I have not yet encountered with bada operating system which rasterman of Enlightenment has worked on GUI part.

Second part on overall UI is close to completion, I have left to write a big chunk of text on keyboard input, and also something about battery life. I have some other things to do this WE but it should probably be out somewhere in the beginning of next week ;)

I'm very interested too. I have an Android phone, and even though I'm kinda happy with android as a whole, I was very much tempted by Samsung's Wave (the first) which I found very pretty. I just didn't dare spring so much money for a phone with an unknown OS.

It's a pity you can't compare the two OS's.

What I'd also like to know is, how long the battery lasts for you (average use). Is it easy to get more than two days of use with 3G on all the time (or even only during the day)? I have the feeling that Android drinks a lot of juice just by itself, without any apps running...
