bada 2.0 apps become available for the Wave I and II

Your Samsung Wave just got more AWESOME! bada 2.0 apps are beginning to arrive in the Samsung Apps store for older devices.

Until now, people using bada 2.0 on the Wave I and II have had to find alternate means to download and install new bada 2.0 apps on their devices. However, last week, Samsung Mobile started to officially roll out bada 2.0 across Europe, which meant that they would have to officially introduce bada 2.0 apps to the Wave I and II as well.

Some of the really great apps available for bada 2.0:

  • Asphalt 6 HD
  • Angry Birds
  • Taptu
  • Foursquare (coming really soon)
  • Voice alert languages
  • bada 2.0 flash themes
  • and many more…

Some countries are still waiting to receive the update, but that hasn’t stopped the introduction of bada 2.0 apps to the local Samsung Apps stores.

UPDATE FOR SOUTH AFRICAN bada USERS: In this week, Samsung Mobile South Africa announced in a Facebook comment that bada 2.0 “is currently in testing with the network operators here in South Africa and will be released soon thereafter”.

The SDK for bada 2.0 was released last year and ever since, the development of bada 2.0 apps has risen steadily. With bada 2.0 apps making their way to the store, we’ll see a significant growth in the number of apps available in the Samsung Apps store for bada. Big-name apps are also making their way to the platform. We’ve seen Angry Birds, ChatOn, Taptu and others and we’ve heard about official Foursquare, TomTom and others. This growth will surely invite more bada users and consequently more developers to the platform.

Have you updated your device to bada 2.0 via Kies recently? Tell us about the experience and what you think of the updated platform.
