Samsung had launched its ambitious bada mobile operating system for feature phones and introduced Wave series of smartphones. Polish Forum Bada-world.pl guys have released
a proof video of Samsung Wave S8530 running Android 2.2.1 Froyo instead of bada OS. This was bound to happen. While Samsung was convincing many about the bada OS meant for feature phones with smartphone level hardware, the enthusiasts thought otherwise.
Polish hackers have managed to boot the Samsung Wave S8500 with Android 2.2.1 ROM of Galaxy S - since both have the same hardware. Dubbed as the AndroBada Project, the hackers state that it is in early stages as the phone boots and allows using Wi-Fi as well as GSM network. Since their efforts led to burning two bada phones, the further development would continue only when they buy a new handset.
Hackers say that after this hack, any app works except the widgets and themes. No other features are functional because the stability of the CPU hasn't been achieved. The Wave S8500 carries the same 1GHz Hummingbird CPU found in the Galaxy S. Running Android on other OS running hardware isn't something new. We already know about the Android being ported on iPhone 3G last year and the developments on the same project have been taking place at slow pace. It seems like this AndroBada Project might be just limited to Samsung
