Bada 2.0 adds a Wave of excitement for older Samsung phones

Do you now look at your Samsung Wave or Wave II device with contemptuousness hidden beneath your eyes, following the unveiling of the awesome looking, Bada 2.0 packing, Wave 3 over at IFA?

Do you long for some Bada 2.0 action to at least put you on an OS-par with your Wave based contemporaries?

Well look and long no longer (or actually, just for a bit more) as it has been announced that Bada 2.0 will be making its way to the older Wave models later this year.

The news was confirmed in a tweet from Samsung's Bada team, although they did warn that the features could differ slightly when it arrives in Q4, due to "device specification such as CPU, memory size, etc."

Bada may not be on a par with the likes of iOS or Android, but at the last count there were more than 4.5 million users worldwide and in Q2 it proved more popular than Windows Phone 7.
