Samsung Wave Running Google Android 2.2 Froyo

Advertisement

Remember the Samsung Wave, aka GT-S8500 we reviewed last year? It was the first device to use a Super AMOLED screen, and also the first device to ru Samsung’s own Bada platform.

Poland is the place where the operating system powering the Samsung Galaxy S, Android 2.2 Froyo, was hacked to boot and run on the Samsung Wave. It’s running a bit sluggish as you can see in the video below but it’s definitely not due to hardware limitations on the Wave. The S8500 sports a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, PowerVR SGX540 GPU, Hummingbird chipset as well as 512MB RAM — really, the specs of the Galaxy S — which is more than enough for Android to run smoothly. With a little driver tweaking for fluid performance this could be a great Froyo WVGA 3.3-incher.
