The Samsung Wave is no Galaxy S. It’s more like a sheep in wolf’s clothing. A smartphone that isn’t so smart. At least as not as smart as it could be with Android. We take it that is exactly why some industrious developers have been busy trying to get an Android port onto the device, and indeed progress has been made.

Exploting some security holes present in the Bada OS, a Galaxy S build of Android 2.2.1 has been loaded onto the wave, though much development is still needed. RAM access and CPU drivers are the main points of concern. If it ever becomes fully functional we may have yet another quality Android smartphone on our hands, though the engineers behind it never intended that much.
