Samsung Wave crashes onto European shores
Samsung launched its Bada smartphone OS in 2009 with the Wave

The Samsung Wave, the Korean vendor’s first device to use its homegrown Bada operating system, will be available in Germany, France and the UK from June 1. Over the year, the Wave will become available in Southeast Asia, China, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

After releasing the first SDK – in beta – for Bada earlier this month, Samsung is actively constructing an ecosystem around the platform via app store Samsung Apps. Samsung Apps will be available in 80 countries when the Wave launches, and will increase the premium content and applications pool through collaboration with partner companies and developers.

The complete Bada SDK 1.0.0 will be available for download shortly, Samsung said. With less than a week before the first device launches the company had better get its skates on.

Samsung Apps has already launched in the UK, France, Italy, Singapore, Germany, Brazil and China for Windows Mobile and Symbian-based phones.
