Among the first products sporting the bada OS is the amazing Samsung Wave phone, which is based on Samsung’s S5PC110 chip, which of course has our powerful PowerVR SGX 540 embedded.

Samsung’s bada OS enables applications to fully utilize powerful smartphone hardware by providing various APIs for interactivity including UI elements, 3D Graphics, multipoint-touch, sensors and motion support. Applications developed with the PowerVR Insider SDK with Samsung’s bada SDK can be sold through Samsung Apps, Samsung’s application store.
