My apologies if there is a topic about this already, but it seems as if there is none(I used the search button)

My question is, will there be a CR application for the new Bada OS? I myself, along with many people looking to buy a smartphone without a data plan, will be getting a Samsung Wave (excellent phone), however it runs on the Bada OS and I was wondering if the CR app will be developed for it anytime soon.

Thanks in advance

I hadn't heard of Bada OS before seeing this topic but it seems that Bada OS has a very small market share at this point in time, when you compare it to iOS and Android OS, which makes it an unattractive prospect to pursue right now. We have limited time and resources (developers) so we're just focusing on platforms that have a big market share, are easy to develop on or have a promising future in order to maximize our reach. Though, if Bada OS gains a larger market share and/or we have the time to support it, we will; since we want to support as many platforms as possible.

Yeah Bada is a new platform at the moment it only has 1 phone, But It will become popular android started with one phone now it has almost 100 phones. Also Bada doesn't have 3G so you would have to use Wifi that would make no since why not just use a Laptop or computer at that point

Edit: The Bada App Store isn't available in the US yet.

Actually, my Samsung Wave running on the BADA OS supports 3G. It's pretty much a full smartphone with a rather small application store.

Regarding sales, the samsung wave has reached 1million in sales in under a month. The first iphone took 74 days to reach the 1 million milestone. I'm expecting the samsung wave to become popular quickly.
