Have a Hundred rupees ? You can now get a Samsung Galaxy S2 for 2 Dollars (Australian) if you are in Sydney. The line apparently stretches beyond the one at the Apple Store, the first 10 people in line at the store get the device at $2.

Unfortunately for Samsung, it doesn’t seem to be working on most, with student Tom Mosca noting:
There’s this guy who has come up to us trying to convince us to buy the Samsung Galaxy S [...]
Its the classic case of “we want you to buy new devices” Wave 2.0 is said to be considerably heavier than the existing version. As in the case of iOS 4 for iPhone 3G , You basically get half the features of higher end phones, a lot of lag and crashing and a chunk load of disappointment all around. Lets hope that this is not the case with BADA 2.0 as SAMSUNGBADA twitter account has updated saying that all existing bada devices get Bada 2.0, but not all get all the features.
Looks like its gonna be one big battle b/w users, Samsung and App devs (most of whom are already dreading different formats from Bada OS)
Ready for battle – round 1 – [...]
