Samsung Bada OS

Bada is a Samsung developed mobile device OS. Bada is the Korean word for ocean and seashore. Samsung recently launched the Bada 2.0 update and a new line of Wave phones running the new version of the OS. Apps developed for this platform are distributed through the Samsung Apps store. Bada can be configured to run on an RTOS or Linux kernel. Many of the current Samsung smartphones run Android and it's left to be seen if Bada will change this. There is also talk that Samsung might consider purchasing webOS. Some of the features of Bada 2.0 include multitasking, NFC support, WiFi direct, push notifications and voice recognition. Developers can make use of the OpenAL api, HTML5, Javascript Framework, Flash and WAC 2.0. Take a look at the following interview done with Justin Hong, VP with Samsung Mobile Communication.



Here are some screenshots I captured from the emulator/IDE.







Do you think Bada will become the dominant mobile OS for Samsung? Would you buy one of the new Wave phones? What are your thoughts? Please share with us.

  1. I find it hard to see an OEM developed OS be widely accepted by other competing manufacturers. Secondly, with iOS and Android already dominating the mobile market, any competitor will have to offer something the others lack, and at the current rate of development by both parties, pretty soon that will be nothing. Let's ref. HP with their failed Pre devices with their OS which reviews marvelled at. It's a very competitive market, with many big player, where even the veterans like RIM and Microsoft are struggling to keep up; but in the world of technology anything can happen.

  3. Samsung CEO has cleared the air at the IFA tradeshow and said that "Samsung Electronics Would ‘Never’ Pursue Purchase of WebOS" via Bloomberg.
