Bada (meaning Ocean in Korean) is the new Samsung OS. Samsung Wave (equipped with Bada) will be available in France on May 2010 for around 450€. The Samsung Galaxy i-7500 embedded with Android is not supported with updates, i know some owners who are disappointed
What’s different from Android and iPhone ?
I made this article because during a job interview, the CEO told me he was planning to invest ressources on Bada ( FYI : I wasn’t hired ). The guy wasn’t either impressed by Bada at MWC, but he said ALL Samsung phones will be equipped with Bada representing about 40 % of French market ( French love mid to high-end mobiles, whereas in India Nokia is dominant ).
I’m just impressed by this optimism on Bada. Will it be just another Symbian ? Only the next months will tell.
But iPhone demonstrated to be successful platform, you need :
– volumes ( done )
– distribution channels ( done )
– successful apps store ( Samsung as an electronic company needs to show that)
