The guys at Samsung seem pretty eager to expand their smartphone market share and they clearly intend to do it with bada. The words “smartphone for everyone” should be enough to illustrate the idea.
The new bada platform seems capable enough to compete with the leading operating systems out there. Surely, gamers will be delighted to know that bada will support advanced 3D graphics, which will allow for some nice-looking games.
bada will also have other hot features as multitouch, device sync, content management and location-based services, with the former being said to enhance the social networking capabilities. The list continues with support for Flash, in-app purchasing, etc.
So what about the phones that will be running bada? It seems that only touchscreen handsets will be able to take advantage of the new platform. The first devices should be released sometime in the first half of next year, with Samsung targeting worldwide distribution with massive volumes.
And now we can certainly say smartphone users (and smartphone user wannabes) certainly have what to expect from the new platform.
