Bada 2.0 Unveiled
Today at MWC, Samsung unveiled the newest version of the bada OS – bada 2.0. With it comes some impressive features like multitasking, NFC (near-field communication), voice recognition, all new Flash-based lock screen, Flash support along with HTML 5, and so much more! Behind the scenes, there is an all new application framework, new SDK, new emulators, and more tools for developers to develop bada apps. Aside from that, we could see abut 5 new bada devices this year if the presentation slides are any indicator. Samsung continues to focus its attention on ways to make bada more competitive and I think all these new features will push bada into competitive field.
Samsung will release bada 2.0 for the Wave S8500 and the S8530 around June 2011. Samsung also plans to sell about 10 million bada phones in the first half of 2011.
