Hands on with Samsung’s Bada Smartphone operating system

May 10th, 2010

Here’s Samsung’s Bada smartphone operating system. You’re probably asking yourself what the point of another smartphone operating system is. The way I see it it’s basically Samsung’s way of paying less royalties so that they can sell Bada phones cheaper than Windows Phone 7, Android, etc phones. It’s also a necessary as Samsung adds  features to their feature phones (dumb phones). Basically the dumb phone is getting smarter.

The Wave is actually a midrange phone, check out it’s nice OLED display. It also has a 1Ghz processor and a 5 megapixel camera.

Here are some of my Bada impressions: The Wave is fast! I’m not sure how Bada will run on slower processors but on the Wave it’s really really responsive. I was impressed with the social networking integration; instead of just having a separate program handling it social networking Bada can sync your phonebook and calendar with Facebook for example. The browser supports multiple windows and renders pages quickly. It also has multitouch support.

Anyways it looks like Samsung will helping lower the price point for those who want a smartphone in the future but can’t afford one.
