    No Samsung, it really isn't, and chances are it probably won't ever be. It's a silly attempt at trying to fit in with the big boys.

    Well, enough from me. What do you guys think of Samsung's Bada operating system?

    I think if they market it right they could get some ground. Maybe best if they tried to bridge the gap between dumb phone and smart phone or even just tried to make it a dumbphone OS that allows some wifi access for smartphone like features. I know the smartphone lite idea has been tried before (kin) and failed so it would rely on some Apple like marketing to fill a niche that is not there.

    A demonstrably-better OS let down by lack of software support from third-parties and (ultimately) indecision by its own developers? ;)

    Bada is Samsung's own baby, so they're free to develop it however they want. They're still hedging their bets with Android and Windows Phone, while Bada looks like it borrows UI elements from both. Maybe they're hoping to corner the market in users who don't like/trust either megacorp? :)

    If my post came across incorrectly, apologies.

    I'm not saying Kondik was brought on board solely for Bada, it was more likely Touchwiz as you've pointed out. However, given his talent, I suspect they'd at least look to him for advice/guidance on Bada at some point.

    When Google announced that they would acquire Motorola, Samsung did saber rattling in their market to show that they were independent and not reliant on Android.

    Among the obvious fictions in that statement included speculations that would have Google violating their Open Handset Alliance agreements, something that Google knows they can't do without being sued into phone oblivion, and Samsung knew that.

    Among the other fictions was that Bada mattered to anyone beyond PR value.

    Talking about minority phone platforms, anyone fancy a Brew?
    Brew MP ...which is by Qualcomm

    I actually had a Brew phone once, the Skypephone on 3 in the UK. The 3 Skypephone was made by Amoi from China.

    There are rumors of Bada going Open source and it being merged with project Tizen .

    Samsung may not have a winner but bada is their pet projects and no one usually abandons pet projects :D

    I thought that already happened (the going open sourced part, not the merging with Tizen.
