Samsung today announced commercial availability of the Samsung Wave, the first phone running Samsung's own Bada smartphone OS. The Wave uses Samsung's TouchWIZ 3.0 interface and can run Samsung Apps, a branded application store also available on Samsung's Windows Phone and Symbian devices. The Wave features some high-end smartphone specs, including a WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen and a 5 megapixel camera that can record video at 720p resolution. The phone can output 5.1 channel surround sound to a home theater, and can play a variety of video codecs, including DivX and H.264. The phone also uses Samsung's Dolfin browser for Web browsing, and supports multi-touch gestures for pinch to zoom capabilities. For networking, the phone can use 3G HSDPA networks or Wi-Fi up to 802.11n speeds. The phone is available today in Germany, France and the UK, and will rollout across the world this year. U.S. availability has not been announced.

Bada and Meego === Failed OS's

The market is already saturated with OSes, the last thing we need is more. We need unifying forces not 15 completely incompatible OSes. But the manufacturers can only learn one way and one way only, when they lost money.

In one year, the OSes will be much fewer and all projects that will have not generated money will be halted immediately. We will then be left with
1) Android
2) Apple iphone OS
3) Blackberry
4) WinMO
5) [symbian] == Even though this OS will be completely irrelevant in north america, it still owns all others overseas. But in 1 year it will get crushed by other OSes and maybe dethroned permanently.
ahm... what qualifications to u have to make those predicitions? Rolling Eyes
and also its their money..let them do what they want with it.. android stands for being open and for development/innovations, if you only have this 5 OSes then there are lesser...

You don't know jack.

First off MeeGo is a cross-development platform leveraging the tools of Moblin (Intel) & Maemo (Nokia) to create MeeGo, a Linux OS.

It's kind like saying "ooh you're running the new .Net OS".

Second, Symbian will b...

Bada is actually a cheaper alternative to full blown Smart OSes.

Samsung's intention is to lower the entry price of a smart phone so that the masses out there can utilize it at a more affordable price and yet still get the benefit of a semi-fully ...

How many freakin platforms does their need to be? God Bless Competition... Where does it end tho?

Talk about market fragmentation....
It does not matter how many OS their will be. Android will be taking over, and will continue to strive to be the best.
...
I think it's smart for phone manufacturers to create their own OS's. It keeps people coming back to that same manufacturer a lot like folks generally always go back to Apple or Blackberry. There can be an Apple App Store and a Samsung, LG, Motorola Ap...

The progression has noticably been proprietory software. Each feature phone runs it's respective companies software and soon smartphones will. There is more money when it's in house. The apeal to use android is to gain market share early. They are all...

...
It may seem like a lot of fragmentation at the moment but within the next 2 years most of these players will drop off and we will be left with 3 primary MOS with maybe a 4th trying to play catch up.

1. Symbian S60/S^3
I'm running a beta S3 at the...
