Samsung Hosts Press Event to Pump Bada Platform

Samsung Hosts Press Event to Pump Bada Platform
We already have BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, Symbian, and Windows Mobile, but Samsung wants to add Bada to the smartphone open platform mix too. We got a sneak peek at the phone last month, but Samsung hosted a special press event today to tell everyone a little more about Bada.

The trouble is that they really did only tell everyone a little more. In my brief discussion with Chris Davies on Twitter, he said that they had a brief demo, “but only conceptual stuff, nothing solid.”

At the event, Samsung said that Bada will feature a full touchscreen UI with multi-touch support. Other highlights include 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, and support for WVGA displays. They also make mention of Flash support, web control, and face detection. All this without showing a real handset.

The expectation is that the first Samsung Bada smartphone will launch in the first half of 2010. A Bada-centric application store will be launching around the same time.
