BADA OS 2.0
Comes from: Samsung
What’s new: The ever evolving mobile operating system market pushed Samsung to come
up with its own operating system. And the Asian giant did it with the Bada, which means ‘ocean’
or ‘seashore’ in Korean. Samsung had hoped to use this platform to offer a ‘smartphone for every-
one’. However, the effort failed to create enthusiasm. Some phones have now been put on the up-
graded Bada 2.0. The new OS features an improved user interface with multiple windows and the
ability to add shortcuts by holding the icons in the main menu. Other new capabilities include multi-
tasking. (The task manager shows you all the apps running and you can then choose to either close
them individually or all at one go). There is voice recognition too, which can be employed while typ-
ing messages. Wi-fi Direct, NFC, HTML5 and improved Flash functions in the web browser are a
few other highlights of Samsung’s Bada 2.0.
Handsets: Samsung has announced three devices on Bada 2.0.
These are the Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y.
