PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Samsung has finally lifted the veil a bit on its new mobile platform, Bada. While some of us were expecting a whole new mobile operating system (perhaps built on Linux), reality is a little different: Bada is actually a platform (APIs, programming tools, etc.) which can run on top of different mobile operating systems.

Well why waste time on Iphone and Android, when Symbian is much larger market.


Mostly because the iPhone is the one platform where developers, if they charge for their app, are almost guaranteed to get a sale rather than having someone pirate it. Plus, you'd be surprised how many people at least in the US don't realize they can install 3rd party software on their Symbian-based smartphones. It's sad, but there it is.
