PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For most of you, Samsung's Bada will be a bit of a mystery. As far as I know, it isn't sold in the United States, and Samsung isn't pushing it very hard in Europe either. Still, it has a 2% market share, and since my brother has a Bada phone, I can confirm it is a surprisingly good, fast, and easy to use smartphone operating system. Still, Samsung seems to have greater plans for it than just this 2%, since it has announced it will merge Bada with Tizen, the successor to MeeGo.

In general it's good, because there will be devices out there where normal Linux could be used (not Android), i.e. with X11 and may be Wayland drivers in the future.

That might depend on how central part of the effort Bada will become ...I believe it doesn't rely on X in any way, doubt that will change.

Tizen uses Xorg, that's for sure:

So if Bada is going to merge in, Xorg would stay. I just wonder why it's not Wayland yet.
