PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As Sammobile reports: "Samsung will not bring any kind of new Bada phones in the second half of 2012. Samsung's latest bada phones showed up last year at IFA 2011 in Berlin. Samsung showed the Wave3, Wave M and Wave Y, all those devices run on Bada version 2.0. The focus of Samsung in the second half of 2012 is fully on Windows Phone 8 and Android. Because the Windows Phone market is in the hands of Nokia they will try to get that share back. Samsung will also try to make their Android position better than before. Thanks to some new Galaxy products in the second half of 2012. Another sad thing is Samsung moved their first TIZEN OS devices to 2013. Samsung already gave away some developers devices with TIZEN 1.0. The only problem is the support from TIZEN itself." Tizen was a lost cause to begin with, and Bada, while actually pretty good, can easily be replaced by Android. As much as it sucks to lose two operating systems (don't kid yourselves - these are EOL messages), it makes sense from a business perspective. Next up: the TouchWiz team.

Some random site on the internet makes some claims, ergo it's true? I don't see any links to any credible source on that blog post. None. Nada. For all we know it could be made up.

They will? Says who? Doesn't sound like an entirely sound business decision to go up against Nokia in the Windows Phone market. Wait, Windows Phone market? Is it a separate market from the mobile phone market?
Why would Samsung care about selling Windows phones, specifically?

I guess in this brave new blogging world speculation rules the day and fact checking is for suckers.

Samsung already sell WinP7 devices. Approximately 1 out of every 100 sold Samsung handset is powered by WinP7.

While 8 others are powered by Bada OS...

The official Tizen roadmap proves there's not even a delay:

Tizen 2.0 release in December 2012, devices in 2013.
The Sammobile guys have never seen this roadmap imo
