Bada 2.0 comes to Samsung

South Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung has unveiled the bada 2.0 software development kit, which is the new application development tool for Samsung’s own mobile operating system.

Samsung has made public the news of the arrival of the SDK that supports the new bada 2.0 platform, whilst at the same time announcing that three new Wave mobile phones will be launched later this year.

‘Wave’ is the brand name for the Samsung bada run mobile phones, where there have been seven models in total – the Wave 578, Wave II, Wave 723, Wave 575, Wave 533, Wave 525 and the original Wave handset from early 2010.

No real details were forthcoming as to the nature of the trio of upcoming Wave phones, only that they will all be running bada 2.0 and will range from premium models to entry-level devices.

Bada 2.0 is said to include new features surrounding multi-tasking, WIFI Direct, Near Field Communication (NFC) and voice recognition – along with improved support for web applications, such as Flash and HTML5.

Developers will benefit from the introduction of In-app Ads, which will allow them to create new revenue opportunities by inserting advertisements and in the same way that Angry Bird supports adverts on the Android version.
