Get ur facts right.bada doesnt look like android,its the touchwiz luancher samsung places on it that makes it look like that. If another company chooses to use it the ui on that company's handset will look dfrnt.

Peter left us a long time ago. He apparently felt PA was slanted against Bada.

I guess this is good news. We all knew that Intel and Samsung were working on a follow up on Meego, and I was really curious how that would work with Sammy without spreading itself too thin. Now I know. I do wonder how many open sources can be supported, but this will have a nice base to start from as Bada has a strong following.

Bada means ocean. Merging it with tizen, maybe it should be called TIDAL. OR BASIN for better recall :-)
