Images reveal parts of the interface of the Samsung bada
It was just a week ago when Samsung disclosed more details about its operating system called bada. What people were able to see at the presentation was just tiny fragments of the interface, but images revealing more of it have surfaced on the Internet. The materials are actually excerpts of the official OS manual (PDF) and show us what the audio player, threaded style messaging, home screen and integrated social networking functions look like. The pictures show us the home screen consists of 7 pages, similarly to the Android-based handsets of HTC utilizing the manufacturer´s proprietary Sense interface. Moreover, the band typical of TouchWiz that allows for widgets is nowhere to be seen, but the clock itself does look like a widget.

The official website of bada reveals the first cell phone equipped with the operating system is to roll out in the first half of 2010 and the number of bada-based handsets should increase to several in the second half of the year. We do hope we get to see the first bada device soon, perhaps at MWC 2010 or why not even earlier?

The credit loans suppose to be useful for guys, which would like to start their company. As a fact, that's easy to receive a term loan.

There'll be a lot of colour so that Samsung can really show off their AMOLED displays. Although they'll always show them off indoors in the dark, because AMOLED is useless in sunlight

Color is good, but I do think it can be distracting. I do like some of the elements of the OS, but there are key features that I need to know to make a full opinion. I like WinMo only because of the work/life balance in apps and functionality. Will Bada be pure entertainment, or will there be a professional side?

That home sceen(?) looks like android's. I kind of think that the whole OS is too colorful.

"the band typical of TouchWiz that allows for widgets is nowhere to be seen" But there seems to be a settings icon right beside the tab location indicator...
