Samsung introduces new version of bada: Multitasking, Voice-recognition, HTML5 support

Samsung just unveiled the latest version of its bada mobile platform generally used on more affordable handsets. The new version of bada adds some significant features like multitasking, voice-recognition and HTML5 support. Such a big update brings plenty of possibilities for Samsung to release more affordable handsets, which mimic most of the functionalities of operating systems like Android. Handsets running Sammy's OS will be able to support NFC chips for near-field payments as well.

In addition, the company has updated the familiar bada interface by improving home screen personalisation options. The update brings more flexibility for the arrangement of items on the home screen. The latest bada has support for 3D sound as well.

Sammy released the Samsung Wave, its first bada handset, last year with what was seen as a revolutionary Super AMOLED screen.
