Samsung bada: do we need a new smartphone OS? [Video]

As promised, Samsung have unveiled their new smartphone platform, bada, and SlashGear were at the London event this morning.  It's important to note that bada seems at a relatively early stage; the first handset running the platform won't go on sale until sometime in the first half of 2010, and Samsung didn't have any prototype phones for us to look at.  They did, however, outline some of their thinking behind bada, and show a demo video of the conceptual UI which you can see after the cut.

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

Intel Atom Processor Developer Program kicks off: netbook-centric SDK

Intel have kicked off their latest attempt to get developers coding especially for netbooks, in the shape of the Atom Processor Developer Program.  Aimed at optimizing software to take advantage of the generally smaller screen size of netbooks - and likely their lower-powered hardware, too - Intel are pushing Microsoft's Silverlight as a broadly-deployable underlying platform.

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

TouchWiz wasn't the greatest. TouchWiz 2.0 was a huge leap in the right direction. But there was always going to be something holding back Samsung from taking any steps forward in the mobile marketplace, and it had nothing to do with proprietary software on their phones. They lacked what everyone else and their second-cousin has: a way to get first- and third-party developed applications onto their phones. Well, it looks like that's about to change.
