In one of its slides, there was a brief mention of four new, cheaper Bada phones to be unveiled in the future.

There is no detailed information on these new smartphones, besides them being cheaper, and two of them having a hardware slide-out QWERTY keyboard. These should be regular variants of the Wave - some thinner, some with less features, and others with keyboards.

Besides explaining the internal workings of the Bada system, the presenters at the event also went over Samsung Mobile's latest user interface, TouchWIZ 3.0, and its integrated Social Hub.

In the near future, Samsung plans to expand its Bada smartphone to 75 countries, 156 operators, and offer more than 6 500 apps to go with it. The manufacturer actually expects to soon overtake Nokia's marketshare, according to the slide below.

    Why should Samsung create another OS? Symbian and Android is free and they should use it. I doubt other manufacturer will use this OS.
