Samsung's First Phone With The Bada OS Will Be Released As Early As MarchS

Samsung's barely released details about its new operating system Bada (indeed, for a while there we weren't even sure it was an operating system), but they're already talking tough.

We do know now at least that the first Bada phone will be released in late March/early April, with Samsung's mobile division President, Shin Jong-Kyun boasting "we seek to make a big success with Bada...The portion of Bada devices will rise significantly this year." The jury's still out on whether we actually need another low-end phone OS, with Bada's biggest rival no doubt being Symbian, but the early screengrabs we saw at least looked...colorful.
