In the highly competitive world of mobile operating systems, even Samsung wants to make its presence felt with its own new bada SDK. The company has recently released the new SDK 1.0.0b2 so that any developer can download and start creating apps for bada, the new mobile OS that will run the company’s Wave mobile phones. Of course this is an ambitious move, considering that both Symbian and Android already have massive market share in the mobile OS world. Still, it’s worth a try…after all it is hard to predict ‘technology’.
The SDK is feature packed though. “The SDK includes several components: an integrated development environment (IDE), Simulator, UI builder, sample applications, documentation and tutorials. Samsung bada’s IDE is based on the Eclipse CDT (C/C++ Development Tools), which is a popular development environment used by many mobile developers. The Simulator provides a local test environment without the need for a physical handset.” So if you foresee a future with millions of people using bada-powered devices, now would a good time to brush up your programming skills and start working on your next bada-app.
