I just went to the Samsung Bada Developer day in London on June 18th, 2010 (I'm currently on vacation over there). They gave us a nice little free Samsung Wave phone. If you don't know yet, Bada is yet another new C++ mobile platform environment, all complete with its own app store, that's currently being pitched to the worldwide developer community.
[Since a few of you have asked that I publish this email message on a blog, so you could link to it, and have asked some follow-up questions, I'm posting this message on here, plus I'll add some context and I'll be sure to answer all your questions before the same event happens in San Francisco on June 22nd, 2010.]
Bada is still at a very early phase, but the Samsung Wave is a nice phone, and the two games I've played on it so far are some of the slickest games I've ever played on ***any*** mobile phone. The speakers hinted at the possibilities of combining their Samsung TVs and other Samsung electronics with their Bada platform, but they didn't want to elaborate (they didn't seem to have much of a plan on that front yet).
The free developer phone is definitely worth having, super fast and super-crisp touch-screen display (gsm, at least the one I got in the UK). Its handy camera does on-the-fly panorama stitching, plus has a rapid-fire mode, and can do a host of other things. And the Bada/C++ platform is promising as well, but I think they said it's nine months old. And it shows. Samsung put a lot of effort into producing high quality games with very good partners, but some of its other areas are still very alpha.
