Samsung's New Open Mobile OS Will Be Called... Bada.

Labels: ,

We already knew that Samsung would be launching their new mobile OS soon and it looks like we now know the name. It'll be called Bada. They have their own website here. It's an awkward name, but I'm sure we'll get the hang of saying it. This new OS from Samsung will be completely open for alterations and will have its own app store, of course. Samsung's first Bada handset is expected to launch in the first half of 2010 - and I'm hoping it'll be an awesome start. I'm curious to know more about, so I'm going to browse the website.


Mystery Tablet Spotted With Tegra, Special Thanks To Nvidia's CEO -- ICD Tablet With Windows CE

Labels: , , , , , ,

Nvidia's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, has just been spotted in Dubai in the above photo. Obviously, the most interesting part about the whole picture is not him, but what the tablet on the desk is. It looks pretty Apple-like, with its clean design and one button - like the iPod Touch and the iPhone. They do mention that this is a "3G capable touchpad" and it could also be sporting Nvidia's own Tegra chip. Could this be our first look of an Apple iTablet prototype?

Update: According to the latest Engadget post, it looks like this isn't the Apple iTablet prototype. Nvidia has just confirmed that "it's a Tegra prototype from an ODM called ICD that's being "actively" shopped to carriers around the world." The rumoured specs are said to be Windows CE pre-installed with a resistive touchscreen. Later models are rumoured to be built with Android and a capacitive touchscreen. This tablet is also rumoured to be launching in March 2010 and the carrier in the US could be T-Mobile. Take it with that teensy grain of salt.
