Samsung, which is now more concentrating on its tablets and smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S. At the time of announcement of Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung had also announced launch of a smartphone which was running on their Bada OS.
Samsung is in run of discontinuing its Bada platform by mid of 2013.
The first handset which had this OS was the Samsung Wave. However, these handsets did not attracted the customers and hence, there were lower sales of these handsets. As per report by Eldar Murtazin of Mobile Review, the author is sure that Samsung will discontinue this operating system by mid-2013.
The author states that it is hardly possible that Samsung will launch iany of its smartphones based on the Bada OS, as there would be none. He goes on to state, “Such statements will never be simply due to the nature of the company and that it, unlike Nokia, does not seek to destroy their sales.The number of Bada phones in the market, will begin to decline and they will simply disappear from the by next year , and new models will not be launched. Support for developers already included in the budgets of 2012, will be carried out until the last moment, as well as support for the products themselves. But to say that the cardinal will jump in that direction, it is impossible. Samsung will not now think about this Bada OS as it is aready now working on Android platform.
As per report given by Unwired View, commenting on the interview given by Murtazin, the author states, “The success of the first Galaxy S, even bigger Galaxy S2 and the l performance of the Wave phones, has failed the Bada already in 2011. Samsung was always very good at throwing things at the wall, seeing what sticks and running away with it. And doing it in very pragmatic way. If the sales/traction isn’t there – the stuff gets left behind. The things that do work get all the resources, attention and investment. As per them,what matters is sales and customer satisfaction and nothing else.

Samsung OS bada which came in the market in 2010 specially for the touch features phone now Samsung is planning to assimilate with Tizen. Now Samsung with new Tizen phone will be released in this year.
Samsung’s Bada OS was launched back in 2010 and was specifically designed for touch based feature phones. Samsung’s Wave was an early adopter and was praised for its spiffy and versatile operating system. It benefited from third party applications which were cultivated through Samsung’s own application store .
Unfortunately, the OS featured on just a few phones as Samsung invested much of its efforts in Google’s Android. However, following Google’s acquisition of Samsung’s direct rival, Motorola Mobility, the Korean company decided to shop for a more competent secondary OS to hedge risks.
Tizen is based on MeeGo (the OS used on Nokia’s N9) and LiMo (Linux Mobile), and was created in collaboration with Intel. Samsung’s gravitating towards the OS is owed to its existing loyal support and its open source versatility.
The company will begin merging existing Bada sensibilities into Tizen early this year according to a GSMArena report. The merger will no longer see Bada operate independently on mobile devices, other than the older model phones in which it is currently installed.
Samsung has confirmed its current SDK and applications will be compatible with Tizen, but failed to clarify if Bada handsets can be upgraded to Tizen: a move considered unlikely.
Up to two Samsung phones running the new Tizen OS will be released this year. The phones are expected to be low range, filling the slot formerly accounted for by Bada.
