According to a revelation of the Wall Street Journal, Samsung is planning to transform Bada smartphone into a platform for open source, all within the next have. The companies that generally have their own platforms, with some success, then, are not very inclined to open them all and to offer developers the opportunity to improve. If, however, these platforms seem to have some problem or not take off as expected, groped the way the Open Source community can help a lot.
Sometimes their efforts are rewarded with success, as in the case of Firefox, in other less as the experiment of Nokia Symbian. Groped, however, is not harmful. For some, the possibility that Samsung Bada transformed into an open system is a sign of weakness, almost a sign that the OS has not been as successful as hoped in the market. The positive opinions of the users, however, there have always been, but maybe Samsung has thought of wanting to get even further: I do not see anything wrong.
Mind is not a real operating system, middleware, but: a framework for applications and user interface layers of the kernel running on Nucleus. The kernel can not be opened, because it belongs to others and not Samsung, but was still Bada thought to be independent. It is possible that the current RTOS kernel is replaced with a Linux-based OS, and wore just a rumor Meego. It is possible that Samsung uses kernel Meego in Mind?
Intel does not seem to have canceled or suspended projects regarding Meego, as had been rattled in recent weeks, so something is brewing. If Samsung wants to throw himself headlong into competition with Android, iPhone OS and Windows Phone, the decision to open the Open Source could be the winning move, gaining market share, which also wanted to use Meego before they were abandoned by Nokia. You just have to wait until next year and see what happens.
