Title: Bada
Post by: mangoo on 2010-Oct-15
Hi,

what about support for Samsung's new Mobilephone platform "BADA"
Although the platform is very new, SAMSUNG did a great job so far (having a great C++ API)

As its using C++ its maybe not too difficult to support it in glbasic?

I would really appreciate it :-)

Got this link from Kitty some days ago - looks like a possible new platform - but not ssure about emulator. without emulator or device its not possible to test.

The emulator is included in the BADA SDK (using an Eclipse IDE) and i heard that it should also run from Visual Studio.

So what i believe is that its just a command line tool and can be used without a spefic IDE.

I ll have a try on it later on.

sounds like a plan.

OK the plan is download Bada SDK create a simple hello world, strip the toolchain, compile glbasic, try on emulator and device then take a cup of tea.

Got both as a twin pack DVD (we haven't migrated beyond DVD yet and probably wont for some time).  =D  Hot Fuzz is good, but I honestly think that the older Shaun of the Dead is slightly slicker -- even if both are satires of different movie genres and you can't really compare the two.

 :offtopic:

Erm sorry majorly off-topic there.  Just shouldn't have mentioned two of my favourite films (although that's a rather large list).  :S

Ok a little more on-topic, does anyone else think that the mobile OS wars is getting a little out of hand, and maybe a bit ridiculous?  Everyone seems to be releasing their own OS and online store!  ;/

I absolutely love "Shaun Of the Dead". I'm a horror (especially zombie) fan anyway, but it works so well - to this day I can't hear a Queen song and not think of the pub scene with the jukebox.

"Hot Fuzz" was very good too.

Check out Simon Pegg's other movies - "Run Fat Boy, Run" and "How To Lose Friends And Alienate People" - both are ace. Can't wait to see "Burke And Hare"

Spaced. You've got to watch every episode of this too if you want to see Pegg and Frost at their best.

Making an OS for everything is nothing really new. I don't mind. Making an AppStore for anything, however, is something I _do_ like. Especially smaller stores might be of real value for us hobbie programmers. I hope. We'll see.

Hi,

i just want to let you know that i bought the  Wave II with an installed Bada 1.2 OS. 

So if i can test anything or try anything, just let me know.


The market doesnt have many apps so far, (about 500 games) so it would be good for us to get an available bada port fast :-)

Regards
Alex

What's going on with Bada anyway? Samsung sems to compete against themselves, as they have both Android and Windows phones in their catalogue. Bada seems kind of redundant.
