    Not another one?

    How many platforms are there now for mobile phone applications? On recent phones we have, Windows 6.5, and soon 7, Android 1.5, 1.6, and 2.0, iPhone, Symbian (in various flavours), Maemo, Bada, WebOS, Blackberry, various proprietary widget systems (for SE, Samsung, etc), and good old-fashioned Java. This is insane.

    I've been beaten

    To the obvious Bada Bing joke so I guess I'll have to say something intelligent.

    SE does have the right idea in just developing the phone OS around its core function of being a err, phone

    Will they support it?

    Having bought the Samsung Galaxy and experiencing Samsungs lack of continued support ("we cannot confirm weather there will be an update for this model") I'll never buy another Samsung, as this seems to be the norm for their products.

    Coat - I'm off to get a HTC Bravo when released.

    A modest request

    Could we have bootnote on all further articles about Bada that the Bada Bing joke is officially old and anyone caught making it will be hunted done and executed in an appropriate Sopranos manner.

    Too many mobile OS's

    Seems to me this is exactly parallel to the situation with home PC's in the 1980's - I won't give in to nostalgia and list them, but suffice it to say I was one of the pimply kids who made the Dixons store staff's lives difficult every Saturday morning by going in there and entering random CP/M commands on their display models.

    Eventually one or two platforms will emerge as the winners, just like Microsoft and Apple did from the PC wars - oh, what am I saying, Microsoft and Apple already did, it's just that the others haven't realised yet. Dead phone OS walking...
