New Samsung product names revealed

On September 1, Samsung is planning to hold a big press event in Europe where it is expected to reveal at least one, if not more, new products. But it seems that the company has unknowingly revealed the names of what the new products will be. As revealed on ThisismyNext.com, one of its readers decided to poke inside the Samsung Mobile Unpacked APK app that Samsung has already released on the Android marketplace. The result of that investigation is the reveal of three logos with product names.

One of them is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, which if the company keeps its numbering scheme for its tablet line, means that it will soon be offering a 7.7 inch version of the Galaxy Tab product to join the 8.9 inch and the more recent 10.1 inch tablet. Also revealed is the Samsung Wave 3, which the article states could be running Samsung's own smartphone operating system Bada 2.0. Finally, the third product name revealed is the Samsung Galaxy Note, which seems to be a total mystery at least for now. No tech specs for any of these new devices have been revealed.

Samsung is still planning to hold yet another press event, this time in New York City, on Monday. It is expected that Samsung will announced the availability of its popular Galaxy S II smartphone here in the US. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are all expected to sell a version of the smartphone but as we reported earlier this week Verizon has decided to not offer the Galaxy S II on its network.

they should stick to android.

Samsung will keep releasing Android based phones, but they'll also release Bada based phones. The first Bada phone was the Wave S8500, released in June 2010. Wave was a slim touchscreen phone powered by Samsung's "Hummingbird" CPU (S5PC110), which includes a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU and a built-in PowerVR SGX 3D graphics engine, "Super AMOLED" screen and 720p high-def video capabilities.
Samsung it's probably the only company that can produce all the things needed for a phone, hardware and software. Maybe in the future we'll see Samsung releasing Windows phones. They will be the biggest name in the market in less than 5 years.

Samsung already sells Windows phones: the Focus and the Omnia (EU only).

Yeah, it is pretty bad a! It's for dumb phones.

Dumb comment, actually Bada it's for smartphones. It's pretty good and fast. The biggest problem it's the small user base and apps.

Perhaps if you don't have a clue about something the best thing to do is not say anything but I understand, the way you said your comment clearly indicates your personal opinion "to me".

Now let me say something else.

1. I don't have a Bada phone but I have seen 2.0 videos and I can't tell the difference between Bada and Android and by default, the default controls in Bada look a better compared to Android.

2. I have downloaded both the Android SDK and Bada 2.0's SDK and to me, the Android SDK is light years behind Bada's SDK - when it comes to ease of development. Bada applications are developed using the C++ language/syntax where Android are developed using the Java syntax. That is beside the point, the Bada SDK is a lot more user friendly than Android's SDK and in programming things are actually making sense. For instance: "Object/Control" vs "View" or when one tries to design a GUI via design time and run time and according to Softpedia, "The storefront, which includes a number of more than 40,000 applications, is available for users in 121 countries, and already enjoys increased downloads." http://news.softpedia.com/news...-2-0-Available-218690.shtml
