Samsung announces version 2.0 of its bada smartphone platform

Samsung Electronics has announced the bada 2.0 smartphone platform, which includes support for Near Field Communication, web applications (including HTML 5 and WAC), multitasking and voice recognition. There’s also an improved Software Development Kit for developers.

The news comes a year after bada was launched at Mobile World Congress 2010.

JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business, said “We are delighted with the success of the original bada platform, which was launched at MWC last year. We have looked to build on this with bada 2.0 by creating a versatile and robust platform capable of continuing the success of its predecessor. We have also created and strengthened an eco-system around bada, ensuring developers are able to create the apps our customers need and want”

Worldwide downloads from Samsung Apps, the company’s mobile application store, are shortly expected to exceed 80 million.
