Dr Hosoo Lee, the company's executive vice president and head of the Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics, remarked that the OS could help it to become "a true leader in the mobile industry".
He added: "Samsung bada presents a powerful opportunity for developers to get their applications onto an unprecedented number of Samsung devices across the world."
