Bada’s “honey-do” list

I have always taken pride in the fact that when I write an editorial, I like to make it as honest as I can and over the past few months I have been reading a lot of feedback on articles, tweets, posts in general from bada users. The one thing they all seem to have in common is lack of customer satisfaction. I’m not here to completely bash bada because this is a bada-centric site and there is a ton to like about bada but there comes a time when a little constructive criticism is helpful. In order for bada to remain in the conversation and to improve… there are a few things that need to be done better or taken out when either bada 3.0 is launched or when bada completes its move to Tizen. I think everyone agrees that the OS itself needs some refinement, fresh and more useful apps, and some features that just need to go away in place of others.

Bada beats Windows Phone in worldwide marketshare/sales

The worldwide marketshare numbers just released today put Samsung bada ahead of Windows Phone which is struggling to gain a solid foothold in the market (Shown below). The Lumia 900 is helping ease the pain some but according to the Gartner report below….bada is doing well internationally and in emerging markets.

The report totals the share of smartphones running Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 and the outdated Windows Mobile legacy devices. It shows that it fell from 2.6 percent in the first quarter of 2011 to 1.9 percent in the first quarter of 2012.

That puts Microsoft’s smartphones in sixth place behind market leaders Android with 56.1 percent and Apple’s iOS with 22.9 percent.

What is most surprising to me is that while the mobile industry is booming, worldwide sales of mobile phones to end users declined 2 percent from a year ago to 419.1 million units in the first quarter of 2012. Samsung was the No. 1 mobile handset and smartphone vendor, with 86.6 million units of mobile handsets sold and 38 million smartphones sold.
