Dunnersfella: I can't wait until Samsung innovates and designs their own operating software... just quietly.

What are the odds of that, given the problems MS are having getting market-share for their OS, and that RIM are having maintaining their share. Not to mention Symbian and the odd non-android linuxy flavours that no-one bought.

A bit out of touch, are you? Samsung Bada was unveiled January 2010. And I don't think it's the success you'd have expected.

They did actually with BADA.. but it didnt take off very well, but they are still going strong on Windows Phone & Android..  They worry less about the OS, just their own addons and the hardware thats why they come up with much better products..

A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all

Listed on HN Oz site for $799AUD, available Dec 1st.

Makes Warehouse Stationery's price all the more interesting...
