Samsung to move most smartphones to Bada or Android Samsung has announced the breakdown of which operating systems will be used on their upcoming smartphones, with Android being the clear winner.
The company said 50 percent of all new smartphones will come with the open source Android, the operating system that has been quickly growing in popularity since Google released it in late 2008.

Of the remaining share, 33 percent will use the Bada OS, Samsung's own new operating system, which had its first SDK released in December.

"Customer response for bada-based smartphones is very strong," adds Samsung.

It is unclear what operating system or systems will use up the last 17 percent, but the educated guess is Windows Phone 7.

It makes sense for Samsung to use mostly Android, as this is where the money is.

That last 17% of undefined handsets is interesting. Samsung would be better off using Symbian^3 or MeeGo. Windows Phone 7 is going to be released unfinished, in an incomplete state, so it will get crushed by Android and iPhone which are both mature.

Good to know we have a Microsoft Employee here who can confirm such things.
