Samsung bada unveilng, SDK dated

Samsung's bada has received a definitive public debut date through an invitation sent to the press. The phone platform and its development kit should be given their first public airing at an event in London on December 8th. Besides showing the software, the gathering will also have Samsung discuss its future mobile strategy.

A San Francisco event is due next after the British premiere.

The first phone using bada won't ship until the first half of 2010 and may not constitute a full operating system; it's rumored that it will instead be a software layer for development on top of another system, such as Linux, rather than a true foundation. Analysts, however, have claimed to know that bada will sit on the majority of Samsung phones by 2012 alongside another largely open platform, Android. [via GigaOM]
