Bada is a mobile operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It is developed by Samsung Electronics. Its name is derived from "바다 (bada)", meaning "ocean" or "sea" in Korean. It ranges from mid-range to high-end smartphones.
To foster adoption of Bada OS, Samsung is reportedly considering releasing the source code under an open-source license, and expanding device support to include Smart TVs. Samsung has announced it will merge Bada into the Tizen project, but it is not confirmed.
