Samsung to sell 5 million Bada smartphones before the end of 2010, 330 million handsets (in total) in 2011
While announcing the winners of the Bada Developers Challenge, Samsung has also unveiled that it expects to sell 5 million Bada smartphones before the end of the year.
And while this is by no means comparable with Symbian, Android, iOS and BlackBerry OS sales, it’s still a pretty good number for a platform supported only by Samsung and launched this year.
An important part of the estimated 5 million units is taken by the first Samsung Wave (S8500). Samsung currently has five other Bada smartphones: Wave 525, Wave 533, Wave 575, Wave 723, and the Wave II S8530 (pictured below).
Samsung hopes to sell a total of 280 million handsets (smartphones and non-smartpohnes) before the end of 2010. As for next year, the South Korean company plans to ship more than 330 million handsets. Of course, Nokia will still sell more – possibly almost 500 million devices – so Samsung will have to be happy with the second place for yet another year.
