By now you're undoubtedly aware than Samsung has a new smartphone OS (Bada
) and touchscreen technology (Super AMOLED
) in the works. In this case, putting 2 and 2 together yields 14, a number that matches Samsung's February 14th press event at Mobile World Congress. How so? Well, first of all, Sammy is promoting the Samsung Unpacked teaser page from its Bada site. The ocean-themed teaser ("bada" means "ocean" in Korean) says, "on 2.14 a new mobile from Samsung is born. See it first in Barcelona." A quick look at the teaser site's source reveals the keywords "Bada," "smartphone," and "AMOLED." In other words, you can bet that Samsung will be unveiling a 3.3-inch, 800 x 480 pixel Super AMOLED (already rumored
for a next week reveal) touchscreen Bada phone on February 14th.
P.S. The image above comes courtesy of GSM Arena
. While the site won't say what the device is on the left it's clearly running Samsung's Bada UI
and is likely AMOLED judging by those deep blacks. The display is also slightly smaller than the iPhone 3G's 3.5-inch display. Gee... what could it be?
