Samsung's first Bada smartphone pictured
Early 2010 launch?
Samsung only announced its open mobile platform alternative to Android two days ago, but the first image of what may be the first Bada-based smartphone has already appeared online.
Could this be Samsung's first Bada smartphone?

Nothing has been revealed about the mystery device’s technical specifications and it’s still unknown if the image is authentic - or simply a rendering by a Bada enthusiast.
Based on what you see above, though, the Bada phone surely boasts a touch-sensitive screen.
Bada is expected to become the OS of choice for Samsung’s mid-range phones. While the first Samsung Bada-based device could, according to a report by website GSM Helpdesk, be unveiled during Q1 2010. ®
It's rectangular, touch-screen, shiny, and black?
Stop the presses!
Are you sure it's open source? I don't see any reference to that on the (laughable) website --- did you tyop for 'open platform'? (Open platforms typically mean that anyone can write apps for them, provided you're willing to pay/NDA/sign up for the SDK. Closed platforms mean that the SDK isn't available.)
A deal hooked up with Microsoft search?
Would this produce the Godfather phone?
I'll let the cogs whir on that one for a while...
If that's real...
...that looks fabulous.
