Bada (stylized as bada; Korean: 바다) is a discontinued operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It was developed by Samsung Electronics. Its name is derived from "바다 (bada)", meaning "ocean" or "sea" in Korean. It ranges from mid- to high-end smartphones. To foster adoption of Bada OS, since 2011 Samsung reportedly had considered releasing the source code under an open-source license, and expanding device support to include Smart TVs. Samsung announced in June 2012 intentions to merge Bada into the Tizen project, but would meanwhile use its own Bada operating system, in parallel with Google Android OS and Microsoft Windows Phone, for its smartphones. All devices running Bada were branded under the Wave name, unlike Samsung's devices that are branded under the name Galaxy, which do not encompass the whole range of Samsung devices running Android. On 25 February 2013, Samsung announced that it would stop developing Bada, moving development to Tizen instead. Bug reporting was finally terminated in April 2014.
