Samsung wasn’t kidding around when it promised to boost its Android offerings in 2010. Speaking to analysts on Friday, Samsung executives noted that over 50% of the Korean company’s smartphones slated for release in 2010 will run Google’s mobile OS. Taking up much of the remaining slack will be bada, Samsung’s very own OS. As it stands, the Wave is the sole announced bada handset (keep in mind we have seen more), but by the end of 2010 approximately 1/3 of Samsung’s smartphones should run the Linux-based platform. Samsung is the world’s second largest manufacturer of mobile phones having sold 64.3 million devices in Q1.
