Samsung (SSNLF.PK) plans to make its Bada mobile OS, which has seen moderate success in the mid-range phone market, an open-source platform. By doing so, Samsung, which appears nervous about GOOG/MMI, hopes Bada will become a viable No. 2 option to Android, though it's possible Windows Phone (MSFT) will beat it to the punch.
