Live mobile streaming startup Bambuser is releasing its application for the Samsung Bada platform. Like the apps it already does for iPhoneOS, Symbian, Android, Nokia Maemo, Symbian, Windows Mobile platforms, it features easy live streaming, geo-location tagging, and social sharing.
The Bada app is not particularly startegic however. It is simply the result of a competition called the Samsung bada Global Developer Challenge, where Bambuser placed 35th out of 2000 teams from 54 countries. Samsung selected 34 winning applications, of which Bambuser was one, with the winners receiving a share of £1.7 million between them. So in other words they were paid to produce the app and got a bit of marketing out of it. Handy, but Bada remains in the backwater of smartphone platforms.
