I agree with the author. Samsung has every reason to push Bada since it's their own software platform and adaptable to the different market segments. They will likely concentrate on Android for the mid-range to high-end markets, probably dropping the Symbian platform along the way. If they intend to market Windows Phone 7 handsets, it's probably only at the high-end considering Microsoft's minimum required hardware specs.
