A Wall Street Journal source claims Samsung is planning to make its homegrown Bada OS open source next year in order to encourage adoption and reduce reliance on Android — possibly hinting that Samsung isn't quite as comfortable with Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility as it said in August. The move may also be designed to enable Bada to become a widely used platform for smart TVs — LG, Philips, and Sharp have already announced a common smart TV SDK, and Samsung could be trying to attract other vendors to Bada for competitive reasons.
