We’ve heard quite a bit about Samsung’s forthcoming bada OS over the past few days, and now an image has been leaked of the supposed first

Now, granted, anyone who is a bit handy with Photoshop could whip this up without much of a problem, but it’s interesting all the same.

We know that the first bada handset is set to hit stores in the first half of 2010, and will pack a touchscreen-based UI to bring the “smartphone experience” to a wider experience.

They said: “Samsung is an initial member of Symbian Foundation and continues to cooperate with Symbian Foundation.

“At the same time, Samsung supports various existing open operating systems including Symbian, Linux, Android, and Windows Mobile.”

They added: “To provide more choices to meet consumers' many different taste and preference, we will continue our 'multi-OS' strategy.”

Perhaps they should tell Samsung’s senior vice president Don Joo Lee that…
