bada 2.0 Intro

The new and improved version of the bada 2.0 includes support for Near Field Communication (NFC), Web applications including HTML 5 and WAC, voice recognition, scalable UI – as well as multitasking. With the addition of multitasking, bada 2.0 adds flexibility for users and developers to run multiple applications while preserving battery life and optimizing device responsiveness.
