Samsung Releases Bada 2.0 SDK with Support for NFC Wi-Fi Direct and Speech-to-Text / Text-to-Speach
The Bada 2.0 SDK is now available and represents a significant upgrade on the old 1.1 version. Samsung’s Bada platform is maturing nicely and now has support for multi-tasking which was badly needed. Bada 2.0 also comes with a new UI and the applications now use a distinct header, footer and TabBar layout a la iOS. Add to that the three layout resolutions that support WVGA (480×800), HVGA (320×480) and WQVGA (240×400) and a new feature Samsung is calling “the Layout”, which in simplified terms acts like CSS positioning and comes with three different “Layout” styles that developers can use to position various elements and controls. The Layout styles are called Linear, Grid and Relative.

Starbucks for Android mobile payments app
Customers Will Be Able to Experience the Fastest Way to Pay at More Than 9,000 U.S. Starbucks Stores with Their Android Device™ Starbucks for Android mobile payments app available in the app store now.
Starbucks has already been offering its Starbucks for Android mobile payments app in the UK but until recently only offered an IOS app here in the States with similar capabilities. Today, however, Starbucks added an Android app, allowing you to pay for your favorite cup of joe with your Android smartphone. Starting with 6800 stores and 1000 Target locations that are capable of accepting the new payment method, users simply have to add credit to their mobile Starbucks card and then scan the barcode the app displays at the register and Bob’s your Uncle, one Mocha Vente is yours to enjoy. The company plans to bring that number up to 9000 locations that will support the new payments in July.
Starbucks staying ahead of trends with its Starbucks for Android mobile payments app
If Starbucks follows its pattern in the UK, NFC payment apps could be just around the corner and we could be seeing an all new Starbucks for Android mobile payments app that supports NFC-enabled phones.
