Samsung Continuum Video Unboxing

IMG_1201The Samsung Continuum is out and we’ve got one to put through its paces, but before I take the thing through a few days of ticker-filled madness, I thought I’d share with you guys a quick and dirty unboxing of the device. The Samsung Continuum has a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED display, accompanied by a 1.8-inch “ticker” display at the bottom to feed your social networking updates, weather, RSS feeds, and more all without having to actually turn the phone on. It also happens to be a Galaxy S phone, too, and comes preinstalled with an 8GB microSD card, has a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording capabilities, a Samsung Hummingbird processor clocked at 1GHz, and more. PS: I did end up figuring out that “SNS” stood for “social networking services.” So without further ado, the video!

    Nothing spectacular. I’ll keep my Fassy.

    For $199, this is just way too much. It can’t compete with the fascinate.

    It’s a nice idea, but it’s too close to gingerbread.

    Damn, I always though SNS stood for sympathetic nervous system. No wonder I got the question wrong on my exam!

    In other news, Samsung is really milking the Galaxy S, eh?

    This is the best Android phone yet! That event had me pumped! TouchWiz looks so cool too! I am glad it didn’t come with Google, we all know Bing maps is nice.

    Sarcasm doesn’t work too well on the internet, sadly.

    touch wiz is actually awesome :) And this phone is as well. They should have added the display on the back side tho

    It would worry me if a phone were delivered turned on. Is this a pre-release phone? Maybe it got “checked” in Customs, they sometimes want to make sure things actually operate correctly. I’d think it would be too early for it to have been a return. If it had been on from the factory, the battery would have run down long ago. The only other thing I can think of is some guy at FedEx opened your box to check it out.

    SNS = Social Network Status

  • ToastnJam

    It IS services, not status. If you look at you phones “running services” you’ll see SNS is running in the background.

    giant phone with 2 small screens = dumb idea.
