• Samsung Continuum
    Last Updated: Nov 16th,2010

    The Samsung Continuum is an incredibly unique Galaxy S phone, unlike any other smartphone you've seen. The screen is actually split up into 2 sections: a 3.4-inch touchscreen on top a 1.8-inch ticker screen just below it. Samsung has customized the Android Operating System to show interesting and relevant information in this ticker area, giving it a very quirky opportunity for Continuum users.

    The ticker has several benefits, including the ability to show users updates for text messages, calls, Facebook updates and more, without having to power up the entire screen. Not only could this save on battery life, it also gives users a more discreet way of checking in on status notifications.

    In addition to its unique design and functionality, the Continuum comes with a 5MP camera, 2GB of storage and is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

    Froyo Leaks for the Samsung Continuum

    If the Samsung Galaxy S family had a red-headed stepchild, Verizon’s Continuum would win the honors. The phone’s unique secondary ticker display didn’t make as big a splash as Samsung might have hoped, relegating the Continuum to the back of our minds.

    Samsung Continuum Review

    Although this is a Galaxy S phone, there’s a significant difference in hardware between the Samsung Continuum and other Galaxy S phones.
