Samsung Continuum With Verizon Available November 11

Times Square was the venue for the unveiling of Samsung’s Continuum handset, the latest in a string of mobile phones. Samsung’s latest offering has been compared to that of its neighbour, the Galaxy S with similar features, and will be available for pre-order on November 11.

Mashable has reported that the Continuum will commence with carrier Verizon Wireless although it may branch out to others in the near future. The new handset will come with a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, DLNA compatibility allowing swift connection with devices sharing the same technology. But the most unique feature to this phone is the 1.8-inch Super AMOLED “ticker” display. This gives users visual information including incoming calls to status messages. If you decide to look at information but do not want the main display to light up, then this can be activated through the ticker using the grip sensors on the sides of the phone.

Although Samsung’s handset looks the part and offers some great features, the only downside to it is the running of Android 2.1, but Samsung have commented that it will soon be updated possibly with Android 2.2 or Google’s 2.3 Gingerbread.

For anyone wishing to purchase the Continuum in store, then they will have to wait into November 18, a day before the release of the Droid Pro, and expect to pay in the region of $200 after a $100 mail-in rebate.
