Samsung Continuum gets pictured, dual display device headed to Verizon

What do we have here? It looks like the Galaxy S branded Samsung Continuum; a device with not one, but two displays. Engadget was sent in several images of the device whose most notable feature is an additional, smaller display below the standard Android soft-keys. The secondary display, which is being called the “ticker,” displays date, time, RSS feed, weather, and other pertinent information.  The ticker activates itself automatically when you grip the lower half of the Continuum. Pretty slick. The device is reported to have a side-mounted micro-SD card slot and dedicated camera button as well. We can see why Verizon started running the buy-one get-one promotion on the Fascinate just weeks after launch. More →

Android 2.2 for Motorola DROID X leaked

If you’re a Motorola DROID X owner with a hankering for tinkering, today is a good day for you. The DROID World forums have a leaked build of Android 2.2 ready to go for your beloved DX. The leaked OTA upgrade is in zip format, meaning all you have to do is drop it on your micro-SD card slot (you do have to completely erase your device) and run the update. We’ve put it on one of our DROID Xs and we have to say… so far we’re impressed! The phone seems a bit snappier, there are some nice visual tweaks, and we’re enjoying Google Voice Actions on the 4.3-inch screen. Given the polish on this leak, we’re thinking Froyo for the DROID X has to be right around the corner. Hit the jump to see a quick little video we put together of the new goodies. More →

Dell Streak taken down to screws by ifixit

The gang over at ifixit have given the Dell Streak its official baptism by taking the gigantic handset right down to the screws. The team notes that the Streak contains a Snapdragon processor, a 5 megapixel camera that “closely resembles” the iPhone 4’s, Gorilla Glass, and a 2 GB non-user accessible micro-SD card. On a scale of 1 to 10, judging how difficult the device was to take part (10 being the easiest), ifixit rated the Streak an 8. Hit the read link to see the blog’s notes and the carnage. More →
