The much-rumored Samsung Continuum has made an appearance on a Verizon Wireless website, providing the first official confirmation of the phone’s imminent release. The Continuum popped up on a special page focused on holiday gift ideas, which features three Galaxy S devices from Samsung: the Fascinate, the Galaxy Tab and the Continuum. Though no other information is provided on Verizon’s site, the Continuum will reportedly feature a 3.4-inch Super-AMOLED touchscreen display above a secondary 1.8-inch Super-AMOLED display, mobile hotspot capability, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video recording, 2GB of internal storage, microSDHC support and Android 2.1. The Samsung Continuum is expected to be announced at a Samsung media event on November 8th, with a release date rumored to follow on November 11th.
According to a set of newly leaked screen shots purported to depict Verizon Wireless’ internal system, three new phones will be released by the nation’s top carrier next week. The most impressive of the trio is certainly the Samsung Continuum, a unique Android smartphone many believe will be unveiled at Samsung’s event next week. The Continuum features a 3.4-inch Super-AMOLED touchscreen display with a secondary 1.8-inch Super-AMOLED display beneath it, mobile hotspot capability, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video recording, 2GB of internal storage, microSDHC support and Android 2.1. The entry-level Motorola CITRUS, announced last month, features a 3-inch QVGA touchscreen display, Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR and mapping services powered by Microsoft Bing. Finally, the Samsung Zeal is an update to the Alias 2, featuring an E Ink QWERTY keypad, a 2.6-inch QVGA display and a 2-megapixel camera. All three of these handsets are rumored to be launching on November 11th. Hit the break for more details on each of these upcoming phones. More →
