Spending Some Time With The Samsung Continuum (Review)

A sexy, sleek new Android device from Verizon Wireless brings a little twist to makes it stand out on its own. While it sports the Galaxy S logo many are familiar with, the Continuum separates itself with a few distinctions. The smaller 3.4″ Super AMOLED screen really is a beauty, just like all the other Galaxy S devices. The 1.8″ ticker display is the first thing to stand out & separate the Continuum from the rest of the pack. Aside from a few dislikes, the albeit gimmicky device should land in the hands of many Verizon Wireless customers. Best suited for those with smaller hands that find a typical 4.3″ display to be too large, but don’t want to sacrifice the speed of the ultra fast Hummingbird CPU.
