Samsung Unveiling a New Android Device on November 8 [UPDATE]

We just received an invitation to an upcoming Samsung Mobile event for November 8th.  Keeping with their tradition of playing it coy, they only promise a “new Android device”.  Looking at the icons in the image and the stock exchange looking tickers in the background, we’ll go ahead and predict a stock Android handset.  Rumors have been growing over the last few days and weeks that Samsung was working on a new device that is said to be stock Android user interface.  Now the question becomes, which Android version are we looking at?  The Galaxy S series phones run Android 2.1 while the Galaxy Tab has 2.2.  The recent sighting of a giant Gingerbread Man has us drooling over the idea of a 2.3 phone!

UPDATE: An hour later and I realize that this could simply be the Samsung Continuum.  You know, the phone with the second screen “ticker” across the bottom.  Duh.  If this is the case, we can forget about seeing the phone in time for this Friday.
