Samsung Continuum, Motorola Citrus Launching on November 11

Verizon is expected to release at least two more Android-based handsets next week with the Samsung Continuum and Motorola Citrus.  Readers may recall Motorola announcing the entry-level smart phone last month, only pegging it with a “coming soon” launch date.  The Continuum, on the other hand, has yet to be announced by Samsung or Verizon.  The handset maker has an event scheduled on November 8th where it’s widely expected they will unveil the dual-screen device.

The hardware for the i400 Continuum puts it firmly mid-to-high end of today’s Android smart phones. Features include Android 2.2 with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a 3.4″-inch (480×800 WVGA) Super AMOLED display, a 5-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM and 2GB internal memory.  The secondary screen at the bottom runs 1.8-inches at 96×480 resolution and is designed to show RSS news, weather, stocks, and other notification-like news. Other details include an 8GB microSD card, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), WicX playback, and support for EVDO Rev A, Bluetooth, and GPS.  Launching as the first Samsung Galaxy S phone with Android 2.2, the Continuum looks to also run the TouchWiz 3 user interface.
