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.
As we enter the new year, Samsung is rumored to be prepping follow-up devices to their Galaxy Tab lineup and their flagship Galaxy S phones.
Could Verizon be readying Android 2.2 for their Galaxy S series handset by the end of the week/month/year?
There is no doubting the success of the Galaxy S phones, made by Samsung. In the US alone, each of the four major carriers (that’s Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile)
It looks like the Nexus S isn’t the only Gingerbread phone in town anymore. Supercurio, who was also the first to root the Nexus S, has ported the ROM from the new Google flagship device to the Galaxy S.
The carrier has dropped the prices of two of their Android-based devices. Are they short term price breaks or are they here to stay?
We’ve seen our share of corporate speak and PR mumbo jumbo before but Samsung might have just become the current king. When asked by Pocket-Lint whether or not the Galaxy S would see Android 2.3 ‘Gingerbread’, the handset maker replied with a very vague, albeit technical technical sounding answer. After reading the entire response a few times, the best we can gather is that they are still looking into the matter.
The figures are in and it looks like the third quarter (Q3 ’10) was very kind to both Samsung and Android. Gartner has just reported that the handset manufacturer accounted for 32.1 percent of all Android smart phones sold in the United States over the previous three month period.
Color us surprised (can you hear the dripping sarcasm?). The UK arm of T-Mo has once again missed a target date for the 2.2 rollout to Galaxy S devices. Techradar.com is reporting that T-Mo recently posted an update on their support forum about the fact that they did not rollout the update on December 1st like they promised. Here is a quote from the support forum:
On Friday, November 19th a firmware update was leaked by a Samsung insider relating to the GT-I9200, also rumored to be the Galaxy S2. The firmware is being looked over by
Take a look at the quote from the Samsung Mobile Canada Facebook page: We’d like to acknowledge the tremendous interest in the Froyo (Android 2.2) upgrade for Galaxy S series
Consider this more of a courtesy reminder, but T-Mobile is now selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet runs $399 with a two-year service agreement, $599 if you chose to buy it outright.
Samsung just took to twitter to announce the dual-screen Continuum handset ahead of their press event scheduled for later this evening. We’re only a few hours away from the official debut of the phone, but we know it’s landing on Verizon on November 11th.
Samsung UK has officially started rolling Android 2.2 out to their beloved GT-I9000 Galaxy S handset. According to their twitter account, the update has begun already and will hit everyone by the end of November.
The Samsung Galaxy S has been a wildly popular phone, gaining a spot on all four major carriers in the United States. But what about outside the US? In Japan,
