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.

Is the Galaxy S Getting Gingerbread? Samsung Can’t Say for Certain

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.
