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.

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.

Instead of an Android smart phone awaiting me inside, I found pieces to what felt like a viral puzzle game.
