New Samsung phone for Verizon

Earlier this week, Verizon announced the arrival of their newest Samsung phone. The Samsung Continuum. The phone was released today (Nov. 11) only for order for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a new two year contract.  On November 18th, the Continuum will be available for purchase.

One of the main things people will notice about this phone is that it has not one, but two Super AMOLED display screens. The main display is 3.4 inches with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution.  The second screen, which is a customizable ticker display, is 1.8 inches.  This ticker display offers users up-to-date news, sports scores, finance, and social networking updates.

The outside of this phone is pretty compact and thin.  It has a 5 megapixel camera with a LED flash.  Along with this camera, it can record video in 720p HD which is a pretty common feature in the newer smartphones.

The phone will be running on Android 2.1 and will have a 1GHz processor making this phone just about as fast as you can get it. It will also have 512MB of ROM and 384 MB of RAM.

This phone is looking to be great.  The only downside is that it comes in one color, black. Which isn’t too bad but to some people, they may want different colors. What do you think?
