Samsung unveiled its new Android 2.1 smartphone – the Continuum at a media event yesterday. The specifications are not entirely new to us – check our features comparison article – though the official announcement has added credibility to all the rumors and speculations that have been doing the rounds so far. In case you missed it, the Samsung Continuum will feature a 3.4″ capacitive touchscreen WVGA display and will run on a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and a 512MB ROM. This is a dual display device with a 1.8″ ticker display beneath the actual display that will display notifications for messages besides updating the user on RSS feed updates, weather information, sports scores, caller info,etc.

The device will be launching on Verizon and you can buy one starting November 11. The price of the Continuum is expected to be around $199 – that is with a $100 mail-in rebate and after you sign a two year contract.
