At an event in New York yesterday, Samsung announced a new device in the Galaxy S family. Dubbed as Continuum (SCH-i400) the phone sports two Super AMOLED displays – a 3.4-inch one as the main screen and an 1.8-inch one acting as a ticker display. The ticker display can be customized by user to show content like news, social networking updates, notifications etc.
The Android 2.1 running is spec’d similarly to other Galaxy S devices like the 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 3G, 5MP camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11n, 3.5mm headphone jack, GPS, Allshare, Social Hub and microSD card slot (up to 32GB). Another interesting feature is the integration of a Grip Sensor that lights up the ticker display automatically when the bottom sides of the phone are touched.
The Continuum will start selling from November 11 for $199.99 on contract and $100 mail-in rebate.
