Samsung Continuum made official, ships November 11

Samsung Continuum made officialVerizon ended weeks of leaking today by confirming the launch of the Samsung Continuum. The Android 2.1 phone is the first major phone with a secondary display and uses a 400x96 AMOLED ticker to show live news feeds, weather, the time and other details without having to switch to an app or turn on the main screen. Just grabbing the bottom of the phone turns on the ticker display through a sensor.

The phone fits into the Galaxy S badging and still uses an 800x480 Super AMOLED display, but at a smaller 3.4 inches to accommodate the second screen. Samsung's design is similar on the inside and totes a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a five-megapixel camera with 720p recording, albeit only with 8GB of storage built-in rather than the 16GB of the Fascinate.

Like the earlier phone, the Continuum should come with Bing set as the default and may prevent using Google widgets. Pricing puts it at $199 on a contract and after rebate.
