Dual screen Samsung Continuum revealed

Samsung has officially announced its new smartphone in the Galaxy S range, the Samsung Continuum.

As we reported earlier, the phone’s most interesting feature is a separate 1.8 inch front-facing display that runs along the bottom of the handset.

This essentially acts as a ticker, feeding you essential information such as messages, updates and incoming calls, without having to power-up the main battery-sucking 3.4 inch super AMOLED screen.

The mini-screen screen turns on whenever an update is received, or whenever you grip both sides of the phone.

You can also personalise the ticker with your own news feeds, app updates, or anything else you need to keep track of.

The Continuum also packs a 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 720p video recording, wi-fi, and Bluetooth.

Oddly the phone only comes pre-installed with Android 2.1, but Samsung says 2.2 will be on the way.

The Continuum has so far just been announced for the US market for $199 on a two year contract. There’s no word yet on a UK/Europe release.

So much for the Nexus Two then
