Samsung Continuum Android Phone [Verizon Wireless]
The innovative Samsung Continuum for Verizon Wireless brings a fully integrated entertainment, messaging, and social networking experience to your mobile phone, thanks to its open and innovative Android 2.1 platform. It’s also the world’s first smartphone designed with a dedicated ticker display–placed right below the 3.4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display– which provides you with up-to-the-minute news, sports, finance, and social networking updates for maximized multitasking.
With integrated Google technology, the Continuum brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services millions use every day, including Google Search by voice, Google Maps with Street View, GTalk instant messaging (with presence capabilities), YouTube, and Picasa. The Continuum also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you’ll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
The Samsung Continuum is compatible with the V Cast Music with Rhapsody service, which enables you to purchase songs through your phone and download them via the fast Verizon Wireless 3G EV-DO data network. You’ll also stay on course thanks to the VZ Navigator GPS turn-by-turn direction service. And with the optional Visual Voice Mail service, you’ll be able to quickly and easily scroll through your messages and pick the ones you want to listen to.
In addition to high-speed connectivity on the fast and reliable Verizon Wireless 3G network, you can also share the built-in 3G Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi among five devices–laptop, another phone, MP3 player, and more (additional service charge).
The Continuum’s 3.4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display provides brighter, thinner, and higher-resolution than traditional screens. Samsung’s innovative display technology makes watching movies, viewing videos and playing games come to life like never before, even in bright light and outdoor environments. And messaging is simple and easy with the Fascinates virtual QWERTY keyboard with Swype technology, which allows you to input text faster and in a more intuitive way with one continuous finger motion across the screen keyboard.
Other features include ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Wi-Fi calling via Skype, 5-megapixel camera with HD 720p video capture, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, included 8 GB microSD memory card (plus 2 GB internal memory), multi-format music and video player, and up to 7 hours of talk time.
