SlashGear unboxes the Samsung Continuum

The Samsung Continuum has been quite the focus of the internet before it's launch, and we have now gotten our time with the famed double touchscreen device. Boasting a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED as the prime display and a 1.8-inch "ticker" display this phone is certainly not just another Android device.

First impressions of the device are generally solid. However, the device doesn't feel as rugged and well built as some HTC models, feeling a bit "plasticky." Android 2.1 runs smoothly on the Samsung 1GHz Hummingbird processor, and the phone seems be able to handle Android 2.2 and potentially even 2.3 in the future, however no word has been said about Samsung's plans for updates on the Continuum.

The main difference of this phone is the ticker display. It's actually not a separate display as we were lead to believe, it's one large Super AMOLED that has been segmented with a printed bar across the screens lower half.
