Samsung Continuum Hands-On (Video)

The Samsung Continuum was shown at a press event tonight in New York City and we were there to get some hands-on with the new device. It’s got a single capacitive Super AMOLED screen with 3 sections to it. A primary section holds the normal Android operating system display area, a middle section displays the capacitive menu, home, back, and search buttons, while a 3rd section shows ticker information. This can be anything from social media updates, notifications, time, weather, etc. Samsung calls this very innovative, and it is, but it’s also very reminiscent of the Mobinova ICE from a few years back. What is even more innovative is the grip sensors that turn on the lower ticker-tape screen just by holding the device. That’s a great way to see your latest notifications right away without having to reach for the power button. Just hold the phone in your hand and the little screen shows you some info.

Surprisingly, the Continuum is not as wide as the Samsung Vibrant however in the hand it feels very similar. It’s got the same lightweight plasticy feeling.
