    Samsung Continuum Launches for $199


    Just days away from the dual screen Samsung Continuum Phone launch and new details have leaked to confirm the $199 pricetag. November 11th is still the expected release date and price-wise this phone will fall inline with the pricing of the big boys. The full retail / off-contract price is set to $579.99, 2 year contract pricing is $299.99, 1 year contract pricing is $369.99. There will be a $100 rebate offered in addition to the contract pricing that will drop the end pricing down to $199/2 Year and $269 for 1 year. We should get the official announcement from Samsung and Verizon tomorrow so stay tuned! While the phone as some cool features, the price tag and Android 2.1 might be a show stopper for most.

    Anyone have this phone on their xmas list?

    The lack of interest in this thread speaks for itself. Cool idea, terrible execution.

    I think that the ticket screen is just dumb. I have widgets that can do the same thing, stocks, weather and news. What more does it offer that I would want? Even if it could display text messages I need to use the big screen to respond to them. Well see how this one pans out.

    It's mentioned as a 'ticker' screen, but all I see it as is advertising space... ads that are ALWAYS there.

    Can't agree really. This thing is spec'd the same as the Fascinate, except it has the "ticker" and the main display is a 3.4" Super Amoled instead of 4".
