    It looks like Droid Life busted out another interesting piece of news. The Samsung Continuum (Specs Samsung Continuum Specs) which is a slightly odd-shaped, dual-screened phone will be released on October 29th for Verizon. In addition the LG Vortex, a mid-level phone will also be released at the same time.

    It's an exciting time right now for both Verizon customers and Android in general. Verizon has been the biggest promoter of Android phones so we've seen some huge growth which is good for everyone, it really brings up the level of competition. Now we've got some big releases coming out, both the above as well as the Droid Pro, Droid 2 Global, HTC Merge.... exciting times indeed!

    Is this Samsung Continuum more powerful than the Fascinate I'm about to probably buy in a few days?

    It's a still a 1GHz Hummingbird, but has less memory. My guess would be it's not quite as fast based on the memory.

    I vote dumb. It's pointless when I have widgets that can tell me the weather, time and stocks. Samsung -1 for 2 screens.
    Also about 128mb of memory seems to be reserved for graphics.

    Trying out Sprint for a month. Sent from my Evo using Tapatalk. 4G is pointless when you don't live in one of the few available network areas.
