Samsung Continuum Internet spot, hands on

If you think the Samsung Continuum’s (effective) dual screen layout and “ticker tape” display are a gimmicky novelty, you’re half right; it certainly does pack some gimmicky advertizing punch. But a novelty, this thing is not. The ticker tape replaces the notifications bar for some functions, like showing you a new text message; functions like a smaller main display for others, like RSS updates; and provides surizingly sensible and practical functions like the next turn in VZ Navigator.

So what, right? You can do all of those things with existing phones. But Verizon and Samsung are betting that that little strip will become part of your daily routine, and they show us how in the Internet spot below. The second video is from Android Central, who went hands-on with the device at last night’s unveiling.
