Samsung Continuum and Samsung Galaxy Tab dummies arrive at Verizon
Next Thursday promises to be an exciting day at Verizon's retail stores. The nation's largest carrier will be launching a number of devices including the Motorola DROID Pro, the Motorola DROID 2 Global, HTC Merge, Samsung Continuum and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

For those interested in the latter two Samsung devices, you can run over to your local Verizon store and check out the dummy models of those two devices. The Continuum features what the Korean based manufacturer is calling the "Ticker" which is a 1.8 inch Super AMOLED screen near the bottom of the phone that has resolution of 96 x 480 pixels. The "Ticker" will show you alerts and messages without running your battery down. Some accessories for the phone have already been arriving at Big Red's retail locations.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been dissected in every possible way since its introduction. Needless to say, Verizon has high hopes for the 7 inch tablet, powered by Android 2.2. With front and rear facing cameras, Adobe Flash Player and a more pocketable form factor, the tablet should attract those who think that the Apple iPad is too cumbersome.

With a large number of devices to choose from next Thursday, Verizon customers need to decide which model to buy. By checking out the dummy units at the store, you might be able to eliminate some of the potential names now to make your actual purchase go more smoothly.

what i dont understand is why the samsung fascinate is said to be getting an android 2.2 update and the continuum to have 2.1.. this really seems odd. wouldnt you think that the older phone would just stay with the old system and the new phone would get the new system.. things are not adding up here for me.

It's not as simple as, 2.2 is done now every single phone will get it. Not to mention these phones are made to have software upgrades. Do you want your new phone of 2 months to be out of date when a similar model comes out?
