Samsung Continuum compared in head-to-head battle with other Verizon heavyweights
Samsung Continuum is set to pack with 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 512MB of ROM and 384MB of RAM, 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, along with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and 3G mobile hotspot for up to five devices.
These are the main facts put in a list and, in all honesty, when the specs of the Continuum are compared to the specs of the DROID 2, DROID X, DROID Incredible and Samsung Fascinate, there aren't any striking differences, but Samsung Continuum has one very obvious advantage – the combination of two Super AMOLED screens.
The main one is a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch-screen display with a resolution of 480x800, while the secondary display is just 1.8-inch Super AMOLED and its resolution is 96x480.
The second display's power consumption is obviously lower and it will be used as a status updater with RSS feeds, weather reports, stock information and so on when you don't need all the functions of the Continuum.
The only downside of the Continuum is that it will be packed with Android 2.1 at launch, but we can only hope that it will get the Froyo treatment in the very near future. The handset's rumoured release date is November 11.

not interested, I dont understand why there is not a developer that can just turn on and use the botom half to 3/4 inch while the rest is off. I am pretty sure the super amoled screen is not using any energy on a black screen lik the tft or lcd or bacisicly the others

This isnt right, the droid X has 8GB of phone memory, along with the 16GB micro SD.
