Samsung Releases Official Ad Spot for Continuum [VIDEO]

Posted: 09 Nov 2010 11:10 AM PST

It’s a pretty enticing tagline: “Life is a Continuum, Now your Phone is, too.” Right there along with the recent trend to REALLY PUSH for the idea that your phone can organize your life and make it sooo much easier to live. This is the first video ad spot for the Samsung Continuum, released late last night in support of this Samsung Galaxy S series phone complete with 3.4″ main display over 1.8″ screen ticker tape display.

They make it seem very life-fulfilling, for real. It all looks like a really great situation you could be in, taking care of all your instantaneous life changes and letting you do two things at once. “Breaking News Doesn’t Have to Break In” they say, as stock price tickers on the street fling the most recent buys and sells, a dash of feet walk rushedly, a man uses his Continuum in a bar to watch a movie and check the sports score (when, in reality, he’d just be watching the game and drinking a beer,) a woman upgrades her flight status while speaking on speakerphone in a meeting, a man updates his Facebook while watching stock prices rise, and a new man reads a status that leads him to the same bar the other man was sitting at earlier, that earlier man again checking the sports score. “Let the info flow!”

Permanent Root for G2

Posted: 09 Nov 2010 10:56 AM PST

Hooray for XDA! XDA Developers forum member unforgiven512 has just posted a comprehensive list guide on how you, too, can permanently root your T-Mobile G2. It’s scary, it’s hairy, and it can permanently brick your phone FOREVER, but the riches are also at your fingertips. This guide is based on the work of forum member scotty2, and takes you through the process of rooting your G2 step by careful step.

As the folks over there at XDA say, this is a major achievement, and deserves some applause, as this is a goal the developer community has been going after since the release of the device. Now REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING: this is one of those times, even more than other times, that I and all the people in the rest of the world must warn you to be careful. DO NOT do this rooting unless you know what you are doing as ONE MISTAKE will permanently brick your phone.

In other words, JUST FORGET IT ALTOGETHER! In fact, instead of doing this, head over here to the G2 Review we did. Much safer. But if you’re adventurous and cannot be swayed, go over to the XDA forums and get your fill.

Galaxy Tab Shot with CO2 Powered Pistol to Test Gorilla Glass

Posted: 09 Nov 2010 10:28 AM PST

This is my favorite way to test electronics. This and putting phones into a blender (I think you know what I’m talking about.) The following video(s) display the awesome power of Gorilla Glass, installed of course on a Galaxy Tab, by placing a Tab directly in the path of a really awesome CO2 powered pistol. It DOES make a dent, but a relatively small one when you think of how well basically any other bit of tech would stand up against such a blow.

The person behind the gun (and the whole experiment) shows you the power of the gun by blasting a cup made of glass into tiny little bits. If a tiny animal had been in that glass: dead. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME unless you work for an awesome company that will insure you against such awesome insanity.

You may recall earlier this year the original Entourage Edge dual screen tablet surfaced.

The OS of the device is android 1.6 and the OS has been optimized for the hardware. This version is not aimed at educational use according to the maker due to the smaller screens and issues with PDF and ePub readability. The Pocket Edge sells for $399.

HTC EVO 4G records video of “UFO Sighting” in Virginia

Posted: 08 Nov 2010 06:13 PM PST

We happen to hear all the time about different UFO sightings, but this is the first time an Android phone, HTC EVO 4G, has caught a lil footage of a UFO. This isn’t the first time that an Android has gotten a lil T.V. time, the Droid X appeared on How I met Your mother the other day and the EVO appeared on Fringe as well.

Last Wednesday, residents of Centreville, Va said they spotted a bright blue dot moving across the sky without blinking, flashing, or making any sounds. The UFO had no specific route, but was simply flying around. It has not been seen since then and has left residents confused. Even though this hasn’t been proved as extra-terrestrial yet, its cool to see the EVO 4G doing a lil camera work while also getting a lil T.V. time as well. Check out the video below for all of the details.

Samsung Continuum Hands-On

Posted: 08 Nov 2010 04:06 PM PST

So, Samsung’s event this evening wasn’t everything that some people out there may have wanted, but at least we definitely know the Continuum is coming, and now we’ve got some hands-on time with the device. There’s nothing here that we haven’t heard before: it’s still featuring the 1GHz processor under the hood, and you’ll still get that interesting Ticker 1.8-inch display underneath the main one, where all your notifications will be proudly displayed.

The device features a 3.4-inch capacitive touchscreen Super AMOLED display, and you’re getting Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz 3.0 User Interface, too. It won’t be launching with Android 2.2, but instead be landing in store shelves on November 11th with Android 2.1 under the hood. There’s 512MB of ROM, and 384MB of RAM, and you’ll get integrated WiFi.

Yes, Microsoft’s Bing is pre-loaded on the device, as well. We’re still waiting for word on pricing, so stay tuned — hopefully Samsung can tell us a bit more. As soon as we find out, we’ll be sure to update accordingly. Our short time with the device was middle-of-the-road. The device works as well as the Samsung Fascinate, which is already available on Verizon’s network for the same price ($199, after a $100 mail in rebate), but the Continuum’s smaller screen was definitely noticeable. Furthermore, the Ticker is a good idea, but it will take some getting used to for anyone who picks up the device. Check out the hands-on images below, and stay tuned for the video.

Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate coming to Telus Wed.

Posted: 08 Nov 2010 03:27 PM PST

It looks like its official folks. The Samsung Fascinate, the Samsung Galaxy S phone specifically for Verizon, is heading to Telus in Canada. We heard about the device a lil while back coming to Telus, but nothing official. After hearing about the HTC Desire HD possibly going to Telus as well, it surprises me that that the Fascinate will also be going there. The device is set to be released on November 10th(this wednesday).

There will also be a launch event in Toronto for this device as well. The device will run on 3G+, which is normal on Telus.It will intially run Android OS 2.1, but will be upgraded to Android OS 2.2 during the winter. As for pricing details go, you can expect it to probably be around $149.99 on a three year contract or $529.99 with no contract commitments. According to the picture above initial quantities will be limited, so if your interested in the device get on it.

We will keep you updated on the situation of this device.

Samsung Continuum for Verizon Official, Hits Shelves November 11th [Updated]

Posted: 08 Nov 2010 01:33 PM PST

So, Samsung has just come clean on the upcoming Continuum device, featuring the main Super AMOLED display, and then the smaller Ticker on the bottom, where your notifications and RSS Feeds are displayed. The device, courtesy of Samsung’s Twitter account, will be landing in Verizon stores on November 11th.

With the official announcement, we can safely say that the device will more than likely be on hand at Samsung’s press event tonight in some capacity or another. Will it be the main device that they show off? That’s anyone’s guess at this point. But, considering it features the 1GHz processor under the hood, a 1.8 touchscreen beneath the main display working as a dedicated notifications panel, and then a 3.4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen above, it’s certainly possible that it would be the main device.

Stay tuned, as we’ll be at the event, bringing you all the information as it gets announced. Until then, start counting down the days until the 11th.

[Update]: Pricing is as we thought: $199, after a $100 mail-in rebate and after signing a new, two-year contract. Check out the full press release below for more information about the device.
