Samsung Continuum and LG Vortex Launching October 29th on Verizon

Remember the oddly shaped, dual-screened Samsung Continuum that was rumored to be heading to Verizon?  Our sources have it pegged for an October 29th release along with the LG Vortex, another middle-of-the-road Android device.  Talk about Android overload.  With these 2 devices hitting store shelves at the end of October and the Droid Pro, D2 Global, HTC Merge, and the Motorola Citrus coming only 2 weeks later, are we starting to think there may be too many options?

Just give us the Motorola Olympus already.

Cheers money!

Have additional info or tips?  Submit them to Droid Life!

    Well done! Nice review about Samsung Continuum and LG Vortex Launching ! This really helps me to find the answers to my question. Hoping that you will continue posting an article having a useful information. Thanks a lot!

    Why would anyone on vzw care about the Olympus? It's an AT&T phone.

    Honestly I wanted the pro until I saw the resolution of the screen. I just don't think I could give up my incredible for that. And I am one of those who actually likes sense and the way things are handled. Personally I hate blur. Oh well maybe next year the droid pro 2 will have a high resolution screen???

    That lock screen is awesome.

    Options are great, but it really is starting to look like there are too many…

  • RoadsterHD1

    We needs Spec's…..

  • JTE

    and I thought I had a hard time choosing between the incredible and the x… how are people new to android going to choose? I seriously doubt the sales reps will be able to give them a good comparison.

    So many options, but none for me. Still waiting for T2 and will try to make it with my Droid1 with limited space for apps.

    Do we have any solid spec info on the Continuum? Is it spec'd as highely as the Fascinate? And is Verizon still going to treat it like some low end featurephone despite competing, if not beating, phones like the DROID 2 or DROID X spec wise?

      from what i understand it has the same specs as the fascinate, but with a 3.7 or 3.5 inch screen with a smaller amoled screen at the bottom for notifications.

    Not too many options, they're trying to up sell the lighter user to a Android phone with the new $15 data plan… makes sense to me

    Seriously, Kellex and tim. You guys need to port the puzzle unlock to droid phones

    • kellex

      Hah do not say that publicly. :P

    3G phones are sooooo 2009!

    Does anyone know if the puzzle unlock has been ported to the Droid??

    • Pandemic187

      Pretty sure this is a UI they created, so probably not – for now at least.

    • Mr. Joe

      I believe some lock screen replacements have it.

    I really want the Droid Pro. I am not going to give up my X, but if I can finagle my way into getting a Pro, too, I will love it. It will bring me back to my days of a portrait kb with my Blackberry.

    i like the choices, but it seems like there's android overload on middle devices…the real power users want the dual core tegras and tablets….come on already.

    • Pandemic187

      I want neither…

    • EC8CH

      Android Overload…. I like the sound of that, or maybe just Droid Overload!

  • tbaybe

    humm…. interesting!

  • qmartman711

    That additional notification screen looks sweet. Definitely save more power if you are just checking the clock and notifications…however, unless it's deactivated..it should probably be up top i think . I dont like the menu buttons in between two screens. I bet there will be some fun ROMs with that device.

    • Lakerzz

      Seems like it would need 2 seperate unlock buttons to be able to do this though (unlock the bottom screen to check the time, etc.)…idk.
