Good chance you heard plenty of hype over the course of the past few months hype some big crazy Samsung unveiling in New York City this evening which had revved up a lot of us, some speculating that they’d unleash the first Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone, maybe the Nexus Two, the Galaxy Tab perhaps…
Nope. Instead all they did was present a phone whose specs had leaked a while ago that is much like the other Galaxy phones except it has a smaller screen but it has a second very short screen beneath the softkeys they call the ticker, noting that they were inspired by Times Square and some real time news ticker.
So it’s got that, a 1GHz processor, 8GB chip (thanks), and a 5mp camera. And it doesn’t have the Google package, they did the Bing/Samsung switcharoo again with Verizon. So no Google Maps with Navigation but that’s okay because VZ Navigator gets the job done. They didn’t even put Froyo on it let alone Gingerbread, just Éclair. That’s just wrong. Called the Continuum. Not even worth linking.
Samsung you pissed plenty of people off today – except maybe for the people who attended your event with your open bar and cheasy puffs. Better step your game up. Damnit Samsung.
HTC, your serve.
