Samsung Continuum brings 2 screens to one device

If you were getting bored of the recent smartphones design that started to repeat themselves, here is something new from Samsung; a dual screen for enhanced functionality of your smartphone.

Meet Samsung Continuum.
A monster phone, part of the Galaxy family, but with a twist in its' front: 2 screens instead of one.

Wait, what was that? 2 screens instead of one? both of them in the front of the phone?

You have to see it to understand it:

The purpose of the second screen is to show ongoing notifications (does it mean the notification bar sucks? I think it does…), incoming calls, showing signs for new messages, emails, and other push notifications based on user profiles.

I think it's great. Not sure how powerful it would be, but whenever I get a new SMS while I'm playing angry birds, I would usually prefer to see it WHILE playing rather to get a popup like in the iPhone that stops everything for a few seconds… Still, this is something you need to see in order to really understand.

Yeah, this definitely looks great.The 2 screens are a 3.4-inch main screen and a 1.8-inch ticker display which feeds real-time information about news, emails, and missed calls. I'm scared that this additional screen will have big effect on the batter life of the phone. I will still be interested in trying it out though.

Cool? It is... 2 screens is something new at the market. And I don't think it will take much battery. At least I hope so.
