The breakneck pace of awesome Android phones continues: this is a leaked picture of the Verizon Samsung Continuum, an Android phone with two OLED displays. One screen acts as the main display while the second screen acts as the "Ticker".

The "Ticker", as its called now, will show notifications, RSS updates, weather forecasts, and presumably more tools of that nature. It's likely that the "Ticker" will give users a quick-access method to use their phones without needing to fire up the big screen. It's an interesting concept that should add versatility and give the Continuum a hallmark feature.

Other than that, the Continuum seems to be another Samsung Galaxy S device. No word on availability yet but it's supposedly headed to Big Red. [Engadget]

That's actually a pretty awesome feature.

However, I must say I really don't understand the complaints that once you buy an Apple product, it's already obsolete. Seems like by the time you've begun to think about buying an Android phone, 6 better ones have already been released.

I know as an iPhone user, I've been frustrated at times with having to upgrade once every year or two to stay current (which I know is the trend with most electronics)... but it seems as though this would be even more frustrating for the diehard Android fans. Does this bug you guys?

Not trying to start a flamewar, I'm actually curious. I think if I had a Galaxy S, this would drive me nuts.
