After a rather
large complement of leaks


, Samsung has finally confirmed its Continuum phone for Verizon, via Twitter of all places. The phone will ship on November 11th. Samsung is billing it as the "first phone with a dedicated ticker display," referring to the secondary 1.8-inch color screen below the capacitive touch buttons. There's a Samsung Mobile event happening at 6PM EST that will undoubtedly shed more light on this Android handset, but for now we expect the specs to be in line with other Galaxy S-series handsets. You know, except for the ticker part. Samsung is also proud to announce that it's shipped 3 million Galaxy S phones in the US, a sizable chunk of the 7 million or so
sold globally so far


.

Update: We've got PR! Check it out after the break. Here's the feature breakdown:
  • 3.4-inch Super AMOLED primary display, 1.8-inch Super AMOLED secondary "ticker" display.
  • "Grip sensor" lets you touch the bottom sides of the phone to light up the ticker.
  • Android 2.1 (ouch).
  • Bing Maps / Bing Search (double ouch).
  • Samsung 1GHz Hummingbird processor.
  • Six-axis sensor + accelerometer.
  • 5 megapixel camera, shoots 720p video.
  • 802.11n WiFi.
  • 8GB microSD card included.
  • $200 on two-year contract after $100 mail-in rebate.
Update 2:
Hands-on
