Samsung Continuum

We’re fully expecting the Samsung Continuum to be announced at Sammy’s New York City event on Nov. 8, but that doesn’t mean the phone will be available that day. (And that’s how it goes, more often than not.) But it likely won’t be long after that before the dual-screen phone will be available for purchase. Phone Arena has a screen shot showing the Continuum available in all Verizon retail channels on Nov. 11 — the same day that Big Red’s Galaxy Tab goes on sale.

You can see the leaked shot after the break, which has a slew of expected specks and answers one big question for us: The Continuum has a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED screen on the main display. In the meantime, be sure to check out our preview of the Samsung Continuum, as well as our video hands-on, and ask us more in the forums.

Oh, and in slightly lower-end news, the Motorola Citrus (see our hands-on) will be available on Nov. 11, too. [Phone Arena]

T-Mobile Comet

If the T-Mobile Comet has piqued your interest, the read on, friend. The phone formerly known as the Huawei Ideos is expected to drop this week — Nov. 3 to be exact — and we’ve been handed every last little details on the phone. It’s not being billed has a high-end device, and nor should it be. But it is being billed as the first entry-level Google phone (Google experience, that is), with Android 2.2, Wifi b/g/n and all the bells and whistles that come along with that title.

Want the full lowdown? Join us after the break.

Motorola-Apple lawsuit

Another day, another patent lawsuit. And this time around it’s Apple suing Motorola over multitouch on nearly all its Android phones — basically everything up to and including the Droid X. In addition to the multitouch infringement claims, there’s also:

  • Object-Oriented System Locator System
  • Touch Screen Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Determining Commands by Applying Neuristics
  • Method and Apparatus for Displaying and Accessing Control and Status Information in a Computer System.
  • Support for Custom User-Interaction Elements in a Graphical, Event-Driven Computer System.

Needless to say, this will take a while. And, no, if Moto loses it doesn’t mean your phone will be taken away — it just means Moto will have to either change how it’s doing things — and/or pay a bucketload of money to Apple. Get the full breakdown on the suit at the source link. [Patently Apple via 9 to 5 Mac]

Droid 2 Global at Costco

Remember how the Droid 2 Global had a couple of SKU numbers on that leaked Verizon rebate sheet? Looks like that’s because it’s going to be available in a couple of colors, according to Costco’s inventory system. There’s the white version that we’ve already seen, plus traditional black. As for exactly when it’s going to drop? We’re still expecting sometime in the fourth quarter — which begins Monday. [BGR]

Facebook Mobile

We just received an invite to a "Mobile Event at Facebook HQ" scheduled for Wednesday Nov 3.  No press release, no fanfare, no inkling of what it might be, just the invitation.  When thinking to ourselves, "Why would Facebook invite Android Central to their big Mobile shin-dig?" we can come up with a few answers.  Maybe there’s going to be a new and improved Facebook client for Android with deep ties into Gingerbread.  Maybe there really is going to be a Facebook phone.  Or maybe it’s our dashing good looks and the great conversation we would bring along.  We’ll know more Wednesday.
