Verizon to launch Moto Citrus, Samsung Continuum and Zeal on Nov 11


Over the Halloween weekend, Phone Arena received word that Verizon will launch the totally lust-worthy Samsung Continuum — as well as the entry-level Android-powered Motorola Citrus, and the utterly forgettable Samsung Zeal — on November 11.

You can be forgiven for not instantly knowing what these phones are, so let me take a moment to remind you.

The Samsung Continuum is the Galaxy S variant with the secondary, 1.8″ ticker-style display that got me rather excited last month. It runs Android 2.2 (presumably with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI), a 3.4″ 480×800 Super-AMOLED display, a 5MP camera with LED Flash, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 2GB internal + an 8GB MicroSD card.

The Motorola Citrus (I make a point of ignoring Motorola’s all uppercase names) is an entry-level, Android 2.1 totin’ smartphone, that is made from 25% post-consumer recycled plastic and is both PVC and BFR free. It has a 3” screen of unspecified resolution, a 3MP camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, EVDO, and 2GB microSD storage.

The Samsung Zeal is somewhat a misnomer, as it’s only a featurephone, which — if you’re reading a blog about mobile phones — I’m pretty sure you’re not going to be interested in. It looks to be an Alias 2, but I can’t be sure what — if any — updates have been made. It’s standout feature is an e-ink full QWERTY keyboard.

Sadly, the leak didn’t mention anything of price, but you can take a look at the accompanying screenshots in the gallery below. You know, for kicks.
