Verizon Samsung Continuum gets software update, still Android 2.1

Verizon’s Samsung Continuum, the first phone to have both a touchscreen and a second, ‘ticker’ display below it, has received a software update. This is now available over-the-air, so if you own a Continuum, your phone should have prompted you to update. If that hasn’t happened yet, keep in mind that the rollout may be staggered, and as such it may take a few days for it to get to you. To force the phone to check for an update, go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates and tap on Check New.

While not being Android 2.2 Froyo or Android 2.3 Gingerbread, this update solves some issues, improves Visual Voice Mail functionality, as well as voice dialing response time when connected to a Bluetooth headset or car kit. You’ll also have the V Cast apps installed once you update.

Here’s the full list of bug fixes courtesy of Verizon:
