Verizon’s Samsung Continuum amazingly gets updated to Android 2.2 Froyo

Verizon’s Samsung Continuum has just received an update to Android 2.2 Froyo, taking it well into 2010. Yes, almost two years after the 2.2 revision of Android was announced, Verizon and Samsung decided to grace Continuum owners with this update. So get that bubbly ready, will you?

The Samsung Continuum is that odd device which has a second ‘ticker’ screen underneath its main touchscreen, supposedly bringing the convenience (?) of the news ticker seen on television to your smartphone.

It’s safe to say that not many have bought the Continuum, which launched running Android 2.1 around the time Google was announcing Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But for those of you who have, today should be the second happiest day of your life.

To get Android 2.2 running on your Continuum, you’ll need to install two different updates (perhaps fitting for a device with two screens). The first is version EB01 and this just prepares your phone for the actual update, which is version EC09.

Both updates will come over-the-air directly to your phone, and you won’t need a computer to install them. Verizon provides full update details in this PDF, and update instructions in this PDF.
