Ticker display

The unique aspect of the Continuum is its secondary ticker display at the bottom of the phone. Measuring 1.8 inches, the window shows you basic information, such as time, date, and weather, and also acts a notification system and real-time newsfeed. You can activate just the ticker display by touching the sides of the phone at the bottom.
