Samsung denies Nexus Two smartphone Some of the biggest news of the past week has been the rumored unconfirmed launch of the Nexus Two, the successor to Google's very powerful, but ultimately failed smartphone.
The new device was expected to be unveiled by its maker, Samsung, on November 8th during a media event.

Today, however, the phone maker has denied the Nexus Two exists, saying all the rumors are "simply not true."

The November 8th event will actually be to officially launch the Continuum smartphone, a Verizon Android 2.2 device that has two displays.

Making the Continuum noteworthy is the small secondary screen. When the phone is active, the second screen shows off the date, time and weather. When inactive it will show any new messages, emails, missed calls, voice mails, IMs, social notifications and more.

Looks like we will have to wait a bit longer for a sequel to the Nexus One, especially one running 2.3 Gingerbread.

androidandme.com said today that's it's still going to come, and that the translation from the website saying it wasn't, was sloppy. It's funny how one tiny website gets translated poorly, and then hundreds of websites report the same thing. A website will say, it's coming, and then the next day, it's not. I'm not putting this website down (I love this website), it's EVERY other website that does this.

This is just an example of why you should never always believe what you read online without some concrete evidence, not because iPhone biased websites like Gizmodo, Engadget, and CNET says so. I still got my hopes up though, any website can confirm or deny it, but we'll all see for ourselves next week whether it is coming or not. I just want to get the wait over and done with so I can replace my dying 5 year old cellphone. If this is true, I'm definitely getting it, if not I'm picking up an unlocked Samsung Focus, or the Fascinate Nov.8.
