Samsung Continuum gets software update, V CAST Apps along for the ride

Chris Ziegler

Seriously, Continuum owners, you couldn't have possibly thought you dodged this bullet, right? Big Red's pushing an update today that's kind of a double-edged sword; on the one hand, you get a boatload of bug fixes to visual voicemail, messaging, WeatherBug, and more. But on the other hand, the update will automatically install V CAST Apps, Verizon's app store, whether you like it or not. We'd like the option of choosing an update either with or without additional software on carrier-branded phones these days -- but we suppose we can understand the complexities of forking updates like that. At any rate, this one's over the air, so expect a notification from Verizon on your phone shortly.
