The Samsung Behold 2 passed through the Bluetooth SIG and came out with a spec sheet detailing that it'll likely run Android. To quote the description:
The Samsung SGH-T939 is a GSM phone, featuring a 3.2″ AMOLED full touch screen and WiFi connectivity, giving users access to Google Mobile services and full web browsing at blazing speeds.”
We're pretty sure you guys had no idea that the original Behold was so successful that it warranted a sequel (we didn't) but if the Behold 2 runs Android, this may be one of the few times the sequel is better than the original (the original ran Samsung's own OS). Regardless, we're confused on why Samsung would want to use the Behold brand name for a new device and direction--why boggle yourself down with a device name no one remembers?
The original Samsung Behold launched on T-Mobile and we'd expect the same from the Behold 2. We'll keep an eye on this one for you but in the mean time, we're pretty sure this device may work out better for your Android tastes.
