The Samsung Behold II is finally getting updated from cupcake (Android 1.5), but it's not exactly what you'd expect. It's a big drawn out mess of pulled youtube videos, supposed broken promises, random forum posts, and even threat of some sort of legal action. Thankfully the good folks over at Phone Scoop reached out for the official word from Samsung and Kim Titus, the Director of PR for Samsung Telecommunications America, let them know that the Behold II will indeed be updated, but only to Donut (Android 1.6).
According to Samsung, the Behold II is not upgradable beyond Android 1.6. To sweeten the blow a little bit, Samsung says they will also offer the Swype keyboard, an improved media player, improved bluetooth capabilities, and the Android core apps (the apps like Gmail, Maps, or Talk) would be getting an upgrade. We don't like it any more than you do, but this is how legacies are built. [Phone Scoop]
