Samsung Behold II Officially Runs Android, Heading to T-Mobile

And the Samsung Behold 2 II runs Android! And it's going to be offered on T-Mobile! And it'll be available in time for the holidays! 

In all seriousness, the Samsung Behold II is a device that's been relatively overlooked here at Android Central but now since it's official, we think it deserves another look (especially since the targeted release date is this year!). Take a look at the specs:

  • 3.2 inch AMOLED screen
  • TouchWiz UI (3D cube menu for multimedia access)
  • 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and video
  • 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • microSD expansion

There's no doubt that T-Mobile is building the best-to-date Android product portfolio--the T-Mobile G1, myTouch 3G, Motorola CLIQ and now Samsung Behold II--are all wonderful options for any Android user. With Sprint (and Cellular South) being the only other Android game around, T-Mobile has started to corner the Android smartphone market. Time will tell if they can maintain their head start.

We're very interested to see how the TouchWiz UI will work with Android and more specifically, excited to see if Android can become the media powerhouse the Behold II aims to be. We're not even putting words in T-Mobile or Samsung's mouth, to quote T-Mobile product marketing director, Travis Warren:

“The premium screen and quality camera coupled with Samsung’s innovative cube menu makes the Behold II a multimedia powerhouse that’s made even stronger by T-Mobile’s high-speed 3G network.”

We're looking forward to the end of 2009 because it's looking to be new Android phone release after new Android phone release. So who's excited for the Behold II? And does anyone else think that the Behold II should just be an entirely new name?

  • Weird/ironic that the G2 becomes the "MyTouch" (possibly worst name of all time) yet this totally fresh piece of Android ass gets named of after a piece of garbage it barely has anything in common with. Marketinghas never been a strength of theirs (see HotSpot @ Home "Jimmy" debacle).
  • Well, goodbye Cliq. I'm waiting for this.
  • I would like to see what CPU is in this device. And generally, I would like to see this mentioned more often.
  • I concur hopefully it has something better than the 528Mhz processor that's in every other android phone available to date
