T-Mobile Samsung Behold II Getting Released November 18th ?

The spotlight for Android is certainly busy these days. After the Droid ad onslaught this past weekend, all eyes are on Verizon's Droid. But with the Motorola CLIQ now available, the CLIQ is jumping back into the mix. And that's not even mentioning the best Android phone currently on the market, the Sprint HTC Hero, being released just a week ago. So is there room for any more Android phones?

T-Mobile certainly thinks so. According to this leaked slide, the Samsung Behold II will be released on November 18th. The Samsung Behold II is going to pack a 3.2 inch AMOLED screen, 5-megapixel camera and comes running Samsung's own TouchWiz UI. TouchWiz is supposed to give easy access to frequently accessed applications and of course, offer widgets galore.

We weren't excited about the Behold II before but since the purported November 18th release date is less than a month away, we're a little more optimistic. With the CLIQ being a QWERTY-slider device and the Behold II being a touchscreen only phone, are these two devices the new T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G?

What do you guys think?

  • T-mobile traditionally leaves off features on its phones. Motorola Clique: no camera flash. Behold 2: no keyboard. Blackberry 9700: no touch screen. Why do they do that?
  • Show me a phone with every feature there is and I'll show you a phone that weighs 2 pounds, doesn't fit in your pocket, and has to be recharged every 8 hours.
  • I want a T-mobile version of the Motorola Droid. Or a phone with these features: * 3.7" screen (w/ screen this big I don't care if it comes w/ physical kb) and thin bezel * Better camera than the G1 - add better lense and a Flash. I don't need more megapixels. * 1ghz processor. Yay snapdragon! * battery of at least 1500 mAh and removable * and of course all the other standard goodies like removable SDHC, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth...
  • This is Mickey Mouse BS,... In plain English it's a JOKE
  • That dream phone will come out in 6 months later from Samsung.
    They already have it; they will release one by one. It's all about the marketing to sell more phone. Just wait!
