T-Mobile USA is expected to release the Samsung Behold II around the middle of next month. The price for this Android-powered hasn’t been announced yet, but an unconfirmed report has revealed what it will be.
According to information leaking out of this carrier, the Behold II will sell for $250 with a two-year service contract. If this is correct, this Samsung model will be T-Mobile’s most expensive Android-based device. All its previous phones running Google’s OS have debuted under $200.
The Behold II will supposedly hit store shelves on November 18.
An Overview of the Samsung Behold II
T-Mobile’s latest Android-based smartphone will have a tablet shape, and include a 3.2-inch touchscreen. As mentioned earlier, this will be an AM-OLED display, a type that uses less power and offers better colors at wider viewing angles.
It’s not known what version of Android this smartphone will use. It could be Android 1.6, or this could be Samsung’s first with the new Android 2.0.
The Behold II will use Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz user interface in place of the standard one. This provides one-touch access to commonly-used features and applications, plus widgets located in a slide out tray.
As an Android-powered smartphone, this device will give users access to Google’s mobile services, including Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Talk as well as thousands of applications and games available for download from the Android Market.
This Samsung model is going to support personal email and corporate e-mail with Exchange ActiveSync, as well as instant messaging, and text, picture, and video messaging.
It will give users access to T-Mobile’s 3G network, as well as Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1. It will also include a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, flash, five shooting modes and video capabilities.
