T-Mobile USA announced the Samsung Behold II early this month, but the debut is still weeks away. According to leaked information, this Android-based smartphone will launch in mid-November..
There can be do doubt the Behold II won’t come out for some time: it was unveiled at the CTIA tradeshow, but all Samsung or T-Mobile had to show off was a non-functional demo unit.
A T-Mobile internal document that has leaked out says the launch date will be Wednesday, November 18.
The price has yet to be announced, and the leaked document did not reveal it.
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.
The Behold II will use Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz user interface. 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.
A Big Android Push
The Behold II is just one of several Android-powered models T-Mobile is bringing out this year.
This carrier is expected to continue offering a wide variety of Android models next year.
