Samsung Behold II to head to Verizon? Samsung giving away a Behold II every hour
Sometimes, you don't need a piano to fall on your head to have a "Aha!" moment. Thanks to a clue left by Samsung itself, we can say with a fairly decent amount of certainty that the Behold II is heading over to Verizon. First, some background. After the original Behold failed to make waves as one of the first feature phones with a 5MP camera (it did spawn a decent 30 second commercial featuring The Blue Van's "Silly Boy"), the Korean manufacturer re-designed the phone as a smart one with Android and was the first Android TouchWiz device with the 3D Cube Navigation. The handset is currently offered at T-Mobile but Samsung has left a major clue that Verizon will soon snag a CDMA version of the phone. On the product page on Samsung's own web site is a picture of the 4 sides of the 3D cube and one of the sides shows the Verizon VCast logo! If you are a Big Red customer and have been wanting the Behold II, it looks like you won't have to make the jump from the nation's largest carrier to the fourth largest.

Heck, you might not even have to pay for the handset! Samsung is having a "Be a Winner" contest where a web site counts down the time until the next Behold II is given away. The carrier is giving one away every 60 minutes and winning is as easy as clicking this link and registering for the contest. If you win one, let us know.

I won one as well, I signed up and that same hour I won. It doesnt matter if the phone is just "eh" because if you dont have t mobile then the phone is going straight to ebay for some free cash. Plus if you win the tv then you really clean up.

It would be a slightly cannibalistic move on Samsung's part seeing as aside from the WinMo vs Android aspect, the Omnia II is a superior phone offering to the Behold II. Perhaps Samsung will upgrade the screensize??? doubt it tho.

I won one of them, look at November 28th at 10pm! Oh and By the way it's not t-mobile thats doing the contest. If you look at the FAQ's it states that you dont need to have t-mobile. Which would imply that the phone comes unlocked, but im not sure on that one. It does say that they phones would arrive "within" 14 days of winning. So hopefully i get mine soon! I personally would never have bought this phone, but winning one for free is enough for me to at least try it!
