T-Mobile officially announces the release date of the Samsung Behold II
With November 18 only inching closer, T-Mobile has finally come out of the closet to officially announce the Samsung Behold II. We were fortunate to get a first hand look at the Android powered handset a few days ago, but pricing was still a mystery except for an unclear estimated price tag of $200. Now it seems confirmed that it'll drop in at $229 after mail-in-rebates when it's released on November 18. Samsung is about to unveil their first Android handset for T-Mobile with their slick looking 3D cube interface. In addition to the graphical eye candy, the Behold II is treated to an always gorgeous 3.2” AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, and comes pack with a 2GB microSD card. Samsung's own TouchWiz interface is discretely implemented on top of the traditional Android platform as well. You can check out our initial impressions on our hands-on preview of the handset, but expect our review to come out soon. Although it's priced higher than even the powerful Motorola DROID, we'll see if it has what it takes to stand toe to toe with the big players in the Android arena.

$230? How do you expect to draw customers currently not under a contract away from Verizon and Droid? Verizon's network is better than T-Mobile's network. Droid has a lower price tag, larger screen, more powerful processor, Android 2.0, and Google Navigation. What the heck are you bozos in Bellevue smoking? I need to drive on over there and get me some...

No, its 70 bucks, not 50. Still cheaper than Verizon, but not cheaper than Sprint.

Between this and the neverending delay of the CDMA Omnia II, Samsung USA's mobile division is gonna get hammered this quarter. Ugh.

and NOONE BUYS Tmo on the old contract plans anymore. 99% of all new customers and 70% of all upgrading customers switch to the new no contract EMP plans. Why dont you report it the way it should be which is probably 399 no contract, which with tmo's 20 month payment option on the phone is $20.00 a month. so again you get a nice phone with unlimited everything for 99 a month (79.99 service + 20/month for the phone till u pay it off) you cant beat that with a stick. or u could pay 200 for the droid then 165 a month for the same unlimited everything (voice + txt + data + tether ) still sound like a bad deal? other than you GETTING THE PRICING WRONG AGAIN, ive played with this phone multiple times and i can tell you, its a piece o junk. lol. Get a mytouch or a cliQ instead.
