T-Mobile has landed yet another Google Android handset, making the carrier’s wide assortment of Android devices in the U.S. even wider. The Samsung Behold II hits before the holidays, and like the G1, myTouch and Cliq before it, will support T-Mobile’s 3G network. Much like the Sense interface of Sprint’s HTC Hero (see our video here), the Behold II has a custom interface floating above Android. Samsung’s TouchWiz UI should be familiar to prior Samsung smartphone owners by now, and that’s what you’ll see on the Behold II.

This might be the first T-Mobile handset with an AMOLED display — if it isn’t, it has to be among the first. The 3.2-inch display will show off the three (just three?) homescreens and the TouchWiz cube with shortcuts to six multimedia features: music, photos, videos, the web, YouTube and the Amazon MP3 store. Samsung tucked in a 5-megapixel camera, support for up to 16GB of external storage, assisted GPS and Bluetooth 2.1. No official pricing has been released yet.

  1. I could do without the 3-d cube. A plainer version of android would be welcome on this.

  2. I am really looking forward to getting my Samsung Behold II in February. I am waiting for current 2 year stint to end to get a cheaper price. So far, this looks amazing. I have seen reviews with stock Behold II and look forward to chance to update to Android 2.0 if needed at all. Since it is a new phone, I would expect some hiccups to show, so hopefully I get a batch that has been revised at least once when I get mine. Looking forward to the unlimited possibilities it seems. Been using flip phones since 2006, have been wanting to add functionality for a long time. Does POP exist on these phones when used with WiFi? Also, have seen that 3G can’t be turned off, has anyone came with a way to fix this and make it more selective? For example, when at work, signal strengths aren’t that great, would rather use WiFi capabilities for any browsing or web related activity. Currently get with the Beat about 2 to 0 bars inside work, when I move around I do get better strengths.
