Samsung Behold II gets Android software, T-Mobile release in USA

Behold!….II. T-Mobile USA has announced that it will be the carrier to release the Samsung Behold II, an Android-powered phone set to join the ranks of interface-changing flavors of Google’s mobile OS. The Behold II will feature the next generation of Samsung’s TouchWiz interface that features easy to set-up widgets, creating different workspaces, and a “cube menu” that creates shortcuts to multimedia features like music, photos, videos, youTube, Amazon MP3, and the web.

“We’re excited to announce Samsung’s first Android-powered device with T-Mobile in the U.S.,” said Omar Khan, senior vice president of strategy and product management for Samsung Mobile. “The Behold II follows the success of the Behold that launched last year taking the device and user experience to the next level with the Android platform.”

T-Mobile says that it will release the Behold before the start of the holiday season, meaning the phone could hit stores no later than two months from now. And what will you get when you venture into the store for the Behold II?
