Those of you who always wanted a Samsung Behold II, but had Cincinnati Bell as your carrier of choice should be very happy.
Because today, Cincinnati Bell has started selling the Behold II, and there’s some surprising news about it. Namely, the Beholds that Cincinnati Bell stocks have absolutely no overlaid UI whatsoever, what you get is just plain Android.
So, TouchWiz haters that always wanted a Behold II and wanted it on Cincinnati Bell, you should be even happier.
Why you would be happy to buy a phone running Android 1.5 in 2010 is another story.
Anyway, if you’re interested, it will cost you $130 with a new 2-year contract (after a $100 mail-in rebate). You can also buy it without any agreement, and that will set you back $230 (again, after a $100 mail-in rebate).
What you get for the price is:
- a 3.2″ 320×480 AMOLED capacitive touchscreen
- 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash
- WiFi 802.11 b/g, HSDPA, AGPS and Bluetooth 2.1
- 200 MB internal memory, expandable via microSD card slot
- 1500 mAh battery
- Dimensions: 116.8 x 55.9 x 12.2 mm
- Weight: 119.7 g
It may prove to be a good first touchscreen device for someone who doesn’t have a clue what Android is. They might even enjoy it.
For everyone else, the fact that it’s running a near-obsolete OS version should be reason enough to stay away from it.
If you must, you can order it online here or go to your nearest Cincinnati Bell store.
