Wireless carrier Cincinnati Bell has just made available on its airwaves a new Android-based mobile phone, the Samsung Behold II. The new device can be found both on the carrier's website and at its retail locations, featuring a price tag of $129.99 upon the signing of a two-year contract agreement. The Behold II is reportedly only one of the Android-based devices the carrier plans on addition to its airwaves, and should be followed by a highly appealing handset, the Motorola Milestone XT720.
When it comes to the specs list of the new Samsung Behold II, we can count a 3.2-inch touchscreen display that boast a 320 x 480 pixels resolution, a 5-megapixel photo snapper, 200MB of internal memory complemented by a memory card slot with support for up to 16GB of additional storage space, speakerphone, support for 3G connectivity, Bluetooth capabilities, and more. The device
is powered by a battery that can offer up to 6 hours of talk time or up to 16 days of standby time.
“The Behold II is the latest Android phone
with corporate email synchronization, WiFi, and visual voicemail. And its Webkit-based browser is fully integrated with Google applications so you can check Gmail, automatically add an event to your calendar, and find directions with Google Maps,” is how the handset is described on the wireless carrier's website
. The phone measures 4.57 x 2.2 x 0.48 inches and weighs in at 4.20 ounces.
As for the Motorola Milestone XT720, rumor has it that it shouldn't be too long before the carrier makes it available on its airwaves. It seems that the appealing Android-based handset
has already emerged on Cincinnati Bell's support website, even if no official announcement was made until now. Since the device has got its own support page on the carrier's website, chances are that it would soon be formally introduced, but no info on when that would happen emerged for the time being.
