Samsung Behold 2 Passes FCC


Not much was known about the Behold 2. Well, Samsung has surprised us all! The Behold 2 has passed the FCC! That’s the good news. The bad news is it has a 1000 mAh battery. As you may recall the T-Mobile G1 had a 1150 mAh battery. If you thought the G1 battery life was poor, think again. So for those planning on purchasing this device: you will need to carry a charger around a lot more.

Known specs of the Behold 2:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/1900
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • a-GPS
  • Touchscreen with 400 x 240 pixel resolution
  • 5 MegaPixel Camera

And did I mention its headed to Magenta? Feel free to express your opinions in the comments!

    Great news…is there any news about the regular version of the galaxy this year. I need a new phone and would love to have the AMOLED screen.

  • Jon

    If the Lite’s coming here first, I doubt we’ll get the Galaxy. I’ve already turned my sights to the N900.

  • James

    Maybe this will be “our” version of the Galaxy..but that battery sucks..i mean come on doesnt the Galaxy have a 1500mAh battery? I guess some company is not really paying attention.

  • WazzuKirk

    The G1 battery is awful, so this one must be reallllllllly baaaaaaaad.

    I’ll pass.

  • David

    A 1000 MAH battery?? What are these people thinking? I’ll pass. I am getting the Moto Cliq.

  • SEFan

    Accckkk!!! Where the hell is the REAL Galaxy?!@

  • sleebus.jones

    I wish manufacturers would stop chasing thin phones and actually make a phone that I can use throughout the day and not have it die. Like I’ve said before — the G1 is a great phone, if you don’t use it. Unless this thing is amazingly efficient, it looks like another phone in the stream of MANY with way less than useful battery life.

  • GlockBuster

    I’m getting sick of these small screen, half-assed data phones. The screen size on this phone is 3.0″ and the CLIQ is 3.1″. The G1 and myTouch are both 3.2″… why the hell are they going backwards? In my opinion, if a T-Mobile Android OS phone wants to really compete with the iPhone, they need to at LEAST match their 3.5″ screen (without turning it into a resistive, like the TP2). Maybe this doesn’t matter as much to everyone else, but to me it is crucial.

    This is demonstrating exactly why we needs advancement in battery technology.

  • tmolover

  • Fangirl

  • Dave

    seriously screw the galaxy lite WE WANT the ORIGINAL GALAXY!!! this one sucks!!! 1000 mAh battery? come on samsung!!! i’m a big fan of samsung but this one is just not samsung worthy… seriously… we want the i7500 GALAXY!!! just like those europeans have!!! why can’t we get a phone like them????

  • Carl

    Glad it’s Android, as being previous owner of Behold, the TouchWiz interface was okay, but not great. As for dual band thats bad for anyone who goes international, but I don’t, I might just get this one or Moto Cliq, the battery is what worries me.
