The first week of November has been busy for phone manufacturers and carriers as they gear up, quite literally, for Nov. 16th, the official first day of the holiday shopping season. And T-Mobile, after losing a quite significant number of subscribers on the Q3, is preparing to offer great deals and new smart phones. T-Mobile will push more the selling of the first Android phone by Motorola, the Cliq. The Samsung Behold 2, will not stay behind. It is going to launch on Nov 18th.
The Behold 2 is probably one of the best phones Samsung has manufactured in a while and it’s definitely an important Android phone to consider. But the Behold II lacks the entire buzz and the magic created around the Droid.
The phone should sell for $199.99 with a 2-year contract from T-Mobile but we’ll wait for next Thursday’s special event to confirm everything we mentioned so far.
Another phone coming this holidays is the Research In Motion’s BlackBerry Bold 9700 , $200 with a two-year T-Mobile contract; is the finest BlackBerry to date, combining the best of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 and the BlackBerry Bold 9000 in a slim and refined package. People looking for a major update to the original Bold might be disappointed, but BlackBerry fans will appreciate the handset’s subtle design tweaks and upgrades.
