Samsung t919 T-Mo Tips
Samsung's t919 for T-Mobile now has a firmer name and launch details, a scoop at TmoNews would suggest. Now called the Behold, the conversion of the Europe-focused Tocco is reportedly shipping on November 10th and would carry a contract price of $149 despite a number of high-end features that include a five-megapixel camera, microSDHC storage and 3G access over T-Mobile's native 1,700MHz band.
Shots of the touchscreen interface also show MyFaves built into the phone's front-end menu as well as gallery-style photo browsing and what appears to be a motion-sensitive app. The TouchWiz interface from several of Samsung's more recent touchscreen devices is also present and includes top-level widgets for quick information.
The handset would be T-Mobile's second touchscreen phone in as many months following the release of the Android-based G1 later this month; the company has been one of the last to offer this hardware itself.
