New Samsung Behold and a $49 Sidekick for T-Mobile


Waiting for that all-touchscreen Samsung T919 (we wrote about it here) to finally see some daylight? How bout a Sidekick for below $100? Then today T-Mobile has decided to reward you. Wanna know all the details? Hit the more link and read on!

We’ll break this down by each phone, starting with the hotly anticipated Samsung touchscreen phone- now called the Samsung Behold.

Samsung Behold

This phone is absolutely loaded! Here the whole list of features:

  • All touchscreen (ala iPhone)
  • Thin Design– Think of this as thin as the iPhone or Samsung Instinct. Or if you can’t visualize that, then know it is thin enough to fit in pretty much any pocket.
  • 5 Megapixel Camera– Like the Motorola Zine which came out for T-Mobile last week (see here), this phone is loaded with a 5 megapixel camera, albeit this one isn’t made by Kodak like the ZN5’s.
  • T-Mobile 3G– It’s about time! Finally, T-Mobile is allowing another worthy phone onto it’s 3G network — and by worthy I mean another phone that can really use the 3G speeds for web browsing (the other phone is the G1).
  • Full Web Browser– For really using that T-Mobile 3G.
  • Mp3 and Video Player
  • T-Mobile MyFaves support
  • Available in Brown/Espresso and Pink

Basically, if you were looking for an all touchscreen phone to come to T-Mobile that is loaded with all the bells and whistles, this is the phone for you.

The Behold is avalible today– in Esspresso/brown or Pink- for a not too bad $149.99 with a 2 year contract from

Next up is not a new phone per say, but is rather a great deal on a recently released phone: the Sidekick iD. The Sidekick iD is the customizable Sidekick which has all the Sidekick features we all know and love, along with the ability to make your own designs for the casing of the phone.

So what’s new that we mention it here? Well,  you can have this phone for $49.99 with a 2 year contract. Thats right- a Sidekick for only $49! From what T-Mobile’s site says this is only for ONLINE orders right now, but you never know 🙂 For all the details on the Sidekick iD, see our previous post here.
