Samsung Will Update Behold II to Android 1.6

Samsung today issued a statement regarding the contentious Samsung Behold II update issue. While company reps had been caught on video saying the Behold II would get an over-the-air update to Android 2.0, Behold II owners have been up in arms recently over a rumor that the Behold II would remain stuck on Android 1.5. Kim Titus, Director of Public Relations for Samsung Telecommunications America, reached out to PhoneScoop with an official statement, and it seems Samsung will meet owners half way and update the Behold II to Android 1.6. That means the Behold II will get the free navigation feature in Google Maps, as well as Google Voice Search. In addition to the stock Android 1.6 features, the Behold II will also get the Swype keyboard, an improved media player and improved Bluetooth capabilities. Core Android applications should also see an update. Samsung says the Behold II is not upgradeable beyond Android 1.6.

For those Behold II users upset...

Your a moron for buying a Behold II in the first place! That's the biggest piece of Android crap T-Mobile sells.

You only have yourself to blame.

We need 2.2

What is Samsung thinking???
2.2 Froyo is about to be released, what the HELL Samsung still releases 1.6?????
It's better to stay away from Samsung smartphones.
If the g1 can run eclair just fine with all its bells and whistles (rooted of course), then there no excuse why a phone with higher specs cant and wont. So it seems to be really all about making you buy another phone and staying in contract. This may ...
