The Behold comes loaded with the NetFront browser from Access and support for T-Mobile's 3G network. This should be a winning combination.

In areas with 3G coverage, the Behold loaded Web sites at blazing fast speeds. Sites such as CNN, NYTimes.com and Phone Scoop all appeared in under 4 seconds. The browser is fairly robust and offers you the navigation options you expect to see. Having the ability to touch the screen rather than scroll around with a D-pad really makes browsing much more enjoyable, though you need to really train yourself to use the screen accurately.

Setting up favorites is a snap, and the browser has built a search bar directly into the bookmarks page. What's really nice is you can even choose to change which search engine you use on the fly via a pull-down menu.



The TouchWiz user interface lets you customize the Behold quite a bit. The dock can be completely customized. Users can drag and drop whatever applications or widgets they like to the desktop on the phone. Setting ringtones, caller IDs, wallpapers and stuff like that is a complete breeze. The profiles and sounds can be set in myriad combinations, the haptics feedback is user adjustable, and so is the camera application.
