Review: Samsung Behold
The Behold is an interesting device. It fills a gap in T-Mobile's line-up of phones in that it provides what should be a winning combination of a touch-screen with a 5 megapixel camera and the TouchWiz user interface.
TouchWiz is a decent user interface, and that fact that it is so easily customized makes it more user friendly than a lot of other phone OSes out there.
The 5 megapixel camera is decent, but not great. Where the quality of the images falls a little short, however, the camera software gives you plenty of ways to manipulate the picture-taking process.

The touch screen itself works well, and the fact that you can turn the haptics off completely, makes it much more usable in my mind.
If you're in the market for a touch device that has a better-than-average feature set, the Behold is worth considering.
There's a new touch panel technology in town, and it's coming to next year's phones with flexible displays. Sensel makes touch panels that have the precision and multi-touch capability of today's capacitive touch technology, but are better suited to the flexible displays coming to phones this year and next.
