Samsung Behold II to Bow at $200 Later This Month
We’re days away from the launch of T-Mobile’s 4th Android-based handset and we’ve learned the retail price.Â After getting rumored at $249 with a 2-year agreement, the final cost of the Samsung Behold II gets listed at $199.99 with a 2-year agreement. Don’t feel like getting tied up with a contract?Â You could always buy it outright for $449.99 and space it out over 20 months with one of T-Mobile’s Even More Plus plans.
Yep – we know what you are thinking.Â “For $200, I would rather go buy a Droid!”Â We’ve got a couple of bullet points to share with you before you make any hasty decisions.
- The Droid is $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate that comes in the form of a debit card.Â The Behold II can be stretched out for $22.50 a month.
- Verizon offers the biggest, baddest data network while T-Mobile has been playing catch up.Â That could/should change before long though.
- T-Mobile offers no-contract plans and some of the lowest monthly rates while Verizon offers, well… neither.
- T-Mobile has offered Android for over a year and has three other handsets to choose from if the Behold II is not your cup of tea.Â Verizon has an entire line of Android phones coming under the DROID umbrella.Â Unfortunately, they only have one other model to pick from – DROID Eris by HTC.
Your turn to sound off.Â Which are you looking forward to getting and why?
