    Samsung Promised 2.x and instead deliver 1.6 claiming that the Behold II cannot support 2.x

    Such a Shame. Hardware wise, this phone is the best of the 1st Gen phones. It could have been the premier 1st Gen Android phone if Samsung would have properly supported it with fixes and timely updates.

    Instead, due to lackluster sales (through the fault of Samsung not supporting this phone), Samsung decided to cut their losses on this phone.

    Worse yet, the driver architecture and sources of this phone are CLOSED and PROPRIETARY. Unless Samsung releases that info, there is NO CHANCE of the community ever updating this phone.
