Samsung Behold II launches on Cincinnati Bell minus Touchwiz and Cube

behold-bell

Cincinnati Bell has launched another Android handset,  the Samsung Behold II. One thing makes this version of the Behold II stand out against the T-Mobile version, Its not running Samsung’s Touchwiz UI or sporting the “Cube” menu. Android 1.6 and 3.2″ display make this slider a good mid-range option for those with the carrier. Regularly priced at $399.99 with no contract and only $129 with a 2yr contract after instant savings and rebates.

What is really interesting is that this device seems to be sporting a modified version of a custom ROM developed by BH_MAN / Eugene373. According to the ROM developer he was contacted by Cincinnati Bell and declined to help them as he was not familiar with the company. He has reached out to Cincinnati Bell after seeing the released device and is awaiting a response.
