Behold, a new Samsung phone

T-Mobile's Samsung Behold goes on sale, and CNET takes a quick look before publishing the full review.

The Samsung Behold makes its debut. Samsung

As we told you last week, the Samsung Behold (aka the SGH-T919) officially went on sale Monday at T-Mobile. You can get it for $149 in two colors: espresso (brown) or rose (pink).

Just as we're dishing this news, a review model of the Behold landed on our desk. We'll give it a full shakedown tomorrow, but off the bat we can report that the glossy touch-screen phone has a sleek design. It may not have a particularly unique style, but it is attractive and has a nice feel in the hand. What's more, the display is bright and vibrant.

Features include Samsung's TouchWiz interface, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and video capture, a full Web browser, stereo Bluetooth, a speakerphone, organizer features, a microSD-card slot, and GPS. Also, in addition to being a quad-band world phone, the Behold is compatible with T-Mobile's 3G network.

Stay tuned for a full review.
