Samsung continued its fall deluge of new phones Thursday when it introduced two cell phones for T-Mobile. The Samsung Gravity is a messaging phone in the style of the recently-announced Samsung Rant, and the Samsung Behold (we don't know where Samsung comes up with these names, either) offers a full touch screen.

Though we thought the Rant was Samsung's answer to the popular LG Rumor, we see now that the Gravity (aka the SGH-T459) more closely resembles the LG phone. Features include a slide-out alphabetical keyboard for rapid messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a speakerphone, organizer features, and a microSD-card slot. It will be available in lime or aqua on November 17.

From what we can tell, the Behold has a sleek design, but we're not sure it's a sight to behold. Like the new Samsung Delve dropped by Alltel one week ago, the Behold (aka the SGH-T919) has a full touch screen with a virtual keyboard. Yet, its few physical keys more resemble those on the Samsung F480 , which was born last February at the GSMA World Congress.

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, the Behold will be compatible with T-Mobile's 3G network. The Behold will go on sale beginning November 10, and will be available in black or light rose.
