Taking the Samsung Behold for a spin

If you haven't noticed, touch-screen phones are in, and it seems as if every carrier and manufacturer are rushing to jump on the bandwagon. The latest entry is the new Samsung Behold comes to T-Mobile.

Also called the SGH-T919, the Behold resembles both the Samsung Omnia and the LG Dare with a little bit of the Samsung Instinct thrown in. It has an expansive touch-screen design while offering a music player, a 5-megapixel camera, and (most notably) support for T-Mobile's growing 3G network. The result is an attractive, powerful phone with an easy-to-use TouchWiz interface. On the downside, it lacks Wi-Fi and the Web browser is a bit erratic, but the Behold is a compelling addition to T-Mobile lineup.
