Samsung Behold II will Only be Upgraded to Android 1.6
May 29, 2010 7:00 AM –
OK news and just plain sad news for Samsung Behold II owners who are running elder Android version 1.5 currently will only be able to receive the update to Android 1.6 (Donut) and no other future update. We’ve noticed Samsung drag their heels on updates and most phones are upgrading to Android 2.1 (Eclair) as we are on the cusp of Android 2.2 (Froyo) release. The update does offer some improvements like Swype keyboard, an improved Media Player, updated core Android applications, and improved Bluetooth capabilities but this isn’t enough.
Behold 2 owners were told their phone would be able to get Android 2.x updates as they became available. Now Samsung has gone back on its word even removed the promo vid that stated this. If you’re a Behold 2 owner and peeved about this join the online petition others started to voice your concerns plus possibly take legal action.
Do you have a Samsung Behold II and feel left in the dark? Demanding an update? Demanding a refund? Demanding a phone replacement? Don’t care? What are your thoughts… place them in the comments below!
