The debacle that is the update schedule (or, lack of a schedule, really) for the Samsung Behold II is something that we covered just a few weeks for you. And, while we do admit that it’s not very good news for Behold II owners out there that were expecting to get Android 2.x, we do have to say that at least they’re getting an upgrade at all. After all, considering the Samsung Moment probably did world’s better sales wise for Sprint than the Behold II did for T-Mobile, it wouldn’t have surprised us if they just looked over the Behold II completely.
But, enough of that. Rumor has it that coming up here pretty soon, like June 28th soon, the Behold II is going to get an update to its system. Sure, it’s possible that this is just an update from Samsung/T-Mobile to fix some minor bugs, or to fix the radio, or whatever else they can come up with to update, but we’ll go ahead and agree with our friends over at AndroidGuys and consider the possibility that this is the day Samsung will push out the 1.6 update.
The update brings with it the use of Google Navigation, necessary updates to Google Maps, as well as the ability to use Google applications like Google Goggles. You’ll also get the Quick Search Box, as well as access to Google Voice Search. An updated media player will also be rolled into the package, along with the legendary Swype keyboard. We’ll keep our ear to the ground on this one, and if we hear anything different, we’ll be sure to let you know. As it stands right now, it looks like you’ll have a nice upgrade present waiting for you at the end of June. Anyone out there excited about this?[via AndroidGuys]
