Samsung Behold and More

T-Mobile today outlined its holiday phone lineup and in the process revealed three completely new devices. The Samsung Behold (pictured) is the company's American adaptation of the Europe-centric Tocco and gives the carrier its second 3G-capable touchscreen device after the G1 as well as its second phone with a Kodak-influenced, five-megapixel camera following the already-announced ZN5. Most other details aren't mentioned, though the device is known to use Samsung's TouchWiz widget interface and to use microSDHC for storage.

T-Mobile officially plans to ship the Behold on November 10th, but hasn't mentioned prices. Rumors point to a $150 price on a two-year contract.

The company has also seen fit to introduce one of its few non-phone and non-PC cellular devices in the form of a digital photo frame. Called the T-Mobile cameo, the portrait-style device can use a dedicated cellular connection to load photos both from e-mail as well as MMS messages sent to its number. Few other specifications are available other than its leather-like border. The cameo also has vague release details and is due sometime in "coming weeks."

A last phone, the Samsung Gravity, gives T-Mobile an alternative to the Samsung Rant, LG Rumor and other messaging phone with slide-out QWERTY keyboards. Little else is mentioned, though 3G and a high-end feature set aren't anticipated. T-Mobile ships the Gravity on November 17th.
