  1. only thing that seems lite about it is the ram/rom and the camera. other then that it just seems like a revamped galaxy.

  2. How come this one has an 800Mhz processor, while the Galaxy only has 528Mhz? Doesn’t seem to be lite when looking at that.

  3. 128mb RAM? what kind of joke is this?

  4. Price is to high, in Europe you can by Galaxy for just a little more money. This was supposed to be low priced Android device.
    I’m interested to see this device in wild with price tag, I think there will be price changes after it hits market.

  5. So perhaps this means the Behold II will also get an 800Mhz ARM11

  6. Uping the cpu and keeping 128mb of ram is useless.

  7. I’d take the slower snapdragon and boost up the ram instead of this. I didn’t see what the rom was but come on companies, this should be 1 gig, no less.

  8. The price listed here is insane, a simlock free spica costs 250 euros,here in the Netherlands that is.
