Samsung SGH-T939 is the Behold 2, might run Android


Samsung really must hate all these regulation groups. First, BluetoothSIG spills the beans on the Armani 2. Just hours later, the Wi-Fi Alliance has slipped out some details of a previously unannounced Samsung SGH-T939. We wouldn’t have much to go off of with just the model number — fortunately for us, they went ahead and included the product name; behold, it’s the Behold 2.

It’s only been around 8 months since the original Behold hit the shelves, so we’d imagine that the followup is still a few months away. But that shouldn’t keep us from being interested in knowing all the details, should it?

Take this User Agent Profile unearthed by CellPhoneSignal, for example. User Agent Profiles tell web servers details about your setup, such as what browser you’re running. What’s that, under “BrowserName”? Yep – “Android Browser”.

One oddity to note, however, is that all Android handsets released thus far identify themselves “Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 0.5; en-us) AppleWebKit/522+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/419.3”, not just “Android Browser”. Of course, this is also the first time we’ve seen something like this from a Samsung-made Android phone — ol’ Sammy might just be mixing things up a bit, or just using a placeholder. We’ll have to wait and see.
