    Woah woah, they took off Touchwiz!

    <cue chorus of angels!>

    I'll have to get in contact with them or a new user and get the ROM dump straight away!

    Looks like a win for everybody, although I wonder what version android it's running.

    That is what I was thinking at first. But I think the hang up is the amoled drivers not the touchwiz drivers. This behold II won't see 2.x either anyway.

    Living in Cincinnati I will now have to see this phone being pumped down my throat by Nick Lachey for the next four months I guess. :(

    Props to Cincinnati Bell! The phone isn't all that bad spec-wise, so it's pretty cool that they're doing it without TouchWiz. We all have our little arguments about these phones, but this is great for the expansion of Android!

    It's Bell....MA BELL.......AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    jk
    it's not important this phone should die a flaming poo of a death and working on it with Me Bell wouldn't of saved it. You made the right choice.

    Ok it kinda is and kinda isn't Ma Bell but still I think everyone knows what AT&T's name was before it was hacked to death by the government (even though it has bought up and merged all it's subsidiarity it produced during the split and is now one mega company again)

    It looks like Samsung's call log, messaging, and calendar apps are still there unless they just reused the icons. Not too bad.

    Question is are those camera and camcorder apps Samsung's or something else?

    I really can't wait to get my hands on a dump of this!

    From all the pix on the Support Tutorial page it look like Twiz as far as the homescreen and settings applets are gone. The camera, messaging, contacts, etc are still there.

    Though with the looser integration even these could probably be removed and replaced with alternatives or stock Android.

    They would have had to remove the dependence of the dialer on Visual Voicemail for instance.

    I would guess Search.

    edit: yep - search
