Hands on with the LG Shine Touch

Here’s the LG Shine Touch. It’s a touch screen device with a 3″ 400×240 display, 3 megapixel camera and WiFi. The back has a metalic finish which reminds me of the original LG Shine.

It’s available on Rogers now.

New Android phone at Rogers: The Samsung Galaxy Spica

The Samsung Galaxy Spica (it’s pronounced speak-ah (I hope Samsung  doesn’t try to sell this one in Mexico)).

It’s similar to the Samsung Galaxy I reviewed a while back but it adds a 800Mhz Samsung processor (up from a 528Mhz Qualcomm) plus if I remember correctly the Spica will get a Android 2.1 upgrade eventually. The Spica lacks the original Galaxy’s 5 megapixel camera and has 2GB instead of 8GB of built in memory.

It’s 79.99 on a 3 year voice and data plan.
