New Android phone at Rogers: The Samsung Galaxy Spica

March 9th, 2010

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.

    [...] After some speculation last week that the Samsung Galaxy Spica would come to Rogers in Canada, it has come to fruition and can now be purchased for $79.99 on a 3-year contract or $449.99 without contract. The Galaxy Spica is a nice alternative to the HTC Magic and comes comes two months after the 911 GPS problem that Rogers had with both the Dream and Magic. Features of the Galaxy Spica include a 800MHz processor, 3.2″ 320×480 resolution touchscreen display, 3.2MP camera, microSDHC card slot capable of 32GB, and has a 3.5mm headset jack. The device still comes with Android 1.5, but is expected to be upgraded to Android 2.1 in Q2 this year. source: Rogers via EngadgetMobile & HowardChui [...]

    As far as I knew Samsung announced that 2.1 will be coming to the Galaxy Spica, starting with deployment in Germany. I assume it’ll eventually make its way to Canada like everything else.
