Samsung's Galaxy i5700 Spica mobile phone was launched onto the mobile market in November 2009. At that time, the phone was released with version 1.5 of the Android operating system. Now, we have received reports that the phone will be fitted with a more advanced version of Android in the second quarter of this year. It is thought that users of the Spica handset will be able to upgrade to version 2.1 of Android via the Samsung Kies software suite that will be available via the Samsung Apps store, according to the Phone Arena website.
So does that mean that users of the Samsung Galaxy i7500 phone will also be able to upgrade their Android OS to version 2.1? Well, there's been no word of such a move yet. That said, the next Galaxy handset to be released, the Galaxy2, should already have Android 2.1 built in.
