Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 mobile phone will be able to upgrade their included Android operating system, according to Samsung. The phone will be able to upgrade to Android version 2.1 from this month in selected territories.
The new software will be accessible via Samsung’s own PC Studio 7 which is already featured within the Galaxy Spica handset. Android 2.1 should also be available for Spica owners from the Samsung website, according to the Korean Newswire website.
German users will be the first to be able to access the update this month but other European territories will be able to follow soon after, including the UK which will rename the handset as the Samsung Galaxy Portal for an April release.
The Galaxy Spica includes a 3.2in HVGA touchscreen display, HSDPA, A-GPS, Wi-Fi for the wireless connection to the Internet, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The phone also runs on a 800MHz CPU.
