Samsung Galaxy Spica gets official in Russia
We have already heard quite a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Spica, the manufacturer’s second Android handset. It seems the latest rumors have turned out true, as the Galaxy Spica has recently been announced by Samsung Russia. Differences between the new phone and its predecessor aren’t really numerous. In terms of design, the Spica will look just a little bit more youthful, featuring red accents for the black version, and green accents for the white one. The overall shape has been kept the same though.

The Samsung Galaxy Spica will still feature a 3.2-inch touch-sensitive display (probably an AMOLED one), but its processor is to pack quite a punch, being clocked at 800MHz. However, available RAM will be only 128 megabytes. The camera will be 3.2-megapixel, instead of the 5MP unit found on the original. Samsung promises the phone will have some nice built-in video playback support, so that users won’t need to spend time converting their videos. Other features include a GPS, digital compass, microSDHC slot (up to 32GB) and a 1500mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Spica will be available in Russia, starting November, for about EUR 320 (14,000 rubles). We expect that the manufacturer will introduce the handset in other areas soon.

I'm not thrilled by any Samsung phone being released... 800Mhx means it will be a Xscale = no 3D acceleration, hideous battery life and problems with bricked devices due to sucky spl. 128 ram for android= 128-80(used by the linux kernel) = 48 ram available for apps and if they shove a 3d chip inside - 34 mb ram. 320 EUR for that? Come on Sammy - shove your crappy phones up your ...... nose. Oh and I forgot.... Ugly design. I wont be surprised if the screen is resistive...

Actually, I like the look. And I haven't had any problems with any Samsung phone yet, so I'm IN!
