eagle06, 04 Jul 2010aww sad :(. I will wait for it. I will let know when i find it .i have found few sites which have stock of spica but they are costly ranging from 14k to 20k, but still in dilema whether to buy from them r not
I m going to buy this superb handset.

I read through most of the comments in the recent past ,but to have a final confirmation,
1.Is there freely available word/excel/Poerpoint viewer software is available?
2.Is a landscape virtual QWERTY keybaord exists with auto rotate option for messaging?
3.If you see i5800 sepcficiation,it says it has got Document Vieer,Facebook App etc.So my question is these softwares are exactly same as what we download and use it from market or something special?
Sorry for my ingnorance and than in advance,
raditya, 30 Jun 2010You should upgrade the OS to v.2.1 (Eclair)hey raditya, could you kindly help me on how to upgrade my spica to v2.1 eclair? tnx in advance!
top class fone,i change fones four times a year
,only really liked nokias,sonys,htc,but this samsung
changed my mind, symbian is boring now,,,no flash but
in nite scene is good so is okay without flash,,large battery one of
the best for android system,to save power just add power control widget
to home screen to switch on/off wifi gps bluetooth brightness sync,,
,then download APN widget provided by pedro maicas from market and put on home screen
to switch on/off mobile internet 3g edge hsdpa,then you have all the battery
hungry services in one area and keep them off when not using them and
battery lasts a couple o days,also go to settings then applications running services
and stop apps you dont want running in background you can start them manually anytime
there is loads of shortcuts and sub menus in this fone either using buttons or touching and
holding finger on screen till sub menu appears,for bigger and better
keyboard download bigbuttons keyboard provided by chicago logo inc works on memo notes texting,
you can lock and unlock fone from button on top right of fone press to wake fone press again and hold
to unlock or slide the button on screen to the right.press volume rocker on left side o fone to
silence incoming call,good screen size.very fast fone,good processor....
guys in india forget about i5700 spica and if you willing to pay 4k extra go for s8500 wave it costs you around 17k.
and it's really good one

For greedy reasons vodafone has blocked off normal gprs/ vodafone live access for Spica, it would be wise that u switch ur mobile operator like I did, spica without internet access is an incomplete phone.
I'm using aircel now.. Rs 98/month and unlimited internet usage! Hope it helped : )
