well what i meant was the shop keeper was out of his mind and he just wanted me to buy the x10 - mini instead of this phone, but still samsungs galaxy spica stocks are not found anywhere in kerala its like global scarcity, not only samsung galaxy spica but other samsung touch screens as well , but one of the shop keeper told me tthat samsung is not providing with new stocks and the existing stocks were retaken in to the company for some reason........... some shopkeepers say that they are releasing the newer android 2.1 in new stocks
samsung will never replace spica with galaxy s.
as galaxy s in india if released would be priced at 30,000/- and spica is at 13,000/- ...
so there is no reason to replace
To fellow filipinos who update/upgrade their spica (from 2.1) to samsung service center greenhills:
How long did it take them to update the spica (to 2.1)?? Can they do it at the same day??
I'm just curoius because the technician from samsung service center in SM megamall said that it will take them for about 3-5 days...
i contacted a shop for this mobile guess what the reply was ....... "samsung galaxy spica is no more in the market and the samsung is replacing it with samsung galaxy s" ........ this was a really unexpected !!!!!!!!
and there is more he was trying to convince me with sony ericsson x10 mini said that it came with android 2.1
huh ...... i dont even know if x10 mini is ever getting 2.1 update
darklift, 13 Jun 2010Can anyone tell me where it's available in chennai. I'm not able to get this phone anywhere he... moreyou right the phone is too good i also searched high and low for it and luckily found it had it for over month one the best buys i ever made shopkeeper dont know crap they just want to sell corby pros haa corbys are joke compared to this same goes for samsung only intrested in selling corbys
Can anyone tell me where it's available in chennai. I'm not able to get this phone anywhere here. Most shop keepers force you to buy other inferior mobiles like corby or Monte.
Here's what they said.
Univercell : "Samsung have stopped the production of this model. Buy the Monte, it's way better"
Mobile Store : "Sorry, this phone isn't being stocked with us currently. May come in the future."
Poorvika : "Sorry sir, but we don't stock this phone"
Balecha Cell Zone(Spencer) : "This phone will be available in 2 weeks."
Samsung Laptop Zone(Spencer) : Same as above
I mean seriously, it's the first time a good phone is available at a cheap price, why can't samsung distribute it properly.
I sent a mail to samsung(India) a week ago and they're yet to reply
Another thing I hate is the way these shop keepers suggest that a phone is a failure when they do not have a stock of that particular phone. Yeah, like Corby or Monte or Jet could even touch a good phone like this.
it reached kerala alright they were having the stocks till may but after that till today they donot have the stocks most of the dealers said that the samsung company itself doesnt the stock the last time i checked at banglore they said the same thing
I guess this phone never reached Kerala/Kochi cause most of the dealers don't have the MRP itself.
Anyway I was thinking of buying from ebay.in or infibeam.
Same case with Samsung B7330 phone also.
