Anonymous, 08 May 2010any idea why the 2.1 indian firmwire is slower than the uk one is so would it be better to upd... moreThe Indian firmware is of march and UK firmware is of April and I think they might have polished it to improve some more performance. If you see both at the same time u will not notice any performance difference both are smooth with no lag but my perspective was the UK firmware was slightly faster and the video/camera quality of the UK firmware was better. Other than that every thing is same.
In the Indian firmware the progressbar of the video player was not working correctly for some videos but for the UK firmware it was absolutely fine.

Spica comes with brand 2.1 rather than 1.5, that might be the reason why there is no mobiles in Chennai. I guess the shop guys are not aware of this. Anyhow lets see for a week or two so that we might get this.
