Rahul, 08 Oct 2010Its written in gsm arena and other review that this phone is upgradable to 2.2. And u say its... moreFirstly I would like to let you know that .. suppose you get default OS - Windows XP when you buy a laptop, surely the price would be less and he would not give you OS - Windows 7 with it (that would surely cost you more)...
Even in Laptops based on the processor we can update OS to either Windows XP or Windows 7
So even if the froyo update is available that would cost you more bucks ...
Also i have posted the thing --- which i received upon mailing the samsung technical team. The store authority is no one to gurantee it... If 'yes' he's giving assurance (then its upto you to believe) ...
Or else samsung shall not have released a new spec of I551 which comes with Froyo ...
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010how can i upgrade this phone to the 2.2 android software you can upgrade to froyo by two steps...
1. wait for official update by samsung, as harsha has confirmed that it will be available at end of this year.
2. try rooting(google it) and update it unofficially, AND VOID YOUR WARRANTY. and also it is not a perfect solution as some people get froyo 2.2 by rooting and some people end up with a dead phone in there hand.
now its up to you to make your pick...

Napster, 07 Oct 2010Has anybody got the white( the one on Flipkart) version of this phone? Please let me know?I have got the white version of this phone.
Great one. Low price and full option. DivX support is supreb. Screen is only make problem in sunlight, else were is superb. Mp3 5.1 and super bass with head phone, great work. Will get lot off app in market and you can do almost anything in it. All google app are well sticked with. Battery life is mid range but not bad.
Go Buy It. Rs. 12200 in India. (To keep your battery going long there is an Auto kill app Applications are avilable, with it i am getting 3 days with avg Wifi +Video+mp3+call+sms+Games) Multi processing is OK but kills battery.
please ensure to take care before you plan to buy this phone. This is the mail i have received from the Samsung upon querying whether the phone is upgradeable to froyo. Answer - The piece is not compatible with froyo.
Thank you for taking interest in Samsung products and services.
GT-I5800/I5801 handset is not compatible with froyo version. This handset is available with Android 2.1 version only.
Major drawbacks with Android v2.1
1. The Web Browsers in Android 2.1 doesn't support the flashplayer.
2. Also the Android 2.1 doesn't allow the applications to be installed in Memory Card so the limitation that we have to install the applications on Phone Memory. (which is just 130mb) and most of the available android applications couldn't be used
