Rogers Samsung Galaxy Spica Now Available, Shipping with Android 1.5

Rogers Samsung Galaxy Spica

Well, it’s all official. The Rogers Samsung Galaxy ‘Spica’ is now available, with pricing starting at $79.99 on a 3-year contract.

If you had your eye on the Spica and were hoping for Android 2.0 to ship with it… I unfortunately have to burst your bubble this morning. The device will indeed ship with Android, but it comes with a stock Android 1.5 experience. I checked-in with a Rogers contact not-so-long ago, and was told:

‘It’ll launch with 1.5 but will be upgradeable to 2.1’

So there you have it. Android 2.0 goodness SHOULD be on the way for the Spica, but don’t hold your breath. Full pricing details on the Rogers Samsung Galaxy Spica are as follows:

  • 3-year contract: $79.99
  • 2-year: $349.99
  • 1-year or monthly: $399.99

The Rogers Samsung Galaxy Spica features Android 1.5 (blarg), 3.2MP camera with video, 800MHz processor, WiFi, 3.5mm headset jack, A-GPS, 3.2″ touchscreen display (320×480), microSD expansion to 32GB and more. In the box you’ll also find your battery (with up to 7 hours talk time), travel charger, stereo headset, data cable and 2GB microSD card.
