Free update inbound

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Samsung has announced it will upgrade its Android-based Galaxy Portal smartphone - aka the Galaxy Spica - to version 2.1 of the Google operating system.

The handset - model number i5700, reviewed here - will get the Android 2.1 update at some point during the next few months as Samsung begins a worldwide rollout starting this month in Germany.

Samsung said Android 2.1 will bring augmented reality gimmickry to the handset and a new, nine-screen home view. Souped up multimedia organisation and playback also feature.

The contanst manager has been improved, Samsung said, and it'll be easier to attach files and contacts to email messages with 2.1.

The upgrade will be available through PC Studio 7, Samsung’s sync software. ®
