Samsung confirms Android 2.1 update for Galaxy Portal
Free update inbound
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. ®
Big thumbs up
What exactly is a contanst?
And how would I manage one?
"available through PC Studio 7"
God I hope that's a new version of PC Studio (I haven't got my original s/w to hand). The existing version of PC Studio doesn't work at all for me (Win 7 32 bit). I get an error during installation, and it won't recognise the phone when I plug it in.
Glad to here that the upgrade is due, though. It will be very welcome.
