Rogers Launching the Samsung Galaxy (I5700) Spica For $79.99 Soon

Labels: , , , , , ,

Apparently, Rogers could be launching the Samsung Galaxy two to three weeks from now. I don't really know why Rogers is thinking about launching this phone since it's just about 9 months old at this point. Anyways, this handset is rocking a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, a 5MP AF camera with an LED flash, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and it's a bit behind since it's still stuck with Android 1.5. Bell Mobility already has this handset available and it's only going for $49.95 right now, so I'm assuming that if Rogers launches this handset it'll be at around the same price - or $99 since that's what Bell had it for at launch.

Update: It's official. Rogers will really be launching the Galaxy, but it's actually the I5700 Galaxy Spica and not the I7500 Galaxy that's available on Bell. At least there's some variety here. Unfortunately, this model is worse than the I7500 since the camera's downgraded to just 3.2MP. Cross your fingers though because it could launch with Android 2.0, if you don't pray enough you'll be stuck with version 1.5. [Mobile Syrup]

Update: According to another Mobile Syrup post, Rogers will be launching this handset for $79.99 on a 2-year contract and $449.99 contract-free.
