Samsung's Galaxy Spica smartphone is being upgraded to the latest Google Android operating system which includes new API changes and bug fixes.

The Android 2.1 platform, made available earlier this year, was a key feature for the Google Nexus One smartphone. The minrelease is now being deployed by manufacturers such as HTC, Motorola and Samsung to its Android-powered handset owners.

Samsung has just announced that the upgrade is available for their Galaxy Spica (i5700) smartphone through Samsung's PC Suite 7, replacing the original Android 1.5 OS edition.
