Samsung's Galaxy Spica turns into Galaxy Portal for T-Mobile UK exclusive

Chris Ziegler

A few weeks ago, Britons may not have cared about the rumors that Samsung's cute little Android-powered i5700 Galaxy Spica would be graced with Eclair next month. Then again, a few weeks ago, we didn't know that it'd be coming to the British Isles attached to any carrier in particular, either. Turns out T-Mobile has gone and scored itself a one-month exclusive on the i5700, renaming it the "Galaxy Portal" in the process -- and it'll have the blacked-out version all to itself for a full three months. With a 3.2 megapixel cam, 3.2-inch HVGA display and HSPA, it could make for a decent midrange way to get into the wide world of Android -- especially when (or if) Samsung pushes the 2.0 upgrade -- and it's available now for free to anyone willing to sign away £23 (about $37) a month on an 18-month contract.
