The Samsung Galaxy Spica (i5700) is the little brother of the Samsung Galaxy (i7500). It features a TFT screen (instead of AMOLED), has a 3MP camera (instead of 5MP), GPS and WiFi integration, and no internal flash memory storage (its bigger brother has 8GB). It comes with a 3.5mm audio jack and a 1500mAh battery, though it still remains to be seen if it suffers from the same extremely short battery life as the Galaxy i7500. It is the first Android to come with DivX support and it features the DNSe 2.0 sound engine. The CPU is still ARM11 based as in the Galaxy i7500, but the i5700 clocks it at 800Mhz, making it one of the fastest Android devices during its launch (November 2009).
