There are good reasons for me to pick one over the other but it goes both ways:
1)The tattoo has sense , which looks amazing !
2)The tattoo is a bit smaller and cheaper !
3)The tattoo is probably getting an update to 2.1 and maybe beyond that !
On the other hand:
1)The spica has a clearly superior screen.Bigger , more hi res and amoled !
2)Divx support ! (dont know how well it works in real life)
3)Theoretically better specs (again real life is another thing...)
What exactly are your thoughts on that ?
FWIW, I ended up buying a Tattoo because of the Sense UI and the possibility of the OS upgrade, though I read somewhere that the Galaxy and Spica may also be getting the upgrade.
The Divx support was not a factor since I would not be using the phone for its multimedia features. I think the Tattoo has more RAM/ ROM compared to the Spica, that could be a factor to consider.
Depending on the phone you use now, you might actually find the Tattoo big. It is small when compared to the Spica but will fill your pocket. Spica might actually pull your pants down, so to speak
