    The price is right. Too bad it's running 1.5 without any UI enhancements. A good alternative to the Magic+ I suppose.

    Still waiting for the Xperia X10 though.

    The Spica is (supposedly) getting 2.1 in March/April. The Xperia X10 comes with 1.6, which means it will probably be Autumn or later before they get round to updating it to 2.1, assuming they do it at all.

    Personally, I prefer it not to have UI enhancements installed by the manufacturer. I can just add the ones I want myself

    hopefully manufacturers will figure this out. Just focus on the hw specs, leave the software features & upgrades to Google & open source community. They're reall investing time & money into something that Android customers don't care much for. MotoBlur? Sense UI? all cripple Android's upgradability.
