    Hi all,
    I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions on my thread subject. I have the choice between two Android 1.5 phones - the LG GW620 and the Samsung Galaxy Portal (also known as the Spica, I think). I favour the GW620, particularly for its slide-out keyboard, but it seems as though it will only be upgraded to Android 1.6 - and even that doesn't appear to have been 100% confirmed yet. The Galaxy Portal has been upgraded to 2.1 in some territories, and is seemingly not far away from my chosen network.
    So, I just wondered what people thought? Is it better to take the handset that will at least push me into the Android 2.x bracket, or is it more important to be happier with the hardware itself? I am new to the Android market, and so am not entirely sure how big a divide in functionality there is likely to be between versions of the OS, as I move to the later part of the phone's contract term.
    Any thoughts are appreciated!
