    Samsung I5700 Galaxy Spica is available, brings DivX to Android - GSMArena.com news

    This is not big, this is HUGE. The first Android to support DivX!

    Now, given that Spica shares a lot with our toy, can we "borrow"
    its player like we can borrow stuff from Behold?

    Dvix could be step in right direction. Xvid support might not be far behind then.

    Are you kidding? I'd love to have DivX. Xvid is a consequence :)

    There is no difference- both DivX and xvid are just two different sets of players and encoders for the same type of video.

    Video encoded with DivX will (with maybe a few exceptions on the fringe) work on an xvid-based player, and vice-versa.

    Definately good news- but I expect this means the newer phone contains hardware playback support for DivX... you can't just port that over to the galaxy icon, unfortunately.
