Sprint uses announcement of Nexus One to pimp Android 2.1 on Moment, Hero

Yeah, that's pretty impossible to read. Fortunately we're trained in the art of squint-eyed-reading, so we'll translate. The gist of it is that Android 2.1 indeed is coming to the Sprint Moment and Hero, and it should be relatively soon.

  So for reasons that currently escape us, Samsung has decided to release a commercial showcasing the Samsung Behold II--yep, that middling Android 1.5, TouchWiz UI running phone that never picked up much steam when it was released way back in November.

Samsung Galaxy I5700 Spica Getting Android 2.1 in Q2

Looks like another Android phone is getting blessed with Android 2.1. And that phone would be the Samsung Galaxy I5700 Spica.
