With all the hype on this side of the pond about the upcoming Galaxy Nexus phone, we thought we would take a look at what the REST of the world has been enjoying.  The Galaxy line, featuring phones like the ultra compact mini, the funky Gio, the active Fit and the massive Ace have been available in the non-US market for a while. The king of the hill is the Galaxy Ace, and what a king it is.  Specs?  Yep – we got ’em.

Just move your hand in a predictive pattern and create words faster than you could type them!  With plenty of juice from the powerful 800 Mhz processor, you can make use of multiple applications at the same time, and enjoy the great 3D graphics.
