Announced this morning, Samsung’s newest addition to the Galaxy smartphone line up, the Ace, will be available online and through Telstra’s retail stores, starting today. Available both outright and on a selection of plans. The 3.5″ LCD packing, 5MP shooting, handset will run in at about $528 outright or starting $0 upfront on Telstra $59 Freedom Connect Plan. The Galaxy Ace comes included with the normal suite of features, you’d come to expect from Samsung’s Galaxy range, including Navigon Navigation and Swype, all ruining atop Android 2.2 (FroYo). Hit the break for a full list of the Acer’s specs.

If you but HTC Incredible S outright from Telechoice it is $569. With just $41 more you get a bigger screen, front facing camera, better processor and update to Gingerbread. That should be a better deal in my opinion.

 $528 outright? Ludicrous pricing by telstra once more. But hey, we expected that. I was looking at this as a possible alternative to the huawei x5, which I’m thinking of getting. Reviews say that this one lags a bit, but the camera is brilliant. Sounds like it has strengths where the x5 is weak, and vice versa. Not a bad phone (although it does look like an iphone) but I don’t think it’s worth $228 more than an x5.

I stand somewhat corrected. That’s a great outright price for the incredible s.

I’ve actually seen it in stores for a few weeks now. I had a play around with it, it’s a nice little handset and didn’t look very iPhoneish in person to me.

Had a look as I passed the store today. It did seem a bit laggy, but then store demo models are never that snappy after everyone has fiddled with them. The camera seemed sweet – it couldn’t take shots (no sd card) but there didn’t seem to be much blur as I moved it around. Not a bad looking phone.
