Samsung announces Android-powered Galaxy Ace, Fit, Gio, and Mini

Samsung’s global family of Galaxy S Android smartphones is growing. Today the cell phone maker announced four more members: Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Fit, Samsung Galaxy Gio, and Samsung Galaxy Mini. We won’t get a chance to see the new global devices until Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona, Spain, and the phones are all headed to Russia first (the Fit is available there now), with expansion to the rest of Europe, India, and China. The Galaxy Fit will eventually head to South American countries as well.

We do know a little about each device. Like their predecessors, the new phones have Samsung’s Social Hub for communications, as well as the Android Market and Samsung’s custom apps. They’ll also all include the Swype virtual keyboard for tracing rather than typing words on the screen (standard typing is still allowed, though).
The Ace is aimed at “trendy and sociable young professionals,” according to Samsung. It will feature a 3.5-inch HVGA display and 800MHz processor.
