Though Google I/O is mostly for developers, there's plenty to see for the average cell phone fan. On one floor, a display case had Android phones from around the world.

Samsung Galaxy S Giorgio Armani

At Google I/O a huge display case showed Android phones from around the world. Here's a selection of handsets that aren't yet available with a U.S carrier.

The Giorgio Armani edition doesn't offer any additional features over its Galaxy S brethren, but you get the goodies with a little more style. Expect to pay about $725 for an unlocked model.

LG Optimus B

Just when you thought there were enough Optimus phones, LG proves you wrong. A closer look, though, reveals this is actually the LG Optimus Black.

Motorola Glam

In addition to offering two SIM card slots, Moto's Glam brings a 3.7-inch display, Froyo, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and an HDMI-out port. The only problem was that someone put it upside down in the display case.
