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.

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.
