The Ace up Samsung's sleeve is the first smart phone to be named after a Doctor Who companion from the 1980s. Other Who-related names were discounted: one prototype was called the , but it was really annoying and ended up crashing.
The Ace (shown above, on the left) is a device of many names. When other photos of it leaked last week, it was suggested the phone was called the, and it's also been linked to the official-sounding moniker of Samsung S5830.
Samsung S5670 is the number assigned to the phone reported to be called the Suit (pictured above, to the right). That's surely a terrible name -- and, believe us, we know a thing or two about coming up with. Still, at least 'Suit' suggests serious business -- after all, when you're wearing a suit on the outside, you're also wearing a suit on the inside.
Specs are unconfirmed, but the usual line-up of features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a micro-USB port, a 5-megapixel camera, and a micro-SD card slot are a safe bet. The phones are also rumoured to sport a 480x320-pixel touchscreen.
We don't know much more, but it's likely the new phones will be unveiled at phone-fest Mobile World Congress in mid-February. We'll be there, so keep it Crave to see the Ace and Suit take their place in the Galaxy line-up, alongside the Galaxy Tab tablet and MP3 player. Do you think Samsung's line-up will be ace or thoroughly unsuitable?
