As some of you may know, Samsung has announced that availability of the new entry-level Galaxy Ace 3 is imminent.

It is a nice upgrade over the current Ace2X and adresses the current problem with the current A2X, which is its single core processor. The Ace3 comes with a 1GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 and 1GB of RAM, which should give it comparable performance to the current Galaxy S II X (the S2X has a higher-clocked, but older-gen processor), but at a much cheaper price, probably priced like the Ace2X.

I think this phone would fit very well in Koodo's lineup and is priced to sell. It's performance is likely to be honest too (i.e. not frustrating), so I think it's a winner.

Thoughts? Alternatives? Should I just go hide in a corner in a fetal position?

P.S.: Koodo, bring us something from HTC too!

Good idea! Maybe replace the Ace with the Ace2X, and replace the Ace2X with the Ace 3. Also something new from HTC would be really cool

Hopefully we get it at launch, so we could replace some of our aging smartphones like the galaxy ace first gen or LG L3

I am so sick of the galaxy Ace line, nothing but problems. I will not buy any more Ace line phones, and would love HTC to be added to the current phone lineup.

Jennifer, don't put them all in the same basket. I remember the Chevy Cavalier. They now have the Cruze. Same family of cars, but really nothing else in common. I'd drive a Cruze no problem, but I wouldn't drive a Cavalier if it was given to me.

The Ace2X's problem is not that's a bad phone per se, it's simply too underpowered for people's nowadays expectations. There is no way to squeeze GalaxyS3's level of performance out of a $150 device.

Just wait and see! If Koodo ever releases it, you might just be pleasantly surprised!
