The Samsung Galaxy Ace IIe doesn’t have the latest specs and it’s a far cry from being a flagship device, but the price is solid for an entry-level smartphone. Both Quebec-based Videotron and Halifax-based Eastlink have added this Android Jelly Bean device to their lineup. The specs of the Ace IIe have it powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, 3.8-inch display (480 x 800), 5MP camera that captures 720p HD videos. If you’re considering this on Eastlink you’ll have LTE speeds and the prices range from $249 outright, or $29 on the EasyTab. Over at Videotron, the Ace IIe is free on a 3-year reduced plan or $299.95 outright, with 4G HSPA+ speeds.

    i don’t understand Samsung’s and carrier’s logic.

    All these different devices that just end up confusing the market.

    This is what Samsung should do. The s2/s2x are awesome devices, they have better specs than all these ‘entry level’ devices. Why not sell them at $200+ off contract (currently 250 at Koodo), and free on contract and market it as the new ‘entry level’ device.

    Benefits to consumer:
    A pretty decent device, gets you through the day
    Gets proper update support ( slated for 4.2.2 )
    Cheap price compared to s3 and s4.

    Benefits to carrier:
    More shelf space for high end phones
    Very easy to sell, galaxy branding basically sells it self these days.

    Benefits to Samsung:

    Less devices to manage
    Less load on manufacturer
    Focus upgrade efforts on these devices
    Less user backlash on unsupported devices.

    WHATS THE PROBLEM!!!! Its a win-win-win situation.
