No it is not duplicated question. Android versions are different. –  hakiko Mar 6 '13 at 10:37
But the problem remains the same. Some regions don't supply the Google Apps framework with the device, and if you wish to use the Play Store, you need to install a custom ROM and flash a GApps package. –  onik Mar 6 '13 at 10:41
I'm not sure: But was "Google Play" rolled out to pre-2.3 devices? I only have one device running with pre-2.3 (a tablet with 2.1), and it never got updated to "Play". Maybe the app is still named "Market" on the Ace as well? –  Izzy Mar 6 '13 at 13:59
