Are you familiar with Helio yet? If not I bet in 08 you will be! Helio has a slick device called the “Ocean” that may make waves big time as the new year rings in. Starting at about $199 (with plan) the device bundles all the popular things that you, hip, mobile users want and need – things like social networking ala MySpace, integrated GPS, Google maps, a swift 3G network, Music (audio and videos), YouTube access, gaming, messaging, and cool cutsom ring tones and images for customizing your device. Sure you can get all this on other smartphones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Palm etc… but these guys have made all this stuff front and center, simple to get to and cool… all important factors that will lead to sales. See www.helio.com – plans start at $55 p/month and include all you can eat data and messaging! North Americans still haven’t embraced the “smartphone” yet, maybe this will help stimulate some more interest… no smartphone yet – smarten up!
