Videos of Helio Fin in Action

Helio released a series of new features with the Fin including HelioUP, Helio H.O.T. (Helio On Top), and Garmin Mobile. Below are videos of Helio H.O.T. first and then HelioUP. Then I threw in a video of the Media Player in action.

Unboxing the Helio Fin

Unboxing the Helio Fin

This is my first unboxing for SlashGear, so I went ahead and gave it a go in the video below. Then Vincent, who has had far more experience with this sort of thing, uploaded his, so that will be the video below mine.

The package came via UPS and contained the single sleeved box as usual along with the latest copy of Helio Magazine. The contents were the Helio Fin, the USB cable, the power cable, and the headset. Other than that there was the health and safety manual, the disc which contains the full manual and the quick start guides in PDF format, and then there is the quick start guides and a business card to give your friends.

SlashGear Review: Helio Fin

SlashGear Review: Helio Fin

So this morning I received in my hot little hands a Helio Fin. Its been well covered on SlashGear, and even more so in our forums. If you want the full list of details you can read the full information here.

The new features this Helio has going for it, though, are what you are likely most interested in and thus what I will cover most. First, there is the 3MP camera that is built in, then there is the thin and sexy clamshell form factor; I have borrowed a pink RAZR for comparison. Other than that there's Helio’s Ultimate Messaging Suite and Ultimate Inbox. The new features on the software side aren't small in comparison either. First there is Helio On Top or H.O.T., then there is HelioUP making it ever easier to geo-tag and instantly upload photos and videos taken with the Helio Fin. Last but not least there is Garmin Mobile, their new turn-by-turn GPS navigation software.

Helio Fin – Thin and sexy

Helio Fin – Thin and sexy

Helio has finally taken the wraps off of their latest phone device which is made by Samsung. The Fin is a thin and sleek clamshell phone that packs quite a few high-end features. But will it be enough to make me put down my Ocean?

The Fin is actually Helio's first clamshell phone, and it's definitely a good choice. It is currently the thinnest flip-phone available in the US measuring in at 11mm. The phone comes with a 2.3-inch QVGA display with a resolution of 240 x 320. The camera shoots at 3Megapixels with a 4x zoom, and shoots video in MPEG-4. Stereo Bluetooth is also supported.

Samsung SCH-U700, SPH-A513; Verizon Gleam, Helio Fin

I have no clue how someone else got these images before us, but it happened (happens?). Regardless, this photo is supposedly of Verizon’s new Gleam a.k.a. the SCH-A513, and then the one that I am most excited about, the Helio Fin a.k.a. the SPH-513.

The Helio phone has been known about for a while, no full feature list and no photos up until now, but when accessories vendors and Samsung’s site itself listed the phone as a Helio phone, the gig was kind of up. The only specs that we kind of new about the phone (I know, don’t call us a phone company; don’t call it a phone) was that it had a 3.0MP camera, it was to be a clamshell, and so far its name is the “Fin”.

Helio Mysto has finally arrived

Helio Mysto has finally arrived

Vincent got his Mysto by way of FedEx this morning, it looks great. He hasn’t yet taken the time to review it, so this is just pictures of a more or less dead phone, there is one with the phone on, but that’s it.

Helio Mysto finally hitting stores

Helio Mysto finally hitting stores

Not on a mass scale though, apparently they’ll actually only be available in the Helio NYC and Santa Monica stores, and even then they won’t be advertised at all, you’ll have to specifically ask for one to even see it, let alone buy it. However, word is, there should be enough available for everyone that shows up and asks for one on the 26th and 27th, then after that they’ll probably be out of supply, for about a month.

Virgin Mobile Helio Ocean 2 Quick Look and Unboxing

Virgin Mobile Helio Ocean 2 Quick Look and Unboxing

It's been a long time coming, but the Ocean 2 has finally launched and should be reaching customers' hands this weekend. Along the way, network Helio has been acquired by Virgin Mobile, and we've seen devices like the iPhone 3G, T-Mobile G1 and various high-end feature phones all crash the market. The stakes are undoubtedly higher, and the question is whether the Ocean 2 is too little, too late; we'll have the SlashGear review for you soon, but first off here's the video unboxing and some first impressions.
