Virgin Mobile Helio Ocean 2 reviewed: better, but better enough?

After its unboxing last Friday, the Virgin Mobile Helio Ocean 2 is back for a more meatier review.  The dual-sliding QWERTY handset has taken some time to arrive, and it's finally dropped just in time for would-be users to ask if MySpace, chunky casings and 2GB of onboard storage is enough to tempt them in.  Engadget Mobile have been comparing the Ocean 2 with its first-gen predecessor - together with the rest of the current feature-phone crowd - and have come back with mixed feelings.

Helio Mysto hitting mass market today

Helio Mysto hitting mass market today

So the Helio Mysto, the second phone Helio stole from Samsungs top of the line Ultimate Edition line, is finally hitting the market so everyone can get one. If I may remind you, they had a 2-day sale of them in just a couple stores for the two days right after Christmas and then that was it.

Helio Refreshed Ocean

Helio Refreshed Ocean

Sure it’s refurbed (r0cks0rz), but its also less than half the price of a new one. So, if you have been looking at picking up a Helio, specifically an Ocean, you can get a used one from Helio for $99 flat. Then you can get unlimited everything service wise for $99 bucks a month.

So, at this price, you can finally afford to get yourself one, con your friends into signing up, or gift one for the holiday season. Any way you go with it, this is an amazing deal.

Sure, you could buy one of these and pretend like you know something about following directions and using a compass, or you could just quit playing macho and go buy something with GPS and a touchscreen. No seriously, how many of you out there actually know what a compass is let alone how to use one?

I learned, thanks to the BSA, I am pretty sure it’s a requirement along the way to getting your Eagle Scout, but after I learned how to use a map and compass and other markers to find my way if I ever got lost, I started realizing how few other people know how to. With this day and age of everything even my iPod Touch (thanks to some hacking) having maps, and more devices every day, including my Helio, having GPS, its only gotten worse.

Rumor: Helio Mysto is Samsung U600?

Rumor: Helio Mysto is Samsung U600?

God I hope so, that is one sexy ass phone. Helio does always manage to pick the cream of the proverbial crop when it comes to phones, most recently the Fin, and amazing phone packing GPS a 3MP cam, support for up to a 4GB microSD card, a huge screen, it really was a work of art.

And now, if this rumor is true, they are getting a phone that looks like a slider version of and updated, and slightly better looking, version of the Fin, and I am sure it will have more/better features too. Helio is the company that knows how to do a slider correctly too, just look at the Ocean, one of the few phones out there without a touch screen that is still a decent competitor to the iPhone.

Update 12/22/2007:Helio Mysto Unboxing Video and First Look
Update 12/21/2007:Helio Mysto Soft Launch!

As Disney retires their cellphone service, so Helio has seemingly retired one of their most popular handsets: that's right, the Drift - which our sister site SlashPhone liked so much they made it the star of several videos - has been put out to pasture to be replaced by a new model, the Mysto.

As is ever the case, the tight-lipped lovelies at Helio are letting no details escape them until closer to launch, although an FCC filing for the Samsung SPH-A523 went live back in August only to be fingered as the newby in Helio's range.

MySpace Mobile now available on more devices than Helio handsets

MySpace Mobile now available on more devices than Helio handsets

Don’t get me wrong, I still very much recommend you get a Helio, they are amazing devices, but if you’re not able to for some reason, you will still be able to access MySpace on your mobile. Apparently a mobile MySpace was also available on AT&T handsets as well.

With the new MySpace mobile, you will be able to send and receive messages, manage friend requests, comment on pics, post bulletins, post blogs, and find new friends and/or groupies. That’s a lot of stuff to do on a device that’s probably lacking a QWERTY keypad.

Helio Cuts 100 Jobs, Nothing To Worry About Though

Helio Cuts 100 Jobs, Nothing To Worry About Though

So Helio, our, well at least, my favorite mobile provider and purveyor of some of the best devices on the market, cut about 100 jobs the other day. Thankfully, they didn’t cut them because of financial woes, in fact it’s quite the opposite.

They cut those jobs because July was a record month for the company and August has already beat that record by at least 25%, which caused them to take notice of where they weren’t making money. So, they are still in business, and it looks like they will be for a while.

Helio Ocean hacked to include Opera Mini

Helio Ocean hacked to include Opera Mini

I'm a person that loves choices, especially when it comes to my web browser. Even back when I was younger I was a Netscape kid, then again I was a Mac kid too. Nowadays I use Firefox, and I've got no complaints. I know that many people are starting to turn to Opera, so much so that the guys over at Heliocity have hacked the Ocean to support their favorite browser.
