Helio Drift: Third Time’s a Charm!

Helio Drift: Third Time’s a Charm!

Helio’s new Drift is by Samsung, featuring advance GPS technology (I love GPS!), GPS-enabled Google Maps for mobile and Buddy Beacon. It’s compact, elegant, optimized access to the high speed 3G network. It comes in two colors – gunmetal black and frost white (I was told we’re getting the frost white one in a week or so – yeah baby). The Drift is a sweet phone, featuring a 2.12 inch high-resolution QVGA display stereo Bluetooth (another yah), 128 MB internal memory expandable via microSD, 2-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and flash, MP3, MPEG-4 and VOD support. Damn that was a mouthful! Now why didn’t Helio go with Samsung in the first place is beyond me…but third times a charm. Click over for more images and the press release.

Helio’s First and Flagship retail store

Helio’s First and Flagship retail store

Hi everyone, I just wanted to share with you that Helio is opening their first (and flagship) retail store right down the road on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica pretty soon. (It'll be on the north end, between the Apple Store and Banana Republic).

They’re working with the best in the industry to create a pretty amazing destination (Gensler is our design firm, of Apple Store fame). They’re creating an environment where both members and potential members can come in and experience Helio in some pretty cool ways. No lines, boutique treatment, "spa" services for members (like device cleaning) - just a cool place to be. Click over to see more renderings of the store as well as the press release.

The Samsung S73 digital camera comes in color form

The Samsung S73 digital camera comes in color form

I always keep around two seperate cameras, one for just quick snapshots, then one I keep for actual photography. I enjoy photography merely as a hobby, but it is ridiculous to carry around a high powered camera all the time. Sometimes ya just need something small that you can slip in your pocket. This Samsung is not only portable but it comes in several different fun colors.

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile SideKick LX

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile SideKick LX

Alright, so I got the Sidekick LX the other day, and I have been playing with it for a while. The people at T-Mobile were great and sent me the device to toy around with, sadly the service where I live is shoddy at best, but the city where I go to school has great service, so I got to really test it out up there.

First off, let me state that I have never even seen a Sidekick before this one, so, this won’t be a review comparing this Sidekick to other previous Sidekicks, this will be a review about this Sidekick model, with comparisons to other devices I have used where applicable. Let me start by saying that this may not be the best phone if have ever had my hands on, but it is the best everything-else device I have had my hands on.

SlashGear Review: Palm Series 3 Bluetooth Headset

SlashGear Review: Palm Series 3 Bluetooth Headset

So the people at Palm were kind enough to send me their latest Bluetooth headset offering, the Series 3, for review. I have had it for about 2 weeks and I have been using it a lot, primarily with my Helio Fin, but I paired it with the Centro I have here too.

It works amazingly well. I truly was impressed, I have a Jawbone sitting around here, and the Palm, in my opinion, worked better than it. Part of that was due to the fact that the Palm headset has easy to use buttons, where as with the Jawbone I had to nearly drive the damn thing into my skull.
