Helio to up the MySpace ante with dedicated app

Helio to up the MySpace ante with dedicated app

Having pawed lasciviously at a limited edition Frost White Helio Drift, finding the GPS and "buddy beacon" features useful while the MySpace integration good if you're heavily into your social networking, it comes as no surprise that Helio are planning to up their game in the very near future.  MySpace Mobile v.2 will be a free download for Helio subscribers, a dedicated application for the site that promises speed increases of up to five times.  If I'm honest, I think this is something that should've been part of Helio's service from the very beginning; it certainly would've quieted the critics who pointed at the browser just about every modern cellphone has and said "why go with a specific operator?"

It's not all wine, fine cheeses and roses however.  Helio's exclusivity contract with MySpace expires very soon, meaning the other operators will be looking for a piece of the pie faster than a pie-loving cheetah.  Helio must be hoping that a dedicated app, together with new profile editing tools, speedier image uploading and "idle mode" functionality for displaying new messages and alerts on the handset's home screen, will help it keep its edge.

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.

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.

CES 2008: Joby GorillaPod Accessories

So the GorillaPod is not new, still cool, but not new, what is new is the accessories they are now packaging with it. There is a suction cup and a couple of Velcro attachments each of which are mountable on the GorillaPod just like a camera.

Tomato HD D-18 60GB HDD

Alright, so I don’t think it can get much better than this without going SSD. Because, this is not an SSD drive, this is a traditional HDD, a 60GB 1.8-inch Toshiba HDD to be precise.

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.
