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.

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.

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.

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.

Helio Ocean update: Exchange compatibility & file viewer

Helio Ocean update: Exchange compatibility & file viewer

Back when we reviewed Helio's dual-sliding Ocean smartphone in May one of our first criticisms of the device was the lack of Microsoft Exchange support - without business-standard push-email, calendar and contacts syncronisation it was tough recommending the handset to business users. Helio answered with a beta of their Exchange upgrade, and they've today released the full, freshly polished version. At the same time, they've launched the free Helio File Viewer to streamline how the cellphone manages attachments.

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.
