HELIO has unveiled its exclusive launch devices, the Hero and Kickflip (pictured), and initial details about its mobile service strategy.
The Helio service portfolio has also been carefully crafted to make Helio the hub of a connected group of friends by giving members extraordinary access to the people, entertainment and information they care about. Highlighting Helio's services suite is a partnership to optimize the mobile MySpace experience for Helio members.
The first two Helio devices, based on popular high-end handsets from Helio's partner SK Telecom, combine innovation from one of the most advanced 3G markets in the world with design elements and features tailored for the U.S. consumer.
The Hero, produced by Pantech, is a multimedia device, featuring a virtual mobile entertainment center with a 2.2 inch, 262K-color high-resolution QVGA LCD display, industry-leading audio capabilities with full duplex stereo speakers, removable memory, and a 2.0 megapixel camera with digital zoom and flash for capturing pictures and video. Hero also packs a co-processor chip that delivers high-quality music and video for an exceptional entertainment experience, allowing for versatility in content and services like never before.
The Kickflip, produced by VK Mobile, packs similar advanced features as the powerful Hero in a sleek body with an innovative swivel opening that flips to the right or left with the simple nudge of a finger.
Hero and Kickflip each sport an exclusive luminescent user interface designed by Helio. The Hero features a "night" themed interface, while the Kickflip glows with a "day" theme.
Helio will offer services customized for its members that combine access to friends, games, music, video and more with exclusive community-based functionality that enhances their overall experience.
MySpace Mobile On Helio will bring together the phenomenon of online social networking with the power of wireless connectivity to transform the way people discover, create and share within their connected lives. Helio is customizing the MySpace Mobile experience to free the more than 55 million MySpace users from their PC, giving them anytime, anywhere access to their MySpace network.
MySpace Mobile On Helio is a rich mobile service that leverages the devices' advanced capabilities to keep MySpace members connected to their network through mail, bulletins, profiles, blogs and photo galleries.
