|HELIO, a new mobile carrier aimed at the kids—you know who you are—will launch this spring with two phones, the black Hero and the white Kickflip. The Hero is a rebadged Pantech phone with a slide out keyboard and 3G compatibility, while the Kickflip is made by VK Mobile.|
Like Boost and others in this space, HELIO is joiny venture between SK Telecom and Earthlink. They’re even hooking up with MySpace to provide email, messaging, and photo viewing. That might sound lame to some, but there’s no denying the MySpace market is massive.
There’s no information on the price, yet, but the phones are pretty hot and they have a unique HELIO UI.
