Helio's newest handset, the Samsung-made Mysto, is now available to anyone with the desire and $149 (with contract) or $320 (without). I actually got to play with a Mysto awhile back under "promise not to tell" embargo and came away impressed. The handset feels super solid and luxurious, packing a nice heft (not heavy, just substantial) into a slim body and offering up basically all of Helio's services and applications.
Mysto features that front-mounted jog dial cropping up in all of Sammy's latest releases, and also rocks the GPS, EV-DO data, and other media, Web, and social networking goodies Helio maniacs get all excited about. This one's available right now, so browse over to Mysto's product page or your local Helio dealer to check it out. It's no Ocean, but it's a nice alternative if Ocean's bulk gets you down.
