Helio has just launched the Mysto, a super slim slider that's basically the CDMA version of the Samsung SGH-U600. However, it has a few more things going for it than the U600. For one thing, it has built-in GPS, which lets you use GPS-enabled applications like Google Maps and Helio's own Buddy Beacon that lets your friends locate you and vice versa. Helio also partnered up with Microsoft's Tellme, a local GPS-based search application that will look up directions simply by voice recognition. If you prefer turn-by-turn voice navigation instead, Garmin Mobile is available, too. Another handy GPS application is called WHERE, which lists customized info like the nearest pub, gas station, and so forth.

The Mysto also comes with the standard Helio features like IM, POP/IMAP e-mail, Microsoft Exchange Sync compatibility, one-click search, access to Helio Music, a full HTML browser, and built-in EV-DO. Other features include a 2.0-megapixel camera, a music player, and stereo Bluetooth. It's available now for the retail price of $320, but you can get it for $149 if you sign a new contract.
