Helio Ocean 2 is available today

Just a reminder that the Helio Ocean 2 is available today from Virgin Mobile.

We reviewed the Helio Ocean 2 at the beginning of the month, but today is the day when you can finally go out and get your hands on one. Yes, the Helio Ocean 2 officially launched today on Helio's Web site (which is run by Virgin Mobile now). Just some of the goodies in the new Helio Ocean 2 include an optical touch sensor pad, an improved keyboard, a tabbed HTML browser, plenty of e-mail and messaging options, and support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. You can read about all that and more in our Helio Ocean 2 review, and if you like what you see, the Ocean 2 is available for $149 from Virgin Mobile. Note that the red Ocean 2 here is a limited edition; Virgin Mobile plans to go with a black version of the Ocean 2 later this year.

To go along with the launch, Virgin Mobile also announced that Helio customers now have unlimited 7 p.m. nights and weekend minutes.
