Helio OceanThe Helio Ocean is a triple-deckered phone with a numeric keypad layer that slides down, and a QWERTY keyboard layer that slides sideways.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is the Helio Ocean. The very first Smart Phone from Helio which is a virtual carrier. The unusual thing about this phone here is that it has three layers as you can see. A black, silver and another black layer on the bottom. The silver layer is the alphanumeric keypad right here and when you flip it landscape wise, the final layer on the bottom here is actually a full size Cordy keypad. Wonderful design that separates out the phone function from the messaging function. As you can see, it's a very lovely QVJ screen. It's an absolutely gorgeous screen here. It supports all of the major internet email servers. We're talking AOL, Yahoo, Windows, Gmail even. It also supports all of the major instant messaging clients like Game and Yahoo IM as well. One of the most standout features of the Helio Ocean is the smart search feature. So let's say you're looking up Tom Cruise. You can just enter in Tom Cruise, straight from the default menu screen and you will be immediately presented with a page of search results from Google, Yahoo, Wiccapedia, IMDB, all in a single page. This goes for pretty much anything. It's a really smart device and I'm sure anyone who wants an integrated Smart Phone like this will really like it. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Helio Ocean. ^M00:01:34 [ Music ]
