>> I'm Nicole Lee, assistant editor of CNET.com and this is the Helio Heat. It is the latest handset from the Helio cartages [assumed spelling] a MVNO which is a mobile virtual network operator. And as you can see it's very small and compact, very minimalist designed phone right here. It's very sexy in design. It is a slide-a-phone, it's manufactured by Samsung. On the front you can see a very nice, very bright display, on the side here we see a on off switch, the power button. And we see a dedicated camera button. On the other side there's a volume rocker and the media play button. On the front here the soft keys and navigation keys here are actually electrostatic which means they're touch sensitive. And it's very similar to the ones on the LG Chocolate, you know with the little media player controls on the Chocolate. On the bottom here are pretty flat keys. As far as features go, there's access to Helio staple of multimedia offerings, it has MySpace mobile, there's Google maps because this is a GPS enabled device, there's also Buddy Beacon which is Helio's friend locator service. So in the text messaging, email, video recording, voice recording, speaker phone. So a lot of features in a very small and compact phone. We just can't get over the touch sensitive buttons, they're really a pain to maneuver and press. We just wish the buttons were easier to use. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Helio Heat.
