Helio Ocean 2 coming soon
by Mark R
Virgin Mobile’s favorite dual slider will have a sequel that is soon to be released with the Helio Ocean 2. Like the iPhone 3G, the Ocean 2 is slimmer than its predecessor. It can also do the 3G thing, too.
The Ocean 2 will still have the slide-out QWERTY keyboard plus the slide-out numeric keypad. The screen is a 2.6″ TFT with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. As for memory, it has 512MB with a microSD card that is included.
Other features include Stereo Bluetooth, plus a 2 megapixel camera with location tagging and video recording. It also includes a GPS with Google Maps.
As for what else is inside the Helio Ocean 2, it has a variety of software applications to help the mobile user with all their daily activities. For example, it contains easy access to Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr as well as Opera Mini and Mail for Microsoft Exchange. There is a file viewer for ease in document editing, and the Ocean 2 even has options for 3D gaming.
If you are interested in the Helio Ocean 2, you will only be able to obtain it from Virgin Mobile on February 12th for $149. You will only be able to get it in one color: red. A black version will be available sometime later.
