Helio Ocean at Stores

Helio this morning shipped out the Ocean to both its online and retail stores. Announced back in March, the rare dual-action phone and QWERTY keyboard slider is set to bring multiple novel software features to back its hardware, including a unified message center for e-mail and IM, as well as an idle mode search that starts hunting for data through Google and other sites the moment the user starts typing. Pricing remains unchanged and the device goes on sale today for $295 through Helio's own outlets; EB, Gamestop, and other third-party retailers pick up on the Ocean as of May 21st.

The news of the Ocean also helps introduce a new unlimited voice option to match the company's defining unlimited EVDO Internet access. The plan lets subscribers call without ever worrying over distance, minutes, or roaming fees. Helio bundles the unresricted voice with its All-In unlimited data for $145 per month and also offers it with the A La Carte, pay-per-use data option.
