Helio launches GPS-based Buzzd for concerts, hotspots

updated 10:00 am EST, Wed February 6, 2008

Helio Buzzd

Helio this morning added to its shortlist of carrier-specific features with BuzzD. The new service depends heavily on the GPS location feature built into Helio's current phone lineup to provide information about events and other entertainment near the the device; subscribers can find out about concerts, pubs, restaurants, or other gatherings even when they roam to other US cities, Helio says. The service is also review-driven to help users pick out better places to visit, and permits user-submitted reviews that give a sense for the experience for recent visitors down to just minutes ahead of the BuzzD users themselves.

The BuzzD feature should be available immediately from Helio's phones through the main software deck; no price has been mentioned, though the feature is currently believed to be free for any Helio subscriber with an unlimited data plan.
