Samsung Miniskirt Season 2

Turning its updates into a yearly refresh, Samsung on Monday released the Miniskirt Season 2, also known as the C225. The slider phone replaces the original C220 and adds a handful of features in addition to a suite of new colors. The 2-megapixel camera is one of the few to provide a smile detection for portraits; also new to the phone is haptic (vibration) feedback from the touch-sensitive buttons and a feature that finds meet-ups in SMS messages and adds them as calendar events.

Helio intros Mysto for Korean-speakers, English soon

Helio Mysto Korean Version

Helio on Friday took the unusual step of launching the Samsung Mysto first for Korean-language users of its US-based service, taking advantage of the company's roots in Korea's SK Telecom. Believed to have its roots in the U600, the thin slider shares the features of Helio's more recent phones, including its 2-megapixel camera, true GPS with a Buddy Beacon feature to locate Helio-using friends, and a heavy emphasis on its 3G Internet access. Users can both stream videos and upload them through YouTube, though the device is not believed to run the same YouTube app as the Pantech-made Ocean.
