Helio rolls out GPS phone

Helio today introduced a new slider-phone called “Mysto”. It’s not an entirely new phone as it is based on the Samsung U600, which has been on the market for some time in Europe and Korea. The Mysto will sell for $150 and offer (free) GPS capability with Google Maps integration. For $3 per month, Helio offers Microsoft’s Tellme service, which enables users to search for local information via voice input.
