Helio today is introducing the Drift, the third phone for the young MVNO. The Drift is Helio's first phone from a major brand: Samsung, and is also the first phone on Helio to offer location based services (LBS). It is a slim slider featuring a QVGA screen, stereo Bluetooth, 2 Megapixel camera, 128 MB of memory and microSD card slot. Helio members with a Drift will have access to turn by turn driving directions using Google maps including traffic updates. Drift owners will also get to use Buddy Beacon, a location-based friend finder, to locate and call nearby friends who opt to be found. It also allows users to text offline friends requesting that they turn their buddy beacon on. The Drift is available in black or white for $225.
