Review: Pantech Ocean 2
With all of its capabilities, there's no doubt that the Ocean 2 is Virgin/Helio's flagship phone for 2009. The software is well done, and the incorporated social networking and messaging features are well-matched to the form factor of the phone.
The hardware doesn't inspire us all that much. It's bigger and heavier than we prefer our phones to be, but this will surely not bother everyone. It's hard to make a dual slider much smaller than the Ocean 2. Having access to both a QWERTY and 12-key make the Ocean 2 a capable phone and one that lets you choose the fastest way for inputting whatever it is that you need to enter, with one hand or two.
The capable browser and good camera are highlights of the Ocean 2, but don't overlook it's integration with Helio services, GPS, software support and fun user interface.
