Helio has announced the launch of the Mysto for its Korean-language customers. This slider from Samsung shares the same design as the popular U600 for Europe. It will have EV-DO data with full HTML browser, a 2 megapixel camera, GPS, music player, stereo Bluetooth, and support for up to 4GB in the microSD memory card slot. The version available tomorrow will have Korean-language keypads and documentation. A regular English version of the Mysto will become generally available to all Helio customers in mid to late January. However, the Helio stores in Santa Monica, CA, and New York City will have a limited supply of the English versions of the Mysto available on December 26. The Mystos will not be displayed in the stores; Helio subscribers interested in a Mysto must ask to see one from behind the counter. The Mysto will sell for $149.

Oh Wow!

The United Nations should declare this an International Holiday, the U600 coming out for the CDMA'ers! After all this phones has been out in GSM for many months.
Um, not really. Try adding 3G, GPS, haptics and the Helio applications that the GSM version will never have - then you have Mysto.
Dec 26th will be a holiday. A CDMA U600? It will actually be fast.

Why is this so exclusive and secret?

Behind the counter? Limited supply? It's not like this phone is anything particularly special. It has the same specs as the other Samsung sliders on Helio.

Anybody care to enlighten? Or does Helio just want to feel special (like AT&T and the iPhone and Verizon and the Voyager.)
Exactly, its not that I think this is a bad phone, it isn't, but its nothing to write home about either. While I think Helio is kinda cool, it might be a bit more newsworthy if it was on Sprint and VZW.
yeah, I thought the same thing to myself when I read this, I though to myself "What's up with this not on display crap, and you have to specifically ask for it, what the heck is this all about???" I thought to myself???
Obviously, Helio doesn't need to make itself feel special like AT&T and verizon. Helio is releasing a few of the english specced MYSTO because they have got all the shipment yet. MYSTO's all out release date is Jan. 16. Even tho the phone looks the...
