Look at the interface! It's so... clean... and efficient... look how many fields they fit on that QVGA screen - my Samsung with the same resolution only fits 3 or 4... wow... just wow. Bout time someone gave us something that could even slightly compete with Japanese and South Korean carriers.

i know it's totally vague but all helio would commit to is definitely launching this quarter. here's what we know about the whole sooner or later thing:

Eric (and Rich), thanks for the great info! As a gadget junkie Smile , I Helio's launch is right up there with say, an Apple product release - on pins and needles! I plan on ditching my Sprint phone and contract as soon as they have product available for purchase.
