Helio Hero Video Tour
Thoughts after having both...
Additionally, photos are stored as JPEGS instead of the strange "database"-like format that the Kickflip uses.
Overall the Hero is pretty kickass - great speakers, better audio player (it actually pumps out some solid volume through headphones), faster interface, faster browser, etc.
The ONLY shortcomings, and these apply to both handsets, are:
- Doesn't seem like you can set an MP3 ringtone. This is really bad on the Hero as it includes no standard ringers, only songs! I'm using the one that best passes for a standard ring.
- They don't run J2ME apps. Another dealbreaker for some, but I can deal for now. Additionally, the browser is strictly WAP-only, but they've expressed interest in another browser. The coming developer tools should speed this along - once I have Google Local for Mobiles on this bad boy I'll be all set.
