Review: Helio Fin
Fire up the music player from the keypad and it scans your phone and memory card for any songs it can play and then shows you a main menu sorted by artist, album, songs and more.
From there you can play through songs in a chosen list, or you can check off as many songs as you want and create a playlist of your own. Songs are listed and played in alphabetical order. Other than choosing "random" the only other ways to sort songs is by date or file size, not by track number. As far as we can tell, there is no way to play songs in track order.
Once playing, the Fin cannot do anything else, even returning to the track list stops playback. There are "sound effects" which are not exactly equalizer settings, but bass boost and settings that change stereo separation. Another feature the player has that's typically found on portable stereos is an A/B repeat, which lets you loop a section of a song and play it over and over.

Helio today is launching the Fin, Helio's first flip phone. It is based on Samsung's Ultra series clamshell, like Sprint's M610 and AT&T's A717, but even thinner at 11.4 mm and with an upgraded 3 megapixel camera.

There have been a number of "smartwatches" for kids in recent years. They all have GPS and let you keep tabs on your kid's location, and offer some limited forms of communication.
CAT has a new rugged phone for T-Mobile. It's a rugged flip phone, but that's not the most interesting thing about it.
