In a conference call yesterday, SK Telecom, part owner of Helio, said that the MVNO's phones and sales network were ready and that the carrier will launch in May. A May launch appears to be confirmed by a second article about the MVNO which claims the launch is just days or weeks away. It was also revealed that Helio will include flat rate data in its price plans, and that the plans will be data first, voice second, similar to ESPN Mobile. Helio's plan prices have not yet been revealed. Because of this data-heavy skew, Helio realizes that it is likely to attract many power users, and has said that it expects to release more data-centric handsets towards the end of the year.
