Apple iPhone

Helio Ocean

The raw specs wont actually tell us much unless we get to see and feel one in our hands, the Ocean is set to be released in Spring '07 and the iPhone next month. For it's price, the Ocean is very tempting. I'd buy one , if not for the iPhone........sigh!

* Update : Helio Ocean's Operating System :
So what Operating System does the Helio Ocean use ?
- It uses it's own proprietary Operating System. So the OS is not sourced from the usual bunch.

lol, this is biased towards the iPhone, all the reviews show that the ocean is better though not as polished as the iPhones.
