Helio Ocean Becoming a Better Smartphone Competitor

Although the Helio Ocean offers many of the features of a smartphone, most people would not classify it as one. Still, Helio continues to add features to this device to make it a better option.

The most recent of these is Helio File Viewer, which allows users to view, save, and share documents and images while on the go. These can either come in as email attachments or be saved directly to the device in USB Mass Storage Mode.

This application can display the contents of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe PDF, Plain Text, and HTML documents. It also serves as an image viewer (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WMF, EMF).

File Viewer uses technology from Picsel to allow users to zoom, move, and page up or down quickly once in a document. Members can also view documents in landscape or portrait mode on the Ocean’s 2.4-inch QVGA screen.

Exchange Support

Along with new attachment viewing capabilities, Helio is also announcing Mail for Microsoft Exchange 1.2, an upgraded version of its application that allows Ocean users wirelessly synchronize email, calendar, and contacts from their companies’ Microsoft Exchange Server.

The latest version includes improvements with alerts, calendar functionality, and synchronization performance.

More About the Helio Ocean

The Ocean is a feature phone with an emphasis on messaging. It has both a landscape-oriented sliding keyboard and a sliding numberpad.

In addition to its web browser, email, and instant messaging capabilities, it has a built-in GPS receiver.

This device can play audio either transferred to it from a PC or downloaded from the Helio Music service. It can also play streaming video from YouTube.

Its base price is $415, but drops down to $250 with a new service plan.
