[HELIO launches the Heat mobile device from Samsung and announces the addition of online sites Boing Boing, Digg, Metroblogging and Wikipedia to the HELIO WAP deck.]

Los Angeles -- HELIO LLC today announced the newest addition to the company's portfolio of exclusive mobile devices -- the Heat(TM) -- and the addition of popular online sites Boing Boing, Digg(TM), Metroblogging and Wikipedia, to be available for the first time on a mobile service WAP deck. A slim, gleaming slider with an electrostatic touchpad integrated into a chic form factor, Heat is a high-tech device combining Helio's line-up of 3G content and services into a fashionable package worthy of the most style conscious consumers.

The Heat

Smooth as glass with a minimalist face and slender silhouette, Heat is a fresh mix of smart design and advanced technology. Produced by Samsung exclusively for Helio members in the U.S., Heat comes in two colors: high-gloss Onyx and shimmering Gold. Heat features a highly responsive exterior electrostatic touchpad with customizable sensitivity (super, high, medium, low) for navigation through a simple finger tap. Thin and pleasing to the touch with smooth sliding action, Heat has a 1.99 inch high-resolution QVGA display with landscape mode, stereo Bluetooth support, 136MB available internal memory, MP3, MPEG-4 and VOD support, Helio Music compatibility for music on the go, and built-in GPS capabilities for access to Helio services, including GPS-enabled Google Maps(TM) for mobile and Buddy Beacon(TM).

Offered for the first time by a mobile service, these sites are optimized for mobile and will be available to all Helio members. Boing Boing and Metroblogging are currently available on the Helio WAP deck, and Digg and Wikipedia should be available to Helio members this month.

The Heat is now available for $150 at and at retail locations nationwide. Boing Boing, Digg, Metroblogging and Wikipedia are free with Helio All-In Memberships, data charges apply for A La Carte
