Forget the iPhone.
The Ocean’s better. And available now. And ONE THIRD the price.
I haven’t been this excited for a consumer electronics, nay, any purchase, since I ordered the Nomad Jukebox back in 2002 (the iPod wasn’t working on PCs yet).
The Helio Ocean is at long last available for purchase, after driving me nuts with a vague “Spring 2007” release date. Click here for its features.
I’ve just scored a major victory in the battle for free time. The sooner I can do all of my email reading, blogging, Facebook-pruning, and other daily computer stuff while I’m bored on the bus and not in the precious free time at night, the better. I like to think that in the future, sitting in front of a desktop computer is going to be pretty old-fashioned.
And to add to my excitement, the Ocean is arriving via free two-day FedEx.
Even with all of the hype (and corresponding share price), Google continues to amaze me. A quick search for “Helio Ocean promo code” found:
