OhGizmo Review: Helio’s Kickflip Part 1

helio kickflip

By David Ponce

Blogging from NYC here, folks. Got a Kickflip, from Helio in the mail three days ago, and I’m taking it out for a spin in NYC. This review is going to be a little less traditional than regular OhGizmo Reviews. I’ll give you my quick first impressions here, and then a link to a MySpace… where you’ll be able to get some “real-time” moblogging from a great freaking handset, and a great freaking service.

The Kickflip is a swiveler, and the swivel action is simply adDictive. A gentle nudge of the thumb, and it opens all the way. The screen is simply gorgeous. It’s got a 2MP camera, and a slew of other features I’ll get into when I have more time.

For now, you may direct yourselves to this MySpace. It’s OhGizmo1, because for some reason, myspace.com/ohgizmo was already taken. I guess that means we’re famous!

Allright peeps, have a good weekend, and keep checking that page… if you care.

Oh, and since I’m here: any good places to eat, under $10, in NYC?

  1. I’m very curious about your taste in phones. I am seriously fed up with cingular and my POS Sony Ericsson T637 phone so I’m considering switching to another provider.

    Here is my main problem though: Cingular has by far the best GSM coverage in the country and I’m a big fan of Nokia which makes almost exclusivly GSM phones. I can’t stand LG, Motorolla or Ericsson phones because i find their attention to detail lacking and their phones to be generally counter intuitive.

    Now I know that this is very much a personal thing. Some people absolutely LOVE Motorolla phones, but I refuse to make the same mistake that I made when I decided to give Sony Ericcson a chance. I’ve had this stupid phone for a year and I won’t let myself get locked into another phone that I hate.

    So, I would like to know if you have as militant a phone preference as I do and if so which phones you prefer/own.
