samsung helio heat

today released the new Samsung Helio HEAT handset, which is not only cheap at $150, but also feature-loaded.

Boosting a clear 1.99″ QVGA display enables the Samsung Helio HEAT to make viewing videos, either stored on the 136MB internal memory or streamed over the 3G network, a pleasure. 136MB internal memory isn’t bad, but sadly the Samsung Helio HEAT doesn’t offer any memory slots for expansion and therefor your phone might quickly be full with MP3 music and MPEG4 videos. Music can either be transferred from your PC from your existing collection, or bought on the move for $1.99 or $0.99 on your PC.

As other Helio handsets, you can take advantage of other mobile content, such as MySpace, several blogs including BoingBoing and also the great Wikipedia.

One of the great HEAT features must be the built-in GPS receiver and Google maps, making navigating through unknown streets much easier. It also offers Samsung’s buddy seek, which is a kind of modern stalking function in my understanding.

At $150 I would be one of these instantly, but sadly it’s not going to be much use in Europe.
