Helio Ocean 2 in Feb.?

MVNO carrier Helio may ship its second Ocean smartphone as early as February, according to a company representative. The phone is at least due this quarter, which would put a release date no further than the end of March. The current Ocean is Helio's signature phone, a messaging device with many iPhone-like features such as a YouTube client and a built-in GPS receiver. The Ocean 2 is expected to have similar features, such as a microSD slot and a two-megapixel camera with flash.

The Ocean 2 should also have multiple instant messaging clients, and Exchange e-mail support. The most important difference in the phone may be the addition of a full HTML browser, necessary to compete not only against the iPhone but devices like the T-Mobile G1 and Palm Pre. It is unknown, however, if the Ocean 2 will include any touchscreen capabilities.
