Samsung Helix (p)reviewcomment: 0 | Thursday, January 26 (2006) 07:27AM | Posted by Austin Vaughan
Basically, the Helix is a mp3 player/XM radio. During my tests, it worked very well, except for a few beta bugs. The battery life was really incredible. I used it heavily for a day, and when I plugged it in at the end of the day, it still had about nine tenths of a battery left. The sound quality was quite excellent, helped by the excellent earbuds that came with the device.

Well-built, colorful GUI, not too big, etc. The sucky part is the price - $ 400 - and they only come with 1gb of flash memory. Plus, you still have to shell out $ 10+/month for the satellite radio service. It's a good idea... but somewhere around $ 250 would be more reasonable.
