Reader James writes in about possible upcoming Helio plans:
So I was reading through what seems to be a
Helio sponsoredcommunity site: Heliofriends.com and one of the mods dropped that tomorrow a $200 rebate will kick in on the Kickflips through this site. Which means the Kickflips are free after the rebate.
Also, tomorrow is supposed to be the start day for a new price plan. $65 all-in data/500 min. This was also mentioned in a seperate thread.
Looks like they are trying to lower the price to bring some of the fence sitters down.
Pretty cool James. Part of us think they want to
start lowering prices offer a new rate plan because of their lackluster subscriber numbers. Add to that the recent troubles of VK Mobile, the manufacturer of one of their two handsets, Helio may be in need of some cash.
