Rumor: New Phone from Helio the "Drift"?

Helio, the young-and-fun media-heavy 3G cell service, will soon be enabling the MySpace habits of even more Gen Yers, according to third-party software maker XCE. Naughty, naughty, speaking out of order on Helio's behalf!

A Samsung model is slated to appear first, with anonymous tipsters claiming the slider will be called "Drift" and come with a 2MP camera; later comes one from Pantech. Expect either or both to be unveiled mid-November, coinciding with a New York Helio party, and likely on sale shortly thereafter as the bar-of-soapy Kickflip is out of stock at the online store.
