Say you're in the market for a Helio device; perhaps a Hybrid
data card or that hot new Drift
all the kiddies are talking about. Could you get it from some third-party wireless outlet or Helio's online store? Sure, of course you could
, but where we come from, we go big or we go home. Helio's Santa Monica flagship store
has just opened its doors, and the MVNO is hoping would-be members (and current members alike) drop by to buy their next Helio device -- or, in the words of Helio honcho Sky Dayton himself, "cruise by to meet up or just hang out with friends." If Santa Monica is a bit out of the way, look for San Diego, Palo Alto, and Denver to flip their switches by year's end with New York following in early '07.
