Helio Phones?

Does anyone know what network these things run on? Do they now have their own or are they reselling someone else under their branded name? I have been reading up on their 'Ocean vs iPhone" and like what I see but am not sure of their coverage - A map is a map but I want to know the network it is running on - I stay with Sprint for the fact that my phone works fuckin everywhere (and I noticed Vinnie from Entourage using the same one in last nights episode, I am waaaaay cool) and I am spoiled like that

Anyone carry one of these and can speak to its performance - It seems to have all the cool things that the iphone does not

My next step is to see just how big and bulky they are - It seems to have all the stuff that the iphone is lacking and Sprint's network is fast and solid - Some of the features are too "kiddie" for me but I like the all inclusive and unlimited EVERYTHING for $145.00 a month - Unmatched in the market today from a price standpoint

Does it run windows mobile apps so you can actually view attachments, and/or program custom apps?

It is not for work but for my personal use so viewing docs is low on the list - As for the apps, I just want phone, internet, Txt Msg and tunes

3G EDVO Rev A FTW. It's fast. It will get even faster once Rev B is implemented. I was out on the Fox river in Spring Valley, 10 miles south of Starved Rock and I still had EVDO coverage. Eat that iPhone!
