Helene

Helene

Helene is a phone, a PDA, a camera, a mobile email checker, and web surfer all in one. This little device helps keep me in-touch and well-organized. It can handle pretty much anything I throw at it. It has an unlocked bootloader and is rooted, so I can make it do pretty much anything I want it to.

It’s sort-of a laptop but also sort-of a tablet, but since it is a secondary machine I’m going to put it in the tablet category in my computer history. These lines are getting very blurry.
