Attention: if you didn't join the masses in purchasing an iPhone this past weekend, we're pretty sure that mobile phone company/service provider Helio is interested in you. The company's newish flagship store, located on Broadway between Houston and Bleecker Streets, is outfitted with sleek wood paneling, futuristic lights and a Kermit-green couch for lounging. They're currently pushing three gadgets, the Ocean, the Drift and the Heat. More info available on their website and at CrunchGear.
