The Helix was definitely different, and I remember all the commotion they caused when they first came out. The magazines didn't know what to make of it. It is definitely styled like a maxi, but a little small. I guess it sits right on the line. Interesting that no one else came out with anything like it for a long time.
But then, what would you call an MP3?
