Pharos PT137 Announced

Pharos PT137 Announced Right. Enough messing around with site code, back to the business in hand. This week it’s CES in Las Vegas (Viva!). The Consumer Entertainment Show should see a few announcements in the wireless arena, and already Pharos have announced this – the Pharos Traveler 137 GPS Smartphone. As usual with the word “Smartphone” it’s actually a pretty generic term for this unlocked Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional device with pay-as-you-go GPS navigation, WiFi and Bluetooth.

Deep-down you’ll find a Qualcomm MSM 7201A CPU running at 528Mhz, tri-band 3G and quad-band GSM / EDGE / GPRS. There’s a 3 megapixel camera, microSD slot with SDHC capability and an audio jack. The screen is a flush 3.5 inch 480×800 pixel WVGA unit, making this a pretty respectable handset indeed.

Prices will be set at around $599.95 (£412.93) and it should be available from the end of this quarter.

UpdateEngadget have a great hands-on with this device.
