Pharos Traveler 117 has been around for some time, but it’s only now that it got FCC’s approval for being used in the US.
Built by Inventec, the PDA phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and comes with a pretty nice set of features – from advanced GPS capabilities to a high-res display.
Moreover, it looks quite nice too, so it might be a good alternative for any of the touchscreen handsets that are currently being sold on the US market.
Traveler 117’s full list of specs and features looks like this:
- Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz)
Tri band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity (850 / 1900 / 2100 MHz)
2.8 inch resistive TFT touchscreen display with 480 x 640 pixels
GPS and A-GPS
2.5mm headset jack
Secondary VGA camera for video calls
400MHz Qualcomm MSM7201 processor
128 MB RAM, 256 MB ROM
MicroSDHC cards support
2G talk time: up to 7.5 hours
3G talk time: up to 5 hours
Standby time: 200 hours
4.44 x 2.28 x 0.6 inches
It seems that Pharos Traveler 117 can already be bought, unlocked, from the official Pharos website. Its price is of $529.95.
