Pharos Traveler 117 approved by FCC

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
    Bluetooth 2.0
    USB 2.0
    2.5mm headset jack
    2MP camera
    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
    4.8 ounces

It seems that Pharos Traveler 117 can already be bought, unlocked, from the official Pharos website. Its price is of $529.95.
