Our man Dieter got some hands-on time with a couple of Velocity Mobile devices back at CTIA, and he reported that the 103 was, in fact, "a sweet device."

And Dieter knows sweet devices.

Anyhoo, Crunchgear spied the 103 as it made its way through the FCC, which means it might well make its way to a carrier near you. We'll let you know.

A recap of the 103:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro.
  • HSDPA (850, 1900 and 2100 MHz bands).
  • 128 megs RAM, 256 megs ROM
  • 640x480 screen.
  • 1450 mAh battery. 4 hours of talk time, 200 hours of standby, 2.5 hours of navigation.
  • WiFi.
  • Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
  • Mini USB connection.
  • Assisted GPS.
  • Micro SD card.
  • 2MP rear-facing camera, 0.3MP on the front for video conferencing (though don't expect any U.S. carriers to leave that intact)
