We saw the Pharos Traveler 137 clear the FCC a few weeks ago, and Matthew Miller of ZDNet (and our own Nokia Experts) gives the phone a run-through. The 137 is a GPS-centric Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional phone. It doesn't have any U.S. carrier support, so you're not likely to see them roaming the streets in packs. But you can pick one up between $500 and $600, so it's not out of reach if you're so inclined.
Check out Matthew's unboxing and initial hands-on above, and head on over to ZDNet for his initial write-up on the phone.

How about someone from WMExperts does a review of the Pharos? From his comments you can tell he has already condemned the phone because it runs WM (and his lack of knowledge about SPB Mobile Shell even though it was installed points to a lack of familiarity with WM in general) which doesnt bode well for his ability to honestly review the device for its capabilities rather than how its "not" the iphone.
