Pharos Traveler 117 clears FCC

We've had our eye on the Pharos line of phones for a little while now, and it looks like the Traveler 117 has cleared the FCC. [via unwiredview]

This is a navigation-centric phone (thus the name), with aGPS on board. Other goodies:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro.
  • 256 ROM/128 RAM. (Yeah, that's not that much these days.)
  • 480x640 VGA touchscreen.
  • Quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900); tri-band 3G (850/1900/2100)
  • agps
  • 2MP camera.
  • WiFi.
  • Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR.
  • MicroSD.
  • 2.5mm headphone jack.
  • 1410mAh battery.

All in all, a decent little device. Hopefully we'll see more out of the Pharos line (and its cousin, Velocity Mobile) in the near future. You can get the Traveler 117 online now for $529.
