A new Windows Mobile smartphone which is GPS enabled is being made available from Pharos Science & Applications. This unlocked mobile – the Traveler 137 – will be available sometime in the next few months for around $600.
The Traveler 137, said Pharos, comes in a slender design and sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen display. It is said to offer full-featured navigation with voice prompts on a pay-as-you-go basis. A built-in three megapixel camera records picture and video while a second camera on the front of the handset enables users to participate in video conferences.
Other features of this smartphone include Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, GSM/3G quad band/tri band coverage, up to four hours of talk time and a hybrid navigation system which lets a user display maps, create routes and navigate door-to-door when out of a carrier coverage zone.
