Get around town and stay connected with Pharos GPS Phone

image_23361_largeimagefile Get around town and stay connected with Pharos GPS PhoneThey didn’t put too much effort into naming the device, but the GPS Phone from Pharos has got just about everything you need for the day-to-day, including full turn-by-turn navigation (as you probably already guessed).

It’s GPSness is powered by the latest SiRFStar III chipset, accompanied by Pharos’ Ostia navigation and routing software. The bread and butter runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 with Microsoft Office Mobile, while you’ll get all your entertainment needs met with the video-capable 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, and WMP10 Mobile.

Connectivity isn’t an issue either with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, in addition to Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and 802.11b/g WiFi. The 2.8-inch touchscreen is pretty impressive too. Pricing has been set at $699 with a launch planned for February.
