GPS Phone + CES award for this phone announced

Powerful Communication

In a single, powerful handset, Pharos packed multiple wireless options designed to ensure that customers are always in touch via digital voice and data communications. The GPS Phone features quad-band Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) cellular mode, Global Packet Radio Service (GPRS), EDGE, WiFi and Bluetooth � all in a lightweight, slim smartphone running the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC platform. The GPS Phone includes standard calling features and ships with an unlocked SIM slot so customers can use an existing GSM SIM card or sign up for service with the GSM carrier of their choice.

Advanced Navigation

The GPS Phone also combines Pharos� industry-leading Ostia navigation software and real-time location services with the highly sensitive SiRFStarIII Global Positioning System receiver to provide an easy to use, precise navigation experience. Using the GPS Phone, customers can navigate to Outlook Contacts, Points of Interest or entirely new locations in just a few taps of the unit�s touch-screen display. Pharos installed detailed Tele Atlas street maps of the U.S. and Canada so users can view their route as they navigate door to door via voice-prompted, turn-by-turn driving instructions. Multi-stop routing and automatic re-routing when off-route round out the unit�s many reliable navigation functions.

Versatile Entertainment

Built to be an essential tool on the job or off, the GPS Phone features a two mega-pixel camera with flash that records and plays back pictures and video. The multi-purpose device also includes an FM radio and Windows Media Player 10 Mobile. Its large, 2.8-inch, touch-screen, color display makes it easy to appreciate high-resolution video, watch TV, and access music files.
