Pharos Introduces the GPS Phone Windows Mobile Device
Pharos Science & Applications, Inc. is targeting business and leisure travelers, with its first GPS-enabled Pocket PC. The GPS Phone offers a full-featured navigation experience on a device with multiple wireless options and the added convenience of a two megapixel camera and FM radio.

The GPS Phone will be available in February 2007 in the U.S. retail outlets and online stores.

In a single handset Pharos packed a quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) cellular for voice and GPRS, EDGE, WiFi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth for data. The device is 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.

The GPS Phone also combines Pharosí Ostia navigation software and real-time location services with the highly sensitive SiRFStarIII Global Positioning System receiver. Using the GPS Phone, customers can navigate to Outlook Contacts, Points of Interest or entirely new locations in just a few taps of the unitís 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 unitís many reliable navigation functions.

The GPS Phone extends the office with Microsoft Office Mobile applications that include mobile versions of Outlook (for emails, contacts, calendars and tasks), Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player 10 and more.

With a Lithium-Ion Polymer rechargeable battery users can achieve up to 5 hours talk time, 15 hours of PDA use and up to 160 hours standby.
