Pharos picks up two Velocity Mobile devices, announces Traveler 117 and 127

Well, well, well. Looks like Velocity Mobile finally found someone to pick up their Windows Mobile devices.

Today, Pharos introduced the Traveler 117 and Traveler 127 GPS smartphones. Each device hasn’t changed a whole lot since we first saw them at CTIA last year, but they’re now equipped with Pharos’s Smart Navigator software, which is specifically designed for Windows Mobile.

The Traveler 117 has a 2.8-inch touch-screen while the 127 has a smaller screen measuring 2.5-inches, but comes with a full QWERTY keyboard.

Both devices are 3.5G and will go on sale December 1 for $530 online at Amazon, Dell, Newegg and eXpansys.
