Pharos preparing GPS phone

Normally dedicated to stand-alone GPS navigators, Pharos has now turned its attentions to cellphones, beginning development on an as yet unnamed product. The phone will feature GPS functions prominently however, using a SiRFstar III receiver, and running Pharos' Ostia software on Windows Mobile 5.0. Owners will also get Microsoft's Streets & Trips for use on a PC, and a three-month subscription to Pharos' Smart Navigator web service. The phone will not be a slouch in the communications department either, boasting qualities such as quad-band GSM, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 1.9-megapixel camera. Though it will not have any 3G technology, it will support EDGE broadband and 802.11b/g wireless. No release information has been confirmed except that it will ship to the United States.
