    Pharos take the wraps off 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.

    Hands on galleries of Velocity Mobile’s new handsets (103, 83, 301)

    Velocity Mobile brought a trio of shiny new handsets to CTIA today, and we got to spend just a bit of time with all three: the 103, 83, and 301. In the flurry of crazy that is CTIA scheduling, I wasn’t able to spend enough time with’em to write a full hands on for each. Velocity hooked us up with a 103 to review, so we’ll have more to say about that one in just a few days. Read… Read More

    FCC reveals Velocity Mobile is not vaporware

    I was just thinking about Velocity Mobile this last week and was wondering when they might actually launch one of their Windows Mobile devices. We first saw them at CTIA in April, but haven’t heard a peep out of them until now.
