Pharos GPS phone on sale

Pharos has finally begun selling its first smartphone, the PTL600. First announced in January, the phone is notable for focusing primarily on its GPS functions, since it includes a SiRFStar III receiver, and millions of points of interest preloaded in its software. Owners can even get directions to Outlook contacts. The phone is also loaded with mobile versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, among other Microsoft applications, and can use its microSD slot to load music and videos.

Rounding out the hardware is an FM tuner, EDGE broadband, a two-megapixel camera, and wireless in the form of Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g. Pharos is also selling another version of the 600 called the 600E, which is different only in that it contains no GPS software, requiring buyers to find their own. Newegg is selling the 600 for $700, and the 600E for $540. [via Ubergizmo]
