Velocity launches V103

Velocity Mobile on Wednesday announced its first touchscreen cellphone, the Velocity 103, is now available for sale. The smartphone, along with the V111, was introduced earlier this year, and uses a custom Odyssey interface on top of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. The quad-band device's software can be navigated via what Velocity claims is a simple to use 640x480 touchscreen. Software updates will also be simpler to download through a Velocity Over The Air (VOTA) program.

The V103's 256MB of internal memory will be complemented by a microSD card slot, while its 528MHz Qualcomm chipset works with 128MB of RAM memory. Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi and GPS are all accounted for, as is a pair of cameras: a 2.0-megapixel unit on the backside of the device and a 0.3-megapixel videoconferencing camera on the front. An uncommon feature is the TV/VGA output that allows viewing the phone's video content on external displays.

The unlocked Velocity 103 can now be pre-ordered online for the equivalent of about $590 via UK smartphone retailer Expansys and will ship later on in September. North American release dates haven't yet been mentioned.
