Dell intros Pharos phones?

A false start on Dell's website revealed the computer and monitor maker may soon get into the smartphone game as well with a pair of Pharos-branded smartphones, the Traveller 117 and 127. While the phones have disappeared since making their short-lived online debut, their specifications were revealed so we know what to expect if and when they do come to market. Manufactured by Inventec, the devices feature access to 7.2Mbps HSDPA networks, assisted GPS capabilities and Windows Mobile 6.1 with the Microsoft Office Mobile suite.

Both also share a 2-megapixel camera along with a 0.3-megapixel front-facing unit for video calling. Differences include the full QWERTY keyboard of the Traveller 127 and the touchscreen of the 117. From the photos, it's clear the 117 will also run the SPB Mobile Shell. The final piece of information pertains to battery life, with a talk time rating of four hours for each device, along with 200 hours of standby. No pricing or specific release information is known.
