Pharos will expand its line of GPS navigation equipment by launching a GPS enabled Pocket PC phone in February. Pharos will sell a rebranded E-Ten Glofiish X500, calling it the GPS Phone. The handset is a quad-band GSM / EDGE device running Windows Mobile 5. In addition to built in GPS, the phone features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an FM radio, 2 Megapixel camera and MicroSD slot. It will come with Pharos's Ostia navigation software for Pocket PCs. The GPS Phone will be sold unlocked through Pharos and will cost $700 at launch.
