Two weeks back Dell’s website leaked Pharos latest handsets, the Traveler 117 and 127. Well my friends, here they are in all their glory, or lack there of. There’s not a ton of tidbits to salivate over, but they both look to be solid smartphones with a heavy focus on GPS, since that seems to be Pharos’ bread and butter.

Contrary to original reports, both devices sport touchscreen and both have voice prompted turn-by-turn GPS navigation. The 117 boasts a 2.8-inch screen sans keyboard, where as the 127 includes a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.3-inch screen. The Pharos 117 and 127 will be available from all major retailer on December 1st for $530. Check the below for the other specage.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
