HTC's Pharos: lighting the way?

The pic comes courtesy of Portuguese-language website PCDelbolso.com, which maintains the Pharos has 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0.

The handset's based on a 200MHz Texas Instruments processor running Windows Mobile 6 and HTC's Touch UI on top of it. It has 128MB of memory and a 2.8in, 240 x 320 display.

If the site hadn't mentioned GPS integration, it would have been obvious anyway: the picture clearly shows TomTom's name.

What's not known is when the Pharos will go on sale over here. Or whether it'll include appropriate graphics acceleration drivers.
