Move over RIM, Samsung, and HTC; there’s a new smart phone player on the block named Velocity Mobile. This startup, which is collaborating closely with notebook ODM giant Inventec, is making its world debut with two new Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional phones, the Velocity 103 and the Velocity 111. Velocity Mobile needs to make a significant splash in order to compete with the big boys, and judging by the custom Windows Mobile interface Velocity calls “Odyssey: Phase 1″ and the super-suave shiny black exterior, this company’s wares are certainly going to tempt early adopters. We love the on-screen widgets that display the weather, date, time zone, and other at-a-glance information. The 103 has a beautifully large 2.8-inch (diagonal) touchscreen with 640 x 490-pixel resolution, as well as a BlackBerry-like trackball. This phone will be unlocked, and it supports 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi and high-speed HSUPA data networks. Other features include a 2-MP camera with support for 0.3-MP video conferencing, a microSD slot, and GPS/AGPS connectivity. The Velocity 111 is much like the 103 but opts for a smaller 2.5-inch display (320 x 240 pixels) in order to accommodate a full QWERTY keypad. Similar to the 103, the 111 features HSUPA data speeds, a 2-MP camera, GPS/AGPS, and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi. Both devices also feature Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity and are powered by Qualcomm’s 7201 processor. The Velocity 103 is due out in Q2 this year and the 111 should be available in Q3. Pricing is unknown at this point, but we hope to bring you more details once we meet with Velocity Mobile at the show.
