Video: HTC Artemis Pocket PC Phone Featuring GPS and Trackball

The trackball featured on the HTC Artemis Pocket PC is extremely unique.  This implementation is the first I’ve seen on any handset or PDAs (that I can recall).  Thanks to Bengalboy’s brief video, we get a glimpse of how the Trackball works.  In a nutshell, this is a quad-band handset with features like GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, EDGE, microSD slot, and a moderate size 1250 mAh battery.  It's ashame HTC left out the QWERTY keyboard.
