Video: HTC Artemis Pocket PC Phone Featuring GPS and Trackball

Vincent Nguyen - Aug 29, 2006

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.
