Velocity 111 from Velocity Mobile clears FCC

Velocity 111

After the Velocity 83, the Velocity 111 is the latest device to get its FCC clearance.

The Velocity 111 is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7201 chipset and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. It comes with quad-band GMS/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity, a QVGA touchscreen display, a QWERTY thumb keyboard, 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM, GPS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2MP and a front-facing 0.3MP camera, TV/VGA out and a microSD expansion slot.

As many have noted, the Velocity 111 bears a striking resemblance to the BlackBerry 8800 with similar navigation buttons and trackball instead of a more traditional d-pad.

With FCC clearance in hand, it will be interesting to see where, when and for how much we will be able to buy the Velocity 111 in the United States.
