Dopod 838 Pro - HTC Hermes Based PDA Phone

The Dopod 838 Pro is pretty much the same as the HTC Hermes/TyTN, but repackaged with a 360-degree jog wheel for navigation inside the Windows Mobile 5.0 interface. Like the TyTN, the 838 Pro has 802.11g WiFi, EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0, quad-band GSM, EDGE, UMTS, and HSDPA.

It's going to be available from Singapore (Dopod is primarily a company that services the Asian market) for $1,398 SGD ($884) or $1,248 SGD ($789) with a contract. $884 is actually fairly decent for a Hermes-based device, seeing as pre-order units for the TyTN are around $1000 USD online.
