Fujitsu Siemens Unveils LOOX Pocket PC 2002 Device


As the mobile revolution gains momentum, Fujitsu Siemens Computers prepares to introduce its new high end PDA, the Pocket LOOX, a powerful enabler of mobility for business users. This marks the latest advance in Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ strategic drive to allow companies to exploit the mobile business opportunity to the full. Key features of the Pocket LOOX are its high connectivity, speed and modularity, which allow busy mobile warriors to work seamlessly whether they are at home, in the office or on the move. Based on the Microsoft PocketPC 2002 operating system, this small, lightweight device with a very long battery life can also double up as a mobile phone, making it a business critical tool for the mobile professional as well as the demanding consumer.

The Pocket LOOX provides a super-fast processor – further details available at CeBIT – a colour touchscreen, Bluetooth and GPRS technology, making it a step into the future of mobility and connectivity. Integrated Bluetooth technology along with the Microsoft PocketPC 2002 operating system enables the business professional to connect wirelessly to their desktop PC and rapidly synchronize calendar entries, contacts, inbox, programs and files. When joining a Bluetooth hotspot, it is possible to browse the web, check e-mails, and get up-to-date information. A GPRS module will be available as a plug on, adding full mobile phone functionality to the Pocket LOOX.

Peter Esser, Executive Vice President, Volume Products and Supply Operations, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, highlights that “the key for future business success is the focus on mobility and connectivity. We believe that with the Pocket LOOX we will put a powerful tool in the hand of the business professional making true mobility a reality. Less time will be wasted synchronizing data between mobile and stationary devices, and productivity on the move is increased dramatically with advanced single hand operation and multiple expansion possibilities.”

The PDA converts easily to a mobile phone with a plug-on module, additional battery life can be added, and it also connects easily to digital devices such as digital cameras.
