EXCLUSIVE: Latest screenshots of the Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:09 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Thanks to "Anonymous" I got some brand new screenshots of Fujitsu Siemens' Pocket Loox. Interesting is the speed menu which reminds on applications like WIS Bar or Compaq's iTask. The Programs doesn't seems to includes any surprises and also the Settings seems to be as we knew it from other Pocket PCs. An interesting fact here is that it seems as Fujitsu Siemens changed the icons to a Loox layout. Makes it more individual. :-) Fujitsu Siemens also added the well known "Expansion Pack Viewer" we already knew as "Expansion Pack" from Compaq.

The most interesting tool is the "Pocket Plugfree Setup" which lets you connect the Loox with different devices for applications and I wonder what the heck the "Shared Folder" is? Does it means that others could access my Loox on a defined storage location!? Sound pretty cool. Also "Access Serial Ports" sounds as other devices could access serial ports of the Loox. Might be the long awaiting connection sharing...

All together this screenshots looks pretty interesting and I'm just awaiting the availability; which should happened - according to different serious sources - within the next 4 weeks.

Cheers ~ Arne
