As you have read on the::unwired some days ago already, now Fujitsu Siemens Computers officially announced the Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrade for their Pocket Loox 718 and 720 Pocket PCs.

See the official press release from FSC bellow:

Fujitsu Siemens Computers will offer the Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrade in fall 2005 for the following handhelds:

  • Pocket LOOX 718
  • Pocket LOOX 720

The new software enables users to take advantage of several new productivity and multimedia enhancements, like updated Microsoft Office programs, Direct3D Mobile support and Windows Media Player 10. It also supports persistent storage capability, helping to protect against the loss of personal data and applications when batteries discharge completely.

The upgrade packages will be available this fall when the operating system is released at:

The Pocket LOOX 718 and 720, which were released in fall 2004, are the best companions for personal information management and a platform for mobile access to business applications. The Intel® PXA272 processor and the Microsoft Windows® MobileTM 5.0 turn the handheld into a pocket-sized office.

Extendibility for business applications
The Pocket LOOX 700 Series is equipped with a slot for SD I/O and for CF cards, making them especially flexible in terms of use and extendibility. The VGA screen of the Pocket LOOX 720 with its 640 x 480 resolution provides a crystal-clear display and supports output in landscape format. As a result, Pocket LOOX users can now use numerous standard applications which previously required a notebook or PC. The built-in 1.3-megapixel camera with integrated flash and video function makes the Pocket LOOX 720 interesting for users who have never considered using a handheld in their work environment. The weight is less than 180 grams.

Communication via different channels is becoming more and more important in both professional and personal environments. The Pocket LOOX 700 Series offers WLAN (IEEE 802.11b WiFi certified), Bluetooth 1.2 and Consumer Infrared. Users who want to be reachable anywhere can use the optionally available CONNECT2AIR GSM/GPRS card to establish connections via GPRS for surfing the internet or logging on to the company network.

Telephoning via the internet is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional transmission channels. With this in mind, the Pocket LOOX 700 Series has been fitted with a special speaker which, together with the integrated microphone and the corresponding add-on software, transforms the Pocket LOOX 700 Series into one of the first VoIP systems. With its 3.5mm headphone socket and long battery life, the Pocket LOOX 700 Series acts as an MP3 player. Storage media such as the Memorybird or Storagebird from Fujitsu Siemens Computers expand the storage capacity of the Pocket LOOX 700 Series via the USB Host 1.1 to well into the gigabyte range.

Battery concept
The replaceable 1640-mAh battery provides enough power for up to 12 hours' uninterrupted use, after which a freshly charged battery can be fitted in next to no time. The docking station of the Pocket LOOX 700 Series serves as a charger for a replacement battery, and during the change, which can take up to 30 minutes, the built-in buffer battery ensures that no data is lost.

Indeed good news for Pocket Loox 700-series owners!

Cheers ~ Arne
