As Fujitsu Siemens Germany confirmed, they will offer a Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrade for their Pocket Loox 718 and Pocket Loox 720 Pocket PCs.
The new Windows Mobile version will include Office Mobile (Word, Excel and PowerPoint Mobile), Direct 3D Mobile support, Windows Media Player 10 Mobile as well as it will support Windows Mobile 5.0's persistent storage functionality which prevents loosing data if the device run out of battery.
Fujitsu Siemens will offer the Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrade as a web download from fall (German availability is scheduled for September 26), a price wasn't announced yet.
That's definitely good news for Loox owners and appreciated that FSC is taking care as well as going to continue support of their flagship Pocket PCs.
