Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox T810/T830

 Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox Due Q3 2006
13th February 2006

The Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox T810 is an advanced 3G phone running Windows Mobile 5.0, complete with WiFi and GPS navigation. The T830 model adds a 2.0 megapixel main camera plus VGA sub camera. It also features a QWERTY keyboard and a large 2.4" 240x240 pixel transflective touch-sensitive display.

The Pocket Loox may have a somewhat long-winded name, but it's one of the most impressive smartphones we've seen to date, and the fact that it comes from Fujitsu Siemens is a nice surprise (and ironically, it's competing somewhat with the P50 from the BenQ Siemens stable).

Looking a little deeper under the hood, the Pocket Loox has a 416MHz Intel PXA270 Xscale processor, 64Mb of memory (expandable using SD/MMC cards - slot is SDIO compatible), GSM 900/1800/1900 plus UMTS 2100 support, 802.11b and g WiFi support and Bluetooth. There are optional navigation packages to use with the SIRFstar III GPS module, although cost and availability is not known at present.

 Pocket Loox The software package is pretty impressive too, with Windows Mobile 5.0, Pocket versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Internet Explorer, plus Windows Media Player 10, MSN Messenger and various other applications available for the Pocket Loox platform. The Pocket Loox also supports VOIP calls.

The Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox is a big, heavy phone though. At 190 grams and 126x64x21mm, it's one of the largest devices around. Of course, it's also one of the best specified handsets on the market too, and it's lighter than the Nokia 9500 and substantially less weighty than the HTC Universal.

On the negative side, the screen is only 240x240 pixels which is less than the 240x320 pixel you'd expect for a device like this (although the transflective display could be impressive by the sounds of it). And it would be nicer to see more use made of the GPS capabilities, as the Pocket Loox does not seem to include a satellite navigation capability as standard.

Having a camera version and a non-camera version is a nice touch, as it will give the Pocket Loox a broader appeal. We wish more manufacturers would do this.

Overall, the Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox is an extremely impressive bit of kit, considering that this is the company's first attempt at a device of this type. It's a promising looking device, and it should have other manufacturers worried.

Estimated availability of the Pocket Loox T810 and T830 is early Q3 2006, priced at around 700 Euro.
