Fujitsu Siemens will be launching its new LOOX handheld device at CeBit 2002. The device uses Microsoft’s Pocket PC 2002 operating system. It also has Bluetooth wireless technology, which allows users to transmit digital voice and data between mobile devices (laptops, PDAs, phones) and desktop devices.
The device has all the functions of Fujitsu Siemens’ existing SX45 device, but added to this it can support CompactFlash Type II. A GSM/GPRS module will also be available, turning it into a fully functional 2.5G mobile handset.
The company is being secretive about the processor and has yet to disclose any information about it apart from its brand, Intel. However, the word on the street is that it is an Intel Xscale processor that runs at 300 MHz with 64MB of RAM. This will be confirmed at the time of the official launch.
