pocketloox 610 Fujitsu Pocket LOOX 610 Review

Pocket LOOX 610 is a powerful handheld, based on Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 2003 software for Pocket PC, aimed at business professionals who want the features of a desktop right in their hands. In this review, the Pocket LOOX 610’s form factor will be compared to the Palm Zire 71 and the Nokia 8310, because these two are highly mobile tech-toys.

When the Pocket Loox 600 came onto the market, response was
mixed – it was undoubtedly feature-packed, but had more than a few flaws.
Fujitsu, one of the few responsive manufacturers, listened, and since the launch
last November, its heir – the Pocket Loox 610 – has been lauded by critics and
users alike.

Pocket LOOX 610 is a powerful handheld, based on Microsoft®
Windows Mobile™ 2003 software for Pocket PC, aimed at business professionals who
want the features of a desktop right in their hands. Harnessing the leading-edge
performance and low-power technology of the Intel® XScale™ PXA 255 Processor,
coupled with integrated Bluetooth™, optional integrated WLAN, and optional GSM /
GPRS CompactFlash cards, this small, lightweight handheld is a must-have for the
mobile professional. Using a hot spot, one can connect to a home or corporate
network, and synchronise calendar, contacts, mail, et cetera. All these plus a
brilliant top-of-the-range transreflective colour screen, and one gets a pocket
office perfect for those who are frequently out and about!

In this review, the Pocket LOOX 610’s (thereafter known simply
as Loox 610) form factor will be compared to the Palm Zire 71 and the Nokia
8310, because these two are highly mobile tech-toys. The Loox 610’s operating
system is Window’s Pocket PC, and so its hardware performance will be stacked
against top-range Pocket PCs by other manufacturers.

VR-Zone would like to use this platform to express our thanks
to Fujitsu for loaning us the Loox 610 to review.
