Fujitsu Siemens 3G PDA phone 3GSM debut confirmed

Launches the Pocket Loox C550 in the meantime

Boost IT visibility and business value

Fujitsu Siemens' anticipated announcement next week of an all-singing, all-dancing pair of Pocket Loox T-series PDA phones has been confirmed, Reg Hardware can reveal. Separately, the company this week indicated the current Pocket Loox 700 may be for the chop, replaced by a new C-series model, the C550.

Sources familiar with FS' plans have revealed that the company will indeed unveil new Pocket Loox T series devices - believed to be called the T810 and the T830 - next week at the 3GSM conference in Barcelona. The devices' support for 3G mobile phone networks, GPS reception, and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity has also been confirmed.

The PDA phones will use Windows Mobile 5.0 Phone Edition and incorporate Microsoft's ActiveSync push email system. The new machines will be promoted with the slogan 'Always in touch with your business', and are the focus of FS' attempt to win business away from the Blackberry.

Separately, FS this week announced the Pocket Loox C550 as "the successor to the Pocket Loox 700 series". The slimline C550 will sport a 3.5in, 65,636-colour, 480 x 640 display and feature integrated 802.11g Wi-Fi, along with Bluetooth 1.2. It incorporates such essential business-oriented features as... er... illuminated buttons.

Based on a 520MHz Intel PXA270 processor running Windows Mobile 5.0 Premium Edition, the C550 has 128MB of ROM and 64MB of RAM. There's an SD IO slot for memory expansion and other devices.

The 11.6 x 7.1 x 1.4cm, 160g device contains a removable 1200mAh battery good for 500 hours' standby time, FS said. The C550 will ship mid-March for around €378 ($453/£259). ®
