3GSM 2006: Fujitsu Siemens launches Pocket LOOX T series


It’s a hard life for a businessman on the move, having to drag around all the technology for work and play, which is probably why integrated solutions are growing ever more popular. Another challenger to the Blackberry’s dominance of the market has been launched at the 3GSM in the form of the Fujitsu Siemens Pocket LOOX T Series.

The T series models, which feature a QWERTY keyboard and a clear TFT display, operate as fully-featured mobile phones. But in addition, with Microsoft Windows Mobile™ 5.0 software and UMTS functionality, you can access ‘Push’ email plus your appointment calendar and other familiar Microsoft Office applications on the go. And if you have some leisure time, there’s an SD I/O / MMC slot to store your favourite MP3s and a 2MP auto-focus camera on the T830 model (pictured) to snap passing traffic.

The T series handhelds have integrated 802.11b/g wireless LAN with VoIP capability and like the N series, all models feature an integrated GPS receiver so you don’t get lost.

Available from July, the T series should retail for around €700 (around £480).
