Fujitsu Siemens has just announced a pair of new models in its Pocket Loox line, both of which will offer some form of wireless networking.

Pocket Loox 610 One will offer both Wi-Fi (802.11b) and Bluetooth and be named the Pocket Loox 610 BT/WLAN , while the second will have just Bluetooth and be called the Pocket Loox 610 BT.

Of course these will feature Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC. The dual-wireless model will come with 128 MB of RAM, while the Bluetooth-only one will have 64 MB. Both will run an Intel XScale PXA255 at 400 MHz and have 64 MB of Flashable ROM.

The 610 series will use a transflective screen at the Pocket PC standard resolution, 240 by 320 pixels. These models will also include both a CompactFlash Type II slot and a SD/MMC slot, giving them multiple options for removable memory cards.

Pocket Loox 610 The 610 series models will be 5.8 inches long, 3.1 inches wide, and 0.7 inches thick (147.5 x 78 x 18.2 mm). The dual-wireless model will weigh 7.2 ounces (205 g) while the Bluetooth-only one will be 6.9 ounces (197g).

Wi-Fi draws a great deal of power and these Pocket PCs will sport a 1500 mAh swappable battery. An optional 3000 mAh one will also be available.

They are expected to be released in November. While there is no definite word on whether these will be available in this country, the FCC gave its approval for a U.S. release earlier this month, so it seem likely.
