Sometimes taking on an impossibly small form factor works in your favour: take the MobiBLU Cube, for example, where the tiny MP3 player put that company on the map. But sometimes going too small can hurt the product’s functionality and usability, and I fear this may (or may not, we’ll just have to wait and see) be the case today.
The latest Pocket Loox PDAs from Fujitsu Siemens — the N100 and N110 — are so tiny, in fact, that they’re being touted as the lightest and smallest in the whole world.
Running on Windows Mobile 5, the N100 series are powered by a Samsung 300 MHz processor, and come equipped with 64MB of RAM. While the higher-end N110 sports 2 gigs of on-board flash memory, the more entry-level N100 ships with a 1GB mini SD card instead. Both feature a 2.8-inch, 65k color display with a 240 x 320 resolution. As a pocket GPS device, these newest Loox devices come preinstalled with Navigon MobileNavigator 6 software and boast the SiRFStar III chipset.
The Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox N100 and N110 are destined for European store shelves next month, with prices starting at £206 ($380).
