Meet the Windows 7 Handset F-07C, DoCoMo brings back the Windows Pocket PC

Meet the Windows 7 Handset F-07C, DoCoMo brings back the Windows Pocket PC
 
 

Carrier NTT DoCoMo unveiled their massive phone line-up today for Japan. Among them the Windows 7 Handset stands out in an odd way. This not a Windows Phone, it literally runs Windows. To be exact it runs Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit Japanese edition). The Handset F-07C is supposed to be the new world's smallest Windows 7 PC. About 7 years ago OQO popularized the concept of a Windows Pocket PC, but it never became mainstream.

The new Windows 7 Handset F-07C runs on an Intel Atom CPU with 1.2Ghz, 1GB RAM and 32GB SSD. The device measures 125x61x19.8mm and weighs 218g. It sports a 4-inch screen with 600x1,024px resolution and two cameras. It also is a phone and you get 600 hours of stand-by on 3G and 370 min. talktime. There is no keyboard as far as I can see from the specifications and photo. The lack of a hardware keyboard makes this Windows 7 device not really usable in my mind. The cradle has a USB port. I assume you can connect a keyboard there. The cradle also supports HDMI.

I am pretty sure that the Windows 7 Handset F-07C will only find a some fans, way fewer though than the discontinued OQO.

The Windows 7 Pocket PC is made by Fujitsu. See also the NTT DoCoMo site. First seen on ITWorld.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
