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

Travel back to 2003/2004: OQO and Tigit Windows XP Pocket PCs were the newest gadget dope. NTT DoCoMo thinks it is time for a comeback of 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.
