Fujitsu's Biblo Loox Specs
Fujitsu announced way back at the end of September that
they would be supporting the Crusoe line of processors with two sub-notebooks,
the FMV Biblo Loox T (FMVLT553W3) and the FMV Biblo Loox S
While Sony seems to have beaten them to the punch with the
Crusoe-powered VAIO series (which will be available in North America) the Biblo Loox are looking kinna cool
in their own light. The 3/4 high LCD screen seems like a new
trend in portable design.
The copyrights for the Biblo Loox models belong to Fujitsu Limited.
|The Loox S has slightly better power consumption of the two,
but also is the smallest and least equipped.
||The Loox T is the larger and more powerful of the two Crusoe powered
| Looks like that IBM button mouse made it into
these little guys.
FireWire is good to see, we've tested a few IEEE1394
devices in the past, and that 400Mbit transfer rate makes USB pale
For the most part the specs
that Fujitsu lists for their Biblo Loox S & T are standard, the
clock speed for the TM5600 doesn't seem to jive with previous statements about it's speed
though. The TM5600 is supposed to be a 700Mhz chip, probably just a typo on their part.
Battery life for each
device, with standard sized batter sits at 4 hours or below
. Apparently a large battery
will push that life span toward 7.5-8 hours. Both portable computers will never see
a store's shelf in North America, as they are intended solely for the Japanese market.
If you've been wondering what "LOOX" means this should help, in the original, unedited
(translated) version :)
"LOOX - Coined word. "The LOOK" (you see) + "X"
(infinity / unknown)
" By the fact that the knitting
machine is utilized, the internet "infinity" Anytime and "you look," at
information / possibility, simply anywhere it can do thing,"
With we include the meaning of saying."
The full spec sheets are listed on the next page, as well
as the full press release (it went through an online translator so it's a bit
rough around the edges).
