Fujitsu recently showed off a very interesting smartphone called the Loox F-07C: a dual-mode phone that runs on an Intel ATOM processor. For people who require the functionality of a very tiny Windows 7 tablet and a smartphone but don’t want to lug two devices around, the F-07C might what they’ve been looking for.
The F-07C can be booted as a tablet running Windows 7 or as a smartphone running the Symbian operating system. It packs a 4″ (600 x 1024) display, a 1.2GHz ATOM CPU, a 5megapixel rear camera, a 0.32megapixel front facing camera, 1GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD for internal storage, WiFi, and Bluetooth.
No word on battery life, which should be the main question since it is running a pretty powerful processor and Windows 7 after all but it’s no surprise if it won’t get you through the day without the aid of a charger. But it’s good to know that with the usage of a dock, the phone can be turned into a mini computer, with HDMI, USB and Ethernet ports.
With smartphones being able to do most of the important functions of a desktop computer while on the go, it doesn’t make sense to have a dual-operating system phone – but it’s good to know that such an option exists if we ever need one.
