EVERY other review/preview i have read about the I-Mate Ultimate range states that they have a VGA (640 by 480 pixels) touch screen. I am pretty sure that is the case!
Well well well, I just read a preview www.infosync.no, and according to them the phone actually supports 65K on the touch screen QVGA 320 by 240. The rest of the information is almost accurate. I just have to say this, gsmarena is a nice website and i relied on it whenever i needed to change my phone, but false information can give a customer a heart attack, and i guess my fellow phone enthusiasts will agree with me. plus a little suggestion to gsmarena board, crank it up a notch, its time to have some downloads on this website. some themes, ring tones, screen savers etc will make this website absolutely flawless. thanks for reading
i must say even thought these Ultimate series phones may be very functional they look very ugly even for smart phones... except maybe the 7150, a very smart laptop-like design
There are new models announced and these ,,old" ones are still not available.This doesnt look very good for imate.
is this model will ever be available. i started hating it because of the long announce period. wake up i-mate...
I guess I-mate and AirBus has one thing in common, that do not give a date for the final release for A380 superJumbo or Ultimate series
I hate companies who announce their models a year earlier and then keep people waiting.....releasing so called 'spy photos' and other teasers. some go on to be cancelled......nothing more than a marketing ploy
They have updated the site: www.imate.com
Anyone knows the exact launch time worldwide?
To the dude who was 'worried' about the CPU: ARM XScale PXA-270 is the Bulverde and clock is at 520Mhz according to the review at ce4arab.
Color depth is 'only' 16 bit though, not 262K as iMate say.
Judging from the club i-mate site given three posts below the specs have changed. The colour palette is now only 65K instead of 262K. The processor is now XScale instead of IntelBulverde. They may have even cancelled the 7150 Ultimate. It is nowhere to be found on that particular site!
Finally the release of imate ultimate 8150 in the middle-East . i have been waiting since feb 2007 and now it is in market ! hurry up guys...i just hope thats the price could be accessible , not so expensive.
if anyone would love to discus about this new HSDPA , my email is posted
Its very good with good applications & it wil be nice to use and work with windows6.
I need to buy this. when it wil b launched in India. I e provided my mail ID and my number +91 98940 11095
To the guy who says his heart beats faster whenever he looks at this phone can I suggest he look at the stars a bit more often and consider how important such a temporal device is in the scheme of things.
Oh yes...I am delighted that this phone has FM radio. FM is free, fast and friendly when it comes to business news! So many devices have excluded FM eg HTC TyTN II and Nokia E61i which is a huge mistake. So taking all into consideration I will have to go for the i-mate Ultimate 7150 because of the QWERTY and a second phone such as Nokia's N95 8GB because of its rich multimedia features. It is clear that you can't get it all on one device!
Is the phone really out in the Middle East? Has anybody used the phone? Many have said that WM limits colour depth to 65K so how come i-mate managed 262144 colours?? The prospect of VGA resolution on a 2.6 inch display is mouth watering!
I disagree with i-mate in one aspect: it is designed for serious work so why did they use the alpha numeric 12 key system instead of the QWERTY? I-mate attempted to cover all styles with their Ultimate series but they missed out the candy bar QWERTY as seen in phones such as Nokia E61i and Blackberry 8300. Sure they have 7150Ultimate but this is too bulky. Palm Treo 680 and Blackberry 8300 all have similar widths to the i-mate 8150 so they could have easily placed a QWERTY on it.
