i-mate 8502- VGA 2m colours, no gps and fm, overall a great device
@PcMan: I do not think that this phone has the FM radio. I am going through the specifications as downloaded from www.imate.com site.
hello everyone.pls advise if the internal GPS receiver is compatible with Garmin Mobile XT software? any advise is appreciated.
Any info about the screen? In the specs is written QVGA, but I think it should be VGA just as the others Ultimates.. Just the perfect phone if it's with a VGA screen! I rly love this model(can't choose between this one and the 8150..:P)
It has FM Radio! Also it will be released in December in the USA and some others.. Soon after this avail. online all over the World!;]
Ultimate series-the best! Real UMpC in defaut phone sizes/weight!
I just made a little comparison about all the devides w/ 3.5G/EDGE/WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS.
For me, based upon the tech specifications, it seems, that I-mate 8502 is the best pick.
Does anyone know, when will it be available?Will it be this year? (i guess, it should come out before xmas...)
I agree, please ad an FM Tuner & a desk top charger / stand like the sony ericsson P1i and imate will have a leading mobile / PDA business solution.
Great work i-mate.
Just FM please!! Add FM TUNER!!! To make for it's name!! "Ultimate"
I AM GETTING THIS.
For kK6H and all the ppl don't know!:
8150 is released!
6150 is released!
8502 and 9502 will be relased!(they are newer models.. no proof is needed! it's obvious!)
Tnx Imate! amazing phones! 8150 or this one is mine as soon as posible!
The Ultimate 8502 has the best keyboard we have ever used on a mobile phone, ever. Nothing else comes close. Remember when you used to jump on your parents' bed? That's the feeling your fingers will have typing on the springy, gripping keys on the 8502's QWERTY keyboard. The pyramid shape, the soft-touch paint, the great travel and the sharp click all helped this keyboard exceed our expectations.
Photos don't do the phone justice. In pictures, it may resemble the recent HP iPaq releases, especially the iPaq 900 series, but it feels much more solid, and the keyboard and screen outclass HP's phone by a wide margin.

Plus all the great stuff, provided form the ultimate line.. My next phone! Just the best-of-the-rest!(or 8150 if this one is released too late from now)
I think imate is serious this time about the release. They have completely revamped their website and two additional ultimate sets are also being released, the 6150 and 8150. Check it out at www.imate.com.
Looks good. But, is it's bite just as good as it's bark? I'm pretty sure it doesn't support Half Rate Speech. We'll be getting plenty of dropped calls.
amazing phone, have been waiting for a vertical display phone with keyboard & decent specs for a long time now.. thx imate, but please release it ASAP
Like the 8150 big announcement but no launch... imate credibility seems to go lower every month
very nice looking phone, simple and function are really good. a must for businessman.
