i think it is time imate bows out in grace and steps out of the phone race. A shame to have started so strong and today to represent bad quality phones and short battery life.
i dont think i-mate is able to launch this product,before also if u can see they simply cancelled so many products before its launch.actually the success behind i-mate is HTC company,and they are not colabrating with i-mate now.and without HTC i think i-mate is just looked like a handicap company
Well,actually it looks cool but price is TOTALLY not right (preorder at expansys: 600€+ :0)
You can see this product on youtube, but very few viewers though. This shows how many people give a damn about the brand.
Own an i-mate at your own peril.
The company is financially unstable.
never by i-mate it has worst support, hell of difficulty to upgrade rom
i-mate should close the factory and save the people atleast
Forget the I-mate brand guys.
They appear to be out of the game.
Anyway just look at their latest offering.
Maybe I-mate should consider putting this one in corn flake packets
With almost no service backup or any Tech support -
Imate needs to sell eggs atleast they can make some in this business money ,instead of selling dirty cheap windows device with no service center,no good devices, nothing but rotten device,and no future product road map,"where Jim uncle "doing what now "hatching eggs" atleats do that periodically"
i saw the demo ... it is water proof upto 60atm and heat proof upoto 150f and more over it has acccelarometer with biometric (the screen is OLED touch sensitive bio metric) it can have upto 10 profiles .. it cost $300 .. .cheap one .. it can be docked to mainframe computer .. see the backside. it can act as security key for ATM and many .... plz read more detail @ http://lukecollison.com/spasticated/img/cover/Dsico_Fool_Cover_Front_web.jpg
I am still using the Imate JasJam. So have needed tech support when i first purchased it and never a problem.
What stuffed Imate up is that HTC stopped making their products and they had to find another maker.Before that they were in top of the world.
I would support them because they are still trying and haven't given up. They lost a few valuable years. But they have tried to reposition themselves with something that no one else is doing and that is waterprrof, dustproof, shock proof windows operating system which is great. So give them credit for fighting and still trying to hang in there.
Does anyone know when this baby will be available for purchase in Dubai or on online website to order???
In February, I-mate says: "The phone will available in the next weeks....".Now, a few month later no 810-f. Anybody knows what`s on? Yes, Support is sleeping...This is the best and fastest way to disgust customers and knock out a product bevor it comes in...
jass dubai, 23 Apr 2009I-Mate wow they still making the phones ,i thought the company is vanished anyway all the bes... moreWell, you better wake your mind a bit at least for a change to know which company exist and which is not, instead of telling everyone how dumb you are lol. how dull brain, you are!
i agee with previous writers regarding i-mates technical support.
be warned - it is almost non existant.
best to look elsewhere for any phone products.
try HTC or apple for starters.
you will be much better off.
Finaly a pda/phone strong enough to survive daily use of an active person. Put it in your jeans without a protection case and no worries when the kid plays a little rough with you when you're just home from work (lost a smartphone once that way). And yes.... to comply to the 810-f standard the parts in this phone are selected on toughness and this means not the most hi res display, camera etc.
When this comes to market I'm defenately going to buy it.
I-Mate wow they still making the phones ,i thought the company is vanished
anyway all the best i-mate
Somewhat different...but does not seems to be durable.Just like a toy.What will be the customer demand?
