I've had my JASJAR a few days now. Also purchased from expansys (Australia). Well constructed, very stable, but two issues - ActiveSync 4.0 is very temperamental and needs a lot of effort to get it to sync compared to my previous iPAQ with ActiveSync 3.8. The design of the USB connection being both power and data connection but not designing a cradle to supply both at once is a conciderable disadvantge.
I originally had the Qtek 9000 on pre-order at Expansys. Then they called me to say that the JasJar were going to be on sale much earlier, so I said why not, since they are functionally indentical.
I have been using it for two days and it has been essentially bug-free...I love it so far. It does everything. The price is about the only thing that would most people away from it though.

i've had I-mate PDA2K earlier, but i sold it because it has lots of bugs and deficiencies...As i've read before, there's a little bit of support from i-mate, if none... i don't know how well is JASJAR compared to the PDA2K, but i still think this one has lots of bugs also... Can anyone tell me the goods n bads?!?!
i av seen da fone ere in india n its mind blowing, at da mo it cost approx rs 54,000 will wait for some time for da price to fall down.!! :-)
Got one a couple of days ago. Remarkably bug free for a new product. Screen flip hinge seems pretty secure. Very heavy for a phone/pda at nearly 300grams, but feels very solidly built. Comes bundled with Skype which works well. Speakers are a bit tinny, and speakerphone feature is a joke unless you are in a really quiet room. 1.3 MB Camera quality is better than most I have tried in other phones/pda's. Keyboard tactile response is good and if you are a 2 finger typist and you can operate virtually all features without needing the stylus. Signal quality of GSM 1800 is poor compared with my normal phone. Tends to drop phone signal for a a while while wifi connects. Phone Ringer volume is way to quiet, even on maximum loudness as it can only play wav files. Conspicuous absence of any data backup utility. Bundled with a pre-release version of ActiveSync 4.0 (which is requires) which does not support network syncronisation.
I don't expect it's bug free but I hope it won't have some hardware defect... such as overheat....
very good design very good phone
the best phone i have ever seen .
but it like nokia 7710 .
It is a great device, my only comment is the size, it would have been perfect with 12.5mmX 6.5mmX 1.8mm.
alot of flip phones dont have second screen.. the size of this phone needs a bluetooth handsfree so just get one that has caller id!!!!!
1-If i recive a call do i have to open it?
2-Do it have arabic language?
If the cover was closed and you got a call, how would u know who is calling since it has only one screen? Do i have to open the cover everytime i get a call 2 know who is calling me ?? :S
Kool phone. Looks promising + extended battery life. BUT the price (all features unlocked) will definitely stun most buyers. I hope the screen will rotate. Wish the camera was something above 1.3MP....Good phone!
hey According to the specifications it seems like a gr8 PDA. I had the PDA I-mate II for 8 month then i sold it and got the Nokia 9500... Nokia is gr8 and all but a little slow... The JASJAR has a faster processor and larger memory + it combines a touch screen and a full keyboard (2 in one )... So i am thinking of selling my Communicator 9500 and getting the New I-Mate JASJAR. Does anyone know when will the I-mate JASJAR will be available in lebanon and at what price? If some1 has used the new I-mate JASJAR plz give me ur opinion on it and what r ur comments thenk u :)
so after waiting a lot, a model came from imate and looks like a cathrene zita jones
wish to get one freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Perhaps u should go thru what jeff has 2 say about this phone. O2 & i-mate r prone 2 these niggles/hassels. Wish Nokia came out with something better than the 9500. Pause b4 u decide, did'nt someone once say "a fool & his money r soon parted".
wow, nice design. I want to own one. But i just wondering, does i-mate sell their products in Indonesia. Sure hope so.
Yes, beware of the i-mate brand. They offer no support whatsoever.
Try waiting for O2...
