if they think they wil keep GPS 4 the next genration, that wil be cheep thinking.and i dont know why it was announsed moor than 5 monthes ahed.Whats your point I MATE?
id rather wait 4 the Eten X800. it have every thing.
Absolutly awesome. The only thing though is it doesn't have GPS. I would definately purchase one except I think I will wait for it or some other device to come with a built in GPS as well. Very sad that this didn't come with it. Still, a great potential product.
I was very disappointed by Jasjar: which has never worked properly and that recently, after one and half year use, experienced serious problems, making sudden and imprdictable reboot. Another very irritsting feature is that I-mate web page was set as default web page and you were not allowed to chose another one. I hope this will be fixed with Ultimate.
Whether it's a prelude, interlude or even postlude I-mate should give the public what the public wants and that is clearly GPS in convergence devices. Note that the 7150 is no longer just a PDA. It is a convergence device otherwise why did they bother placing a camcorder and stills camera in it. Even these inclusions are not up to contemporary spec. If I-mate want to sell their phones in commercial quantities they should meditate on what is current. The N95 is selling staggeringly well.
Clearly if Imate does not include a gps into this phone is bcause this ultimate model is the prelude to the next generation of ultimate PDA-pocketPC-Phone with GPS.
Any manufacturer of high-end phones excluding GPS better think twice. Look at the N95 user opinions forum: over 300 pages. The inclusion of GPS in that phone has generated so many sales.
Does it hv ne External Display..??..N whn u guys gonna launch this phone...??.Eagerly waitin to see it into my hands...
its a pretty neat phone...looks to be sleek n all but what abt the calls how r v gonna answer calls when v r usin the phone pretty odd to hold it... the screen could be a little to the edges for a wider screen experience... bottom line neat phone...
does it have the usual pocket msn....i am more interested in knowing if it has msn messenger, goona buy it sure if it has one....i am more than satisfied with the performance of my imate jasjar...can someone please tell me...thanks
From the photograph it seems that the screen has 4:3 dimensions as opposed to the widescreen of Nokia's E-90. I think i-mate should stay current and put a minimum of 3MP on the camera and certainly glorious VGA(30fps) video recording. We take our phones everywhere and so we need to be able to take reasonable photos of printable quality. Of course a true camera is better but you don't take it everywhere. I will be buying this phone because I want to have an intimate experience with WM6. I will also buy Nokia's E90 to experience the improvements in s60.
Hope 3MP Camera & GPS will be included at the time of final release.
This is pure mini laptop, superb in its class, but it is not a phone. Anyone buying this must know he will still need another phone for general use, as far as SMS and thing like that, it may be possible to use a Bluetooth fro phone calls while this device si in the bas somewhere near, but get real the battery on Window mobile won't even live for a whole day.
So this is a mini laptop/PDA, if you want mini laptop/PDA/phone/camera/GPS/MP3player/ go for nokia E90.
is there any one who can tell me the price of this sexy device and also one thing more is this device has one display or two display.
What is the device weight, likely price and likely date of release (If it is ever going to be released, that is)?
some people opt of a larger screen for readability combined with ease of use. would anyone disagree if i say 99.99% of pda users prefer portrait orientation rather landscape? you switch to landscape, most likely, by default only when playing a game. with 110mm x 74mm flip top screen it doesn't seem handy using the wide vga portrait screen, i mean you always have to flip open the cover to avail of the wide vga screen. on portrait orientation the keyboard becomes unhandy, almost useless. with landscape screen and the keyboard always open i bet anyone would struggle using the stylus while holding the device safe on his palm. nice if you are always on a table nearby, great for showing off, while on a meeting with your CEO, but most of mobile users are always on the go, hardly know of anyone carrying along a small table to use with his expensive device.
