to Sean :
Check the processor on the Mio A720. Thats an old , slow processor.
hi, i bought the Ultimate 8150 and its a great PDA but like all i am facing the same problem with the battery and with charging my Device from the charger,i have to connect it to my Latop to charge the battery,there is any solution to fix that problem,please inform me guys, ciao
I bought this device, and I knew for this problem with battery. But, this is definitely software problem, not hardware. I had lot of devices (WM2003-wm6) and this type of battery can't be so bad on this processor. This is the same machine like qtek 9000, and I had battery with lot of usage (talk and surf)for minimum 2 days. Well, i-mate promissed that during february will be battery patch.
Very good device, but problem is with keyboard, there is no keyboard drivers, and there is T9 installed and I can't remove this (if I remove T9 there is no letters, only numbers) :-) Hope it will be fixed in next WM6 (this is very buggy).
Well, only software seems to be bad, hardware is very good.
Be careful,don't do the same mistake , i did buy the 8150 Ultimate for 1100$ in Lebanon , i didn't ask myself why they didn't put the standby time and talk time for the batterie, you can talk for just 40 minutes and standby time 10hours only without talking . and other thing the divice don't turn off the light, you have to turn off the device for saving batt..
I will buy this device, but I am interested if somebody wants to tell me quality of hardware... does it have some cranky places or something (quality of joystick, keyboard)? thank you very much
Leb, let me know if you find one. Same situation here. Here is what I found. I am in the US and using ATT.
X800 glofiish no good, too many driver problems
HTC, just too many driver problems and I have an HTC tilt right now and it is sloow, real slow, not worth it
I am thinking about the MITAC MIO A720, read some bad some good, but everything compared nothing too bad overall, I just with it had hsdpa support, but for me it reall has everything else I need and is not too expensive, if cound it cheap at plemix and a few other places, I will look in here to see if you ahve any suggestions
Please someone I need your help!
I have been going through this website almost everyday for hours trying to find the perfect phone- I can't seem to!!
But so far, i find the features and desging of this specific phone (because of it having a keypad and touchscreen) excellent, but whats important is the performance.
If anyone is out there that can tell me how the performace of it is (eg. if it freezes, etc) let me know. If it does I guess its a Blackberry im getting..
I think that you cant change language, because I have italian JAMin and I cant change it to english!
help me how to change the language setting from arabic to english pls
Nice looking phone. features are great. If only this phone can deliver the features. Freezes regularly. calls from the phone buttons sometimes dont work. Lousy lousy battery life. Please Please if you want to avoid the frustrations this phone will cause stay away. All my friends including myself have returned it after a day r two. Shame Imate you guys dont seem to learn that you should sell your phones before removing the bugs in them. You should learn from HTC they are making great and high quality phones. I rank it as a 2 out of 10. The same goes for the 6150. I returned that last week.
I just created a site for the Ultimates:
It's only a scratch with news, wiki and forum !
Please join and contribute. I will select some admins at the beginning of the next year.
Also please send in suggestions !
Ever since i-mate broke ties with HTC and started re-branding chinese phones, its been going downhill. I have tried a few jama's, and they all suck. I wont buy this phone until i get to see others comment on it first.
Very bad PDA Not recomended Igot the phone one week ago alot of proplomes.
Does anyone know if this ones work with Microsoft Voice Command unlike all the new HTC devices out there? If it does I'm sold!
this phone is outdated already, how much more if it will be released in a month max as pcman says! dude whats the deal with all your exclamation points!! are you mad or something!! The other poster was just giving people here an option aside from the 8150! I think the asus p750 will be released before the 8150. No thanks IMATE, you guys lagged on this one.. You will have the same outcome as the BenQ P50, good idea, but took too long to release..
Stop writing bulshits, u E-ten and so on fans!! 8150 and 6150 ARE avaiable already one month! 8502 and 9502 are on the go!(max 1month until their market release!)
I'm not sure about the microSDHC! No official info for now! Coolsmartphone.com's 8150/6150 review is not mantioned the SDHC support! They should have it!
i-Mate has confirmed a delay in the release of this phone until December at the earliest. It's habit of showing these phones and claiming they'll be available soon for shipping is getting very old. Time to deliver on the product or get out! Look at the E-TEN X800 for specs similar to this device. Who knows what problems this phone will have when it first gets released...
