it is very good mobile i prefer the i_mate brand really it has all of the tecnology
DJX, unfortunately for you I am willing to fight my corner. Any comment I make is not superfluous. My aim is for high quality mobile devices to be available to anyone who needs them. I mentioned Palm Treo in an earlier text purely because of the keyboard. They have managed to place a full QWERTY keyboard in a device that is thinner than the I-mate. Why couldn't I-mate give us a QWERTY since the device is for serious work? Incidentally the Palm keyboard is great! Far better than the inferior, inaccurate T9 text entry. Secondly, when it comes to colour screens Windows Mobile are legions behind. Other companies are standing loud and proud presenting devices with 16M colours and there is little you on another planet rejoicing about 256K!!!
You have completely no idea what you're talkin about.
The resolution there means 256K color display (touch screen), not just a vga resolution (640x480)
Most of PDAs on the market right now only have 65k colors (including your lovely treo)and I'm talking about PPC/PDA with touchscreen capability (excluding smartphones etc)
I won't even dare to compare Treo to iMate ultimates series. You should compare your treo to others which are more equal. Such: Sony ericsson p990 or anything cheaper.
Juan, it is you who are blind! If you cannot speak straight and true with civility then don't speak at all. I am talking about a QWERTY keyboard to make fast, extended, accurate texting possible. You are talking about resolution. Two completely separate issues. Let us look at resolution. VGA res was seen over two years ago with the O2 Xda Exec, so there is nothing ground-breaking about i-mate's resolution. Contemporary devices such as Eten's X800 and Toshiba's G900 also have VGA resolutions. The i-mate is meant for serious work. It is FAT enough to fit a QWERTY. They should have done so regardless of the resolution.
Are you blind? Can't you see the size of the screen of this machine and read the resolution of the screen? Is there any phone out there with this resolution? Thats why it has this width! Dumb a###!
Palm makes crappy phones by standards... they couldn't even make use of their own Palm OS!! lol
let me guess you have a treo! so stop posting negative comments about something u haven't seen or use. stick to your Treo Posts in the Palm Section!
Something is seriously wrong! It is irresponsible to announce a phone too far ahead of its release. When a company announces a phone it should have started undergoing testing and the release date should be near; perhaps three months. Yet we have waited over half a year for this device. I-mate will lose sales because of this incompetence. Secondly, this phone is FAT (60mm in width). It could have easily accommodated a full QWERTY keyboard. Just look at Palm Treo's 680 and 750- a mere 58mm in width although each has a full QWERTY.
i'm in love with dis phone...wen is it comming out..geezzz..my heart beats everytime i look @ it....
Coolest phone ever... with windows mobile 6 and 3G>>> what more do you want?? Size is never an issue: only value for money can mean success or disaster... if they keep the price around US$ 600 it will be a Number 1 Hit!
By the way when is this phone going to be available in Singapore or Dubai??
I'll wait forever for this Ultimate machine!
Maahi, viewing the internet in full is a phonae capable called "HTML" enabled, has nothing to do with the connection. The internet connection is always the same but the only different is the speed. That means the phone in question "Imate" ultimate will give you internet access since it works on "EDGE". anymore question u will b charged $2.99.
Does anybody knows if T-Zones will work on this phone. T-Zones are different than T Mobile internet. Is it a must to subscribe to internet. On N95 with T-Zones You can open any website?? Answer Please Anyone. Thanks Maahi from New York
It's never gonna come. OR it is, but with these ugly dimentions, which will take away all the hype, and will lead imate to a disaster
Updated specs on Club iMate:
Size: 118.5mm x 60.5mm x 15.5mm
No mention of weight. Still respectable but not as cutting edge as 11mm thin.
I just looked at a side picture of the 8150 and the ratio of length to width is ~6.9:1, which is closer to 118mm:18mm (6.65:1) than to 94mm:11mm (8.47:1). THough I wish it werent true.
news: i mate will never release this phone!
it is soooooo good that they want to keep this phone forever or perhaps until it will be outdated!
News: I mate will release this phone today!
Hi...does anyone know if this phone will work in African countries???
And stop fooling yourelf.. the 8150 will be no where near 11mm thick.. you can believe that..thats just a sales gimmick by imate..
what do you mean? you seen some of the features on symbian phones? The e90 for instance will eat this alive.. And this phone hasn't even been released yet.. it's taking the path of the benq p50.. good phone, released to the public to late..
this is truly a great phone if imate can release it before end of summer...however beyond that, i think its a lil bit outdated and would offer nothing new esp with the rate other leading brands are coming up with superb quality phones...and finally knowing i mate its not gonna come cheap!!!
poor marketing strategy of imate with its poor timing for release!!! wake up guys!!!
hello, anybody there?
