Is it just me, or does the color of this phone look cream or slightly gold. I even looked at the you tube spot on the 5150 and it looked kinda gold. Just wondering what you guys think.
8150 and 6150; what's the difference? Note the video and camera are underpowered in all i-mate models. Why bother including them if the spec is not up to contemporary standards. This phone is no longer just a PDA, it is a multifunctional convergence device, and YES, GPS has become a consumer crave. Can i-mate afford to ignore it??
to imate people!
when are you guys gonna release the phone? look how bad the comments are here?they are fighting for the size and specs!! are you going to allow these?
common im waiting for the release so i can get a new phone!!!!!!!!
i checked the imate web site, the dimensions are as follow: Size: 94mm x 50mm x 11mm
so i am confused, who should we believe!!!
Well...we seem to have gone from 94mmx50mmx11mm to 118mmx60mmx18mm or about 150% larger than originally reported.
Still not a bad looking phone and it's certainly nice to have a decent screen with a physical keypad. But my wallet's going back in my pocket on this one. Too bad.
Really I've ever waited and hoped to see a mobile phone like this(i-mate 8150).This one will for sure fulfil a part of the kind of mobile I hope to use soon.
Well, if you compare 8150 with 9150, dimensions make sense - 8150 has no flip keypad and thus is thinner... But all this is just useless speculation, better wait until it's released and see for sure...
I just don't belive the sizes 11x50x94 is possible but if i-mate can not market the phone at this size this will be a big big problem for the image of brand.
To Nxsf: In South Africa is going to come as usual at least 1 month late after official release in US, & then anyway it's going to be cheaper to buy from US (check on ebay.com)
"It lacks the good camera feature" - sorry to diss but WTH is wrong with you? It's a PDA hybrid. If you want 1337 uber MP count go buy a camera (or a clue).
To others who don't like that it doesn't have GPS, buy a lanyard and a mini bluetooth GPS dongle or better yet stop being douches walking around staring at your phone LOL.
Meanwhile I'll be happily browsing at 1.5Mbit in VGA, watching some sweet quality streamed video and playing a bucket load of ROMS from all kinds of systems blah blah blah - might even find some time for some calls in all that ;)
It lacks the good camera feature.. anything below 3.2 mega pixel is a real disadvantage. what would the price of this package, the looks is very nice, but the features! will they be enough for the usual high price of imate phones
I would do anything for this beauty, except selling my soul to Satin. I thilk its a Master Piece. Keep up the butt kickin work I-Mate. Its gonna make all the top end PDA and moblie companies a good run for their money---- watch out SE, Nokia and HTC
It has to have a special n unique walkman software? and also 2 or 4 LED light flash just in case you going trecking late night lolzzzzz may be GPS. they can even pustin a hard drive too lolzzzz kiddin about the last one. Guess all this is gonna cost a bomb..............
What the hell are you lot on about? Windows Mobile 6 has Pocket Word and Pocket Excel just like Windows Mobile 5 has. These applications have been improved on Windows Mobile 6 but not much!
I agree a MS word / Exel viewer and editor will be great. GPS ... Greator...Satellite Phone ... Greatest
This is a great phone, but I just would like to see this smartphone version of the WM 6.0 includs Microsoft Word and Excel...Also the Ultimate 8150 should come with GPS integrated, making it the best in the world beside the hp 6945.
i think its d most stylus phone on earth, i really wanna hve dis phone, can somebody plz tell me when it'll be available in INDIA along with its price!!!!!!
