GPS, VGA screen, Win mobile 6, Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-fi, 3MP Cam, Qwerty.. All these in one phone? I like to say its not so bulky for all those features. HTC X7500 Advantage has almost similar features.. but that one we can call bulky and heavy.
I suggest if ur not goin for this then check out ETEN X800.
I'm only worried about the delay of the release date.
It seems to be a great device. Is there also a VGA/XGA support for external PC monitors via VGA cable, not only for PAL NTSC with RGB Cable?
Thanks for explaining to me about the Q4 2007 release concept. I feel much more assured now, especially taken in consideration the positive release progress of the first patch of i-mate Ultimate series back in February.
On a more serious note, I'm truly looking forward to 9502's release because it offers the 'missing' VGA display in HTC TyTN II. However, the difference is that TyTN II is already available and i-mate has disappointed us nothing less with the initially announced Ultimate models, which may never see daylight because eight months later they have became 'could be good ideas' from 'would be good ideas'. I seriously hope 9502 does not go down the same path but the odd is against me.
I think it's one of the most complete and most powerful mobile device. Hope it will come to Asia-Pacific soon!
Just a bit torn between awaiting for this or buy a HTC TyTN II now...
The only thing I am disappointed about this phone is the lack of FM-Radio... I've found the radio on my Nokia N76 quite useful lately.
For all of you who are unsure about the product details, just go directly to the I-Mate website, they have a full product data sheet PDF you can download.
yes we are in the 4q 0f 2007. but if you think about what that means, it will be somewhere around the 4q 0f 2007. it doesn't literally mean that it will be released at the beginning of the 4q.
I like dat phone, but I'll be honest with you guys this I-mate phone is T-mobile USA SIDEKICK III, IV, & the LX design.
I mate wake up and get your own designs
"Standard battery, Li-Po 1620 mAh
Stand-by Up to 180 h
Talk time Up to 4 h 20 min"
There is smth terribly wrong in the above specification. Either the battery spec is wrong, gsmarena can't calulate the stand by time, or windows media player 6 sucks up battery like a sega gamegear :)
i've read that this phone will come out q4 of 2007. so that means, that is preeeetty soon. im thinking about this or the n95.
The magic is commiming back! and for my friend who thinks its incomplete, maybe you should look else where, i mate is not your cup of tea
Too big, too heavy and bulky like brick and its design is really ugly. I still prefer HP, HTC and O2 designs.
I know i-mate will change the features in future like 262K to 65K
like Ultimate 6150.
& 3 MP to 2 MP.
This PDA is just a PROTOTYPE.
& how knows really when it will release?
i-mate is the best terrible company in 2007.(Wins Best Terrible Awards)
This is a great phone! the problem is the battery life (due to the high quality screen) I hope there will be a solution to this
To all of you complaining about the CPU -- how do you know it's slow? What are your comparisons besides the clock frequency?
The Qualcomm MSM7200 CPU has more than one core, sporting muliple processor engines that work together to enhance every feature on this phone. It's very similar to that of the Nokia E90/N95 - 3D acceleration, ARM 11 combined with multiple DSP's & ARM 9 processors. The Qualcomm chipset can support full H.264 decoding, 30FPS video recording @ VGA resolution, real-time TV, GPS, 6+ Megapixel Camera capable. It is superior to most phones on the market, and it arguably performs quicker than some higher mhz intel CPU's used in phones because it's an all-in-one unit, everything is integrated, no seperate graphics chipsets to slow things down and increase costs.
In my opinion, this looks to be a VERY promising phone - a VGA resolution screen is becoming a MUST for today's phone applications, and this unit certainly has the hardware to support everything on today's software market.
...now let's just see if I-mate changes their mind, again, and again, and again again again again.... i don't know about you guys, but i think they're showcasing yet another phone that looks too good to be true. hopefully they prove me wrong.
