I have seen the future of mobile phones and it comes from… Dubai!?!? Yes, this phone comes from the up-and-comer I-mate, a company that is set to take the mobile world by storm and promises to be on top for decades to come.
When I first took the Jam out of the box I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking at. Is it a big phone or is it a small computer? Well, in actuality it is both. The i-mate™ JAM is
the smallest Windows Pocket PC available. It includes GPRS for Internet or remote office access, and features Bluetooth, Windows Pocket PC Second Edition, 64MB RAM, an SDIO/MMC slot, a 64k colour transreflective LCD and a built-in 1.3 Mega-Pixel camera. Use for playing MP3s, making voice calls, collecting emails, taking pictures and much more.
The Jam is more than a phone though. As the company explains,
Designed as a small, mid-tier music device with exceptional audio quality, the i-mate™ JAM also allows users to access online music and Internet with the built-in GSM/GPRS mobile phone and the new Windows Media Player 10. The i-mate™ JAM also boasts a 1.3 Mega Pixel camera with full screen viewfinder giving this discreet device great vision to add to the sound.Best price at welectronics.com . The rotating screen also allows you to use the device in the freest possible way.
This tri-band device is Bluetooth compatible and runs on Windows Mobile™ Second Edition software, the most advanced mobile software available. It has a whopping 64MB RAM and ROM and an MMC/SDIO slot to expand memory.

Some final specifics before we start using it and work on the review. The phone has a 1.3 Mega-Pixel camera and a blazing fast Intel Bulverde 416 MHz Processor. The huge 1200 mAh will make sure the phone runs on and on and on. Like the battery the LCD screen is state of the art. The 2.8″ screen has amazing clarity thanks to the crisp 240 x 320 resolution.
Yes, the future of mobile phones is here and it is just the beginning for Windows Mobile and I-mate!
