First Look: I-Mate JAM Pocket PC Listen to this article


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 . 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.
