Although 3GSM has already given us some exciting photos of devices running WM6, some of the specs and details have been pretty thin. Now that we've had a moment to breathe, let's take a close look at what i-mate has dropped on us ("us" being "the world," as i-mate's history of shipping devices in the United States isn't what I'd like it to be).
Details after the jump.
i-mate Ultimate Line
We'll start with Engadget Mobile, who points out that the i-mate ultimate line is actually going to consist of 5 completely different form factors.
Meanwhile, PocketPCthought's post about the 5 ultimate phones points out an even cooler nugget for you Vista owners:
PocketPCthougts also suggests we will see these monsters in the stores in June.
...What about specs on this Ultimate line? PCMag has the specs, and they are the very definition of overkill:
The even better news from PCMag, in my humble opinion, is that these phones fully support the "Advanced Wireless Services" band that T-Mobile gobbled up last year - raising my hopes not only that we'll see these monsters in the United States but also that my own wireless carrier will support them. Oh, and i-mate is "keen to support the US Market."
The JAQ4 is no slouch, either. With a shape that says "I'm Standard Edition" but is actually the Professional Edition and a scroll wheel (it's the little things that get me), I can appreciate this little guy.
The specs are definitely not in the "Ultimate" category, but they ain't bad. Hello GPS! Goodbye 3G Data!
