i-mate JAMA Phone

Cellphone maker i-mate has veered away from its traditionally large smartphones with the introduction of the new JAMA, its most compact handset to date. The bar phone design is relatively thin at 0.6 inches and avoids a more unwieldy keypad by using a 2.4-inch touchscreen that handles both dialing as well as basic editing and messaging in the included Office Mobile suite. i-mate also takes care to support media capture and playback through a 2-megapixel camera and microSD storage for MP3/WAV/WMA songs as well as 3GPP, MPEG-4, and Windows Media videos.

The initial market for the JAMA is expected to be limited, with the phone still using Windows Mobile 5 and supporting only dual-band, 900/1800MHz GSM phone calls; it should be available by the end of the month in the Middle East and the company's other core areas. Pricing has not been listed but should change based on the country and subscription.
