i-mate JAMA 101 & 201
Smartphone specialist i-mate has announced two new JAMA devices, the 101 and the 201. The former is the more advanced of the two, if only because it uses Windows Mobile 6 Professional. It also has a 2.4-inch touchscreen however, and features Bluetooth and a two-megapixel autofocus camera with flash. 128MB of ROM can be supplemented by microSD cards. Limitations comes mainly in the form of a 300MHz Samsung processor, and the lack of Wi-Fi or UMTS, instead having just tri-band GSM/EDGE. Talk time is four hours with a standby of slightly more than six days.
The JAMA 201 is essentially identical to the 101 in terms of most specifications, but WM6 Professional is replaced with Standard, and the touchscreen is replaced with a linear 2.5-inch LCD. Control is handled through a QWERTY keyboard. Prices and regions have yet to be published for either JAMA. [via the::unwired]
