i-mate vows "revolutionary" phone in February

i-mate MWC Teaser

Smartphone maker i-mate today sparked attention in its lineup by claiming that it will use Mobile World Congress next month to introduce a "revolutionary mobile device" in its lineup. The company has little extra information in its teaser but suggests it will be "unlike anything else." The company has historically produced only Windows Mobile smartphones, however, and so may use Windows Mobile 6.5 and its improved interface as a centerpiece of the design.

The news infers a significant revival for i-mate, which has remained largely quiet with new hardware introductions since introducing its Ultimate line in 2007. It has continued to struggle against larger rivals in the Windows Mobile space such as HTC and Samsung. Most of i-mate's handsets are available in the US, but only as full-price unlocked devices.
