United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, August 29 - 2006 @ 12:40

The technology allows for download speeds approaching those of broadband connection in your home and/or office while on the go. The i-mate™ SP JAS and the i-mate™ JASJAM are the first i-mate devices to feature thumb-wheels for easy menu navigation, allowing users to quickly scroll within their inbox or simply move from one function to the next.

i-mate has also extended its Arabic offering to its Middle Eastern customer base by allowing almost all applications on both the i-mate SP JAS and i-mate JASJAM to be run in Arabic.

The i-mate™ SP JAS offers Microsoft Windows Mobile® functionality in a stylish and slim mobile phone format, while the i-mate™ JASJAM is a fully-featured Microsoft Windows® Pocket PC, or handheld computer phone and one of the first products in the world to offer 3G (WCDMA), EDGE and WiFi global roaming access.

The i-mate™ JASJAM also features a 400 MHz processor for blistering high speed data access and quad band support for global connectivity which will make it the device of choice for business travelers with a need for constant and fast connectivity.

Jack Craine, Global Sales Director at i-mate says, “A recent study by Canalys confirmed that the market for mobile office functionality is rapidly increasing. We have developed an extended range of high-speed, multi-functional i-mate™ models to address this need, especially for small and medium sized organizations and large corporates across the Middle East region.”

Pre-loaded with Microsoft® Exchange Direct Push technology, both devices provide instant access to emails, allowing users to open and view Microsoft® Office attachments in Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® Mobile in both English and Arabic.

Craine continues, “Microsoft Windows Mobile® phones are now the preferred solution for business users to access data on the move. Businesses are opting for handheld wireless devices for anytime, anywhere access. The i-mate™ JASJAM and the i-mate™ SP JAS take on-the-go productivity to a new level of speed and set the benchmark for mobile wireless computing.”

The i-mate™ JASJAM provides users with a range of dynamic flexible data input methods including i-mate’s scroll wheel, a touch-screen display and slider QWERTY keyboard. It features a 2.0 megapixel camera with macro mode. Both devices also feature a second lens for simple video conferencing connectivity.

For mobile business professionals who prefer a more conventional mobile phone format, the i-mate™ SP JAS combines the ergonomics of a stylish and slim device with the full power of Windows Mobile® functionality.

A fun new addition to the i-mate JASJAM enables users to send personalized handwritten notes and emoticons through SMS text messages in both English and Arabic. Users can also send and receive emoticons on their i-mate SP JAS.

Featuring a bright, large, full-colour screen for easily viewing Microsoft® Office documents and email attachments, the i-mate™ SP JAS is beautifully crafted with bold lines and a black and grey casing that combines both smooth and matte surfaces for extra grip.
