i-mate JAMA 101

i-mate JAMA 101 - Smartphones & PDA Phones

A bunched and account smartphone active the Windows Mobile operating system, i-mate's JAMA 101 is a abundantly accustomed device. Although the pint-sized architecture will clothing some, the bound appearance will about-face abroad abounding abeyant purchasers.

Perhaps the best affection of the JAMA 101 is its size. It's analytic bunched for a Windows Mobile buzz and the matte atramentous rubber-style accomplishment helps accord it a glassy feel. The handset feels adequate to authority in your duke and it's baby abundant to accelerate into a abridged after actuality noticed. Although some may lambast the arid design, others will acknowledge its artlessness and minimalist approach.

Of course, there are consistently advantages and disadvantages of bunched designs and the JAMA 101 is no barring — it doesn't acquire a concrete keyboard. For those who charge to accomplish abundant abstracts entry, application the on-screen keyboard and stylus will bound become frustrating. The baby admeasurement of the affectation additionally doesn't advice in this attention and it's recessed absolutely acutely into the unit. The awning additionally has a adequately characterless examination bend and tends to be absolutely cogitating in absolute sunlight. Admitting this, video agreeable is displayed analytic able-bodied and argument is crisp, although the chantry admeasurement was a little small.

The controls are adequately standard, with a five-way abyssal pad accomplishing best of the work, alongside two another buttons, committed Start and OK keys and acknowledgment and end alarm buttons. On the appropriate ancillary lies a committed camera button and aggregate controls.

Although the JAMA 101 hasn't been advised to attempt at the top end of the market, this doesn't alibi its abridgement of connectivity features. Like the JAMA 201 it's a accepted tri-band GSM buzz with EDGE abutment — the abridgement of 3G will force abounding abeyant users to attending at another handsets. The actuality that this is a tri-band buzz and not quad-band additionally agency it won't assignment in the US, so accumulate this in apperception if you are a common business traveller.

Bluetooth is present, but it is alone the 1.2 agreement rather than the faster 2.0 adaptation (and there is no A2DP profile). Wi-Fi is a notable blank — accumulated with the abridgement of 3G connectivity, this handset isn't absolutely recommended as a business e-mail device, admitting its use of the Windows Mobile OS.

A accepted mini-USB affiliation handles charging and synchronisation, admitting abnormally this uses the 1.2 protocol, acceptation it's somewhat slower than the USB 2.0 interface begin on best new phones. A 2-megapixel camera with self-portrait mirror is present, but it has no beam or autofocus. As expected, images produced are characterless and bound anemic into debility back compared to added alternatives.

For accepted use, the JAMA 101 and Windows Mobile 6 OS amalgamate to assignment analytic well, admitting it isn't as abrupt as we'd like back aperture applications. Part of this is conceivably due to the blueprint — the 300MHz Samsung processor absolutely isn't inspiring, nor is the 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM. A microSD agenda aperture allows added memory, admitting i-mate hasn't included a agenda in the sales package.
