to i-mate, today I received a brand new i-mate JAQ3. Made by TechFaith Wireless,
the i-mate JAQ3 is i-mate's second Windows Mobile Pocket PC not manufactured by
Similar to the Palm Treo 750, the i-mate JAQ3 is also a Windows Mobile Pocket PC
with a thumb keyboard bellow the screen. However, unlike the Treo 750, the JAQ3
isn't UMTS enabled but is featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE only but also
supports WiFi 802.11 b/g as well as Bluetooth 1.2 (with A2DP and AVRC support).
The i-mate JAQ3, which features Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU 3.2, was designed with
user preferences in mind - since its full QWERTY keyboard, five navigation
buttons and scroll wheel allow easy navigation and use of services including
E-Mail. Unusual is the the 2.4" color touch screen which is neither portrait nor square but landscape - as we know it from the latest Windows Mobile Smartphones
like the HTC Excalibur/Cavalier and Samsung i320/i600. Last but not least, the devices is also featuring a 2.0 megapixel camera.
Since I've received the device just today, I cannot say too much about all
the rest but I will use it for the next couple of days. Nevertheless, bellow you
can find some photos of the i-mate JAQ3 to get a better idea what the device is
More to come soon. In the meantime feel free to post your questions bellow.
Cheers ~ Arne
