On Monday I was writing about the i-mate JAM (HTC Magician) limited edition launch in Australia and I wasn't sure if it will be released worldwide too. However, as Carrier Devices/i-mate confirmed today, the limited edition will be released world wide also.
i-mate, the specialists in Microsoft Windows Mobile devices and supportive applications, are pleased to introduce their new limited edition i-mate JAM. Following on from the world wide success of the original, this limited edition device comes with all the advanced Windows Mobile features of the i-mate JAM, plus twice as much built in memory at 128MB RAM, Computer Associates eTrust Antivirus software, Skype internet telephony software, global warranty and exclusive access to the club i-mate web portal. The new i-mate JAM retains the same striking minimalistic design and compact dimensions of the original but comes in a distinguished charcoal color. The original i-mate JAM will continue to be available for those who want the award winning standard feature set in a sleek silver color.
Speaking on Monday in Dubai about his high expectations of the new charcoal colored i-mate JAM, Founder and Chief Executive of i-mate, Mr. Jim Morrison said, "I've no doubt this beefed up new i-mate JAM will continue the phenomenal success of the original. It really is the perfect combination of beauty & brains. This superb product will be the mark of distinction of the discerning mobile phone buyer."
Designed to deliver the ability to keep in touch & be entertained on the move without the need for multiple devices, this impressive Microsoft Windows Mobile powered mobile delivers 10 devices in the 1 compact unit, including a PC, 1.3 megapixel camera/video, gaming console, and an MP3 player just to name a few. You can access much of the same information on your desktop PC such as emails, the internet & important documents whilst on the go. It has a sharp 64k touch sensitive screen, MMS & Bluetooth support, Wi-Fi capability via an SD Wi-Fi card, as well complete memory expansion via the SD card slot and a full range of applications including Pocket Outlook, Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, Pocket Word & Pocket Excel. The matte charcoal body of the new i-mate JAM sports the metallic sheen and cool touch of anodized aluminum.
Thanks to its pioneering partnerships with world leading value added service providers, i-mate offers an impressive array of applications as standard on the new i-mate JAM, including CA eTrust Antivirus software to help deliver peace of mind, and Skype (VoIP) to make reduced call costs a reality. These same applications will be available for purchase separately by all i-mate device owners at club i-mate.
"Today's astute mobile phone buyer demands more than just a phone. Our superior range of devices combined with our advanced software and extensive global support delivers unbeatable value," added Mr. Morrison.
The elite web portal exclusively for i-mate owners, www.clubimate.com, provides 24/7 technical advice, support and value added services such as free hosted Microsoft Exchange e-mail, exclusive i-mate interactive games and upgrade patches for download. Every i-mate device comes fully backed by a global warranty. A limited quantity of the new charcoal i-mate JAM will be available online or in stores, from mid August 2005.
