One of the advanced

allows users to present Microsoft Office applications and videos directly from
their Ultimate device onto a secondary display. Business users will find this
feature extremely beneficial as they no longer need to take a laptop into a
meeting to do a presentation, but can present directly from the Ultimate device.
Ultimate devices push the boundaries between laptop computers and the handheld
Marianne Roling, EMEA Director, Mobile Communications Business,
Microsoft says "The partnership with Microsoft and i-mate has seen the
successful growth of its portfolio over the last four years. i-mate's Ultimate
range will bring Windows Mobile 6 to the hands of its customers and add further
value to i-mate's impressive record of innovation on our platform. The Ultimate
range will add a whole new category of devices that bridge the gap between
entertainment and productivity options for business and consumer users."
"The mobile industry is starting to develop an approach whereby
customers are able to select a device based on their personal requirements - not
because they are restricted by available options. The i-mate Ultimate products,
along with further additions to our already impressive product portfolio are
designed with the customer in mind, be that a consumer or a business user. We
believe in delivering devices that cater to our client and customer demands,"
