While i-mate previously announced to launch the Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone Ultimate 6150 and Ultimate 8150 in September, it looks like i-mate axed the in February unveiled Ultimate 5150, Ultimate 7150 and Ultimate 9150.
That's the latest information CoolSmartPhone.com received from Windows Mobile retailer Clove Technology and quotes that Clove Technology "can now confirm, of the original 5 handhelds that were intended, only 2 will remain".
If this becomes true, it turns the i-Mate
Ultimate range into a choice of just two phones, where one - the i-mate 6150 -
already received an FCC approval (but you never know). Anyway, Clove also
confirmed, that the Ultimate 6150 and 8150 are expected to
arrive in October and will carry the
same specification as planned.
CNET Asia contacted i-mate Asia Pacific and the official word is the company
still plans to launch all models, but will do so in a staggered fashion starting
with the 8150 and 6150.
