If you are a frequent visitor of PPCW.Net and you've watched the right hardware box, you might have seen that I've added two new i-mate devices: the i-mate SP3i Smartphone 2003 Second Edition and the i-mate JAM Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003 Second Edition.
Both devices are already ordered and I'm awaiting the shipping confirmation and estimated time of arrivals (ETA) now.
Personally I like both devices a lot and I believe in these breakthrough designs: while the SP3i comes pretty close to a SonyEricsson design with the great Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition features; I'm sure I'm not the only one who prefer the size and weight of the -mate JAM over other comparable Pocket PC Phone Edition devices.
If you want to become notified about availability, I suggest to subscribe for the newsletters. Click here for the SP3i newsletter and here for the JAM newsletter.
 I found out on the ClubImate site that both the SP3 and the SP3i have a miniSD slot.... the only difference seems to be that the SP3 is 900/1800/1900 while there are two versions of the SP3i: one is 900/1800/1900 and the other is 850/1800/1900

Was looking at the shopping site. And in the SP3i Feature details, under section "GSM/GPRS Functional Block" section, I noticed that even though it states the phone is TriBand, all the four bands are listed? Does this mean the SPi can be ordered as American (850) or European models (900)?

Hi Arne I already created an account @ppcw-net shop for buying the I-mate Jam. I hope the product stays in the permanent basket till checkout. Do you now already anything about the price, will it be more or less the same as for T-mobile MDA Compact (490 â‚¬ I think) ? For orders outside of EU (eg Norway, Switzerland) Is the VAT being deducted? Cheers Rainer

 The initial versions I will go with (for both, the SP3i and the JAM) is the "European" 900 MHz version. However, if there is an increase interest for the N.-American 850 MHz version, please let me know (as a reply to this comment).  The product should stay in the basket - however, I'm not sure because it is a combination of cookies and your account. Regarding the price I will use a typical marketing term: "it will be a competitive price"... ;-) For sure all order from outside the EU are without VAT!

I'm mostly interested in the i-mate SP3i product. Let's see who comes first, you or the detailer i usually buy here in Italy. Have you ever delivered to Italy? How many days were necessary for the delivery to accomplish well?
Excuse me for my poor and basic english. Thanks in advance.

 Ciao Ernesto, my country fellow which is the detailer you mentioned in your previous post? It would be nice to know, because I'm Italian as well
