No, the so called, i-mate K-Jar isn't that new anymore - have we seen it last year already, when TechFaith Wireless previewed it the first time, but it looks like i-mate (which has licensed the reference design) comes closer to a release date now.
The K-KJar is a HTC Universal look-alike Windows Mobile 5-based Pocket PC Phone Edition, featuring a thumb-keyboard and swivel touchscreen which lets you use the device in traditional PDA-mode or like a sub-notebook. Unlike the HTC Universal, the K-Jar also features an external LCD display for caller information, however this display doesn't makes use of Windows Mobile's auxiliary display functionality.
Other features are triband GSM/GPRS (neither support of GSM 850 MHz nor EDGE), Bluetooth 1.2 and W-LAN b.

Built-in memory is expected to be 128 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM which can be extended through miniSD memory cards. With the TI OMAP 730 CPU at 200 MHz, the device seems to be a little bit underpowered. The touchscreen supports QVGA and the camera is 2 megapixel:

Since the K-JAR just appeared at the FCC and i-mate hasn't officially announced it yet, prices and release dates are unknown so far. However, an official announcement can be expected during the 3GSM Congress next month.
