I-mate Please Fix Your Skype Install
As posted before this week we had four different Windows Mobile 5.0 devices arriving here: i-mate Jasjar, i-mate SP5, i-mate K-Jam, Telecom New Zealand Apache.

The i-mate Pocket PC devices come with "value-added" software pre-installed, including CA Antivirus and Skype for Pocket PC.

When I tried Skype with the original ROM version something strange happened: none of my contacts were showing. The list was empty and the "You have no contacts" was showing.

Following the advice of a fellow MVP (Steve "fyiguy Hughes from I removed the pre-installed Skype client, then downloaded the latest Skype client for Pocket PC and manually copied the .cab file to my device.

I then installed this new version (simply find the .cab file on File Explorer and tap on it to install) and all is working fine!

Please, i-mate, make sure you update the Skype version you are distributing, because the one in current ROM is not working!

FYI, the ROM on my i-mate Jasjar is 1.13.53 WWE, ExtROM 1.13.137 WWE. On the i-mate K-Jam I have ROM and ExtROM
