A Week Full of Mobile Devices

A Week Full of Mobile Devices
This must be the "mobile devices goodness week". On Friday morning got two courier parcels, one with my Telecom New Zealand Apache Pocket PC Phone Edition and the second with my i-mate Jasjar Pocket PC Phone Edition.

Both devices run the new Windows Mobile 5.0 OS and come with wireless bonanza:

  • TNZ Apache: CDMA EV-DO for fast cellular data (average of 600kbps on Telecom NZ network), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a cool sliding keyboard.
  • i-mate Jasjar: UMTS for fast cellular data (average of 250kbps on i-mate K-Jam and the i-mate SP5 (pictured), both running Windows Mobile 5.0.

    The i-mate K-Jam is a Pocket PC Phone Edition, with a sliding keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EDGE. A little bit of a shame though... EDGE is quite popular in the USA and it's kind of a 2.75G cellular data. I've used EDGE before and it's nice and fast, with averages of 150kbps where I tested it (San Diego and Los Angeles). But in New Zealand the fallback for UMTS is GPRS.

    The i-mate SP5 is a Smartphone. Comes in a candybar design, and the most incredible features are the QVGA (240x320 pixels) screen, and built-in Wi-Fi. It connects to GPRS for cellular data. I am right now trying to install a Exchange Server certificate on this device, so let's see how it goes (not as easy as in the Pocket PC).

    Reviews of these two with pictures will be coming out soon.
