My faithful Jasjam has lost the ability to handle text recognition or even follow the stylus and it looks like the digitizer is in need of replacing.  (Where does one get a digitizer or have it replaced, for an Imate Jasjam?)   I don't know whether to replace it  but I think it might be about time to purchase a new gaget before the wife spends my money.  What should be my next purchase I wonder, I'd love some suggestions.  My ultimate, (excuse the pun), would probably be one of the following:  the Ultimate 9502, the htc Cruise, the HTC Touch Pro, (In my dreams anyway), the Tytn 2, or the HTC Diamond.     I love the Qwerty keyboard on my jasjam, use it often for Txt messaging and typing in urls so that would be handy.  Would love to spend between $750 - $1000 if possible.  Whats everyones suggestions?  am a school teach so use office mobile a little bit,  and don't even mention iPhone as I'm a WinMo convert.  Suggestions please, plus where to purchase from.

Newt.

Personally I went with this, 2 weeks after the release date it should get here, but if you want something urgent I think the touch cruise is impressive with the latest 6.1 is available for upgrade. My bro has one so has Chaks. But I think with slightly faster processor and a bit more RAM the Touch 3G will be a delicious device.

My jasjam has served me well, and still going strong. I would not have bought a new device if it wasn't for the fact that the jasjam is lack in memory, and with the new things coming out such as youtube player, etc etc I would not have upgraded. There are a couple of tricks to try and fix the jasjam on xda.

This could be one, this could be another. Try reading the WIKI here ... might save you some money before you splash on a new gadget.

Cheers for the reply zocster, have tried those postings but I guess it  is a digitizer I need.  As for the touch, it does appeal having that extra bit of puff, had constant probs trying to run Opera mobile on the jasjam but perservered cause it's so good compared to IE mobile version.   I'm wondering now if I do really need a qwerty keyboard. 
Where, appart from Trademe, would one purchase a smart device like that?  Not really comfortable buying something like that from Vodafone,  to me that seems a bit like buying a car from a supermarket, they know more about baked beans,  if you get my meaning.
