ok, anyone here own JasJar yet? I see that Expansys.co.nz is selling JasJar and can deliver to NZ from Australia in 11 days.

What my question be about is. Will this have right firmware upgrade from Club Imate for NZ's region? Is the device marked as Australia or NZ? What's your experience with Expansys.co.nz towards NZ/International orders? Anyone tried FlexiRent with Expansys.co.nz?


And if you need a new PDA/Phone that is V3G/UMTS today, would you get from Expansys.co.nz? or will you hold out for Vodafone's release?

If it is branded as i-mate then you will have access to Club i-mate and to new ROM. Not sure if it will be marked as Australia or New Zealand (or something else), so a local customisation may not be available - but this is only the network settings and you can enter them manually.

As for purchasing from Expansys, I always thought they were expensive...

The i-mate Jasjar was just announced by Vodafone. At NZ$1999 (US$1400) it's a bit pricey...

How much is it on expansys, with shipping to New Zealand?

Just checked the price. It is AU$1,650 (approx NZ$1,792), without shipping - but NZ Customs will most likely charge import tax and GST due to price.

as posted in the Vodafone New Zealand Introduces 3G Pocket PC Phone Edition

i might stick with the idea of getting Nokia N70 and HP HX4700wm5... that way at least i can get onto 3G network with my laptop using USB Data cable without the use of Bluetooth. and if dont carry laptop, I got HX4700wm5 "bluetoothing" with N70.


the only thing that i'm not too sure about is Nokia's conduit software for Outlook-Nokia sync.... and also not too greatly happy to hear that N90 does not vibrate!!!!! :-(


n90, good high resolution screen, dual screen... but no vibration alert/

n70, good all round with vibration...

n91, similar to n70 but with music player, wifi but no SD/RSMMC support... pending for WMA announcement.

imate WM5/3G smartphone... not on the radar yet, most likely no USB-modem/data-cable support.

imate JasJar, very expensive PDA/Phone, still a PDA... probably be looking at OQO 01+ instead...
