Hi there,  Does anyone have feedback on the JasJar?  've heard some negative feedback from someone who previously was a Palm user.

It would be good if I could get some feedback on performance etc before I make the decision on moving up to this device.  I currently use the Ipaq.

Thank you.

I am happy with mine. Make sure you upgrade it to AKU2 as soon as possible, as you will notice some improvements in memory usage and performance.

And it is actually a Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, not a Windows Mobile Smartphone (as the post leads to believe since the thread was created in the Smartphone forum originally).

Great phone but a bit bulky

I have one for work (just as well - couldn't afford to buy one myself !!)

Well built, works well, though i have to say its way too bulky to use as an everyday phone - I have must trusty Nokia 6230 for that.  Good keyboard but I don't use it much, prefer to use block recogniser (I'm an ex-Palm user) or the "virtual" keyboard.
 
In reality, what I would have preferred is a K-Jam or Jamin for size with 3G for speed. We're on Vodafone, othwise I'd have gone with a Telecom Apache.

Pros


640*480 screen really makes a difference in terms of usage


Almost usable keyboard

SD slot instead of Mini-SD

Wifi support

Windows Mobile 5 is good but get the update like Mauricio says

Cons

Too big to use as a phone - you need a bluetooth headset because it looks like you're talking into Maxwell Smart's shoe-phone otherwise

The 64kbit/s upload speed on Vodafone 3G is annoyingly slow

Expensive - VFNZ wants two grand inc. GST for it

Slow performance with original OS/FW version


Verdict

Hmm, how about getting a cheap laptop instead? Wink
