  • 05 December, 2007 10:52

<p><b>Customisation is key - the new i-mate™ range of Windows Mobile® devices offer a unique combination of innovative features and extensive support</b></p>
<p>i-mate™, the global specialist in Microsoft® devices and software applications, today announced four new mobile devices all featuring the latest mobile technology with a special emphasis on customisation and superior security for users.</p>
<p>Spearheading the announcement will be mobile devices from both the highly acclaimed Ultimate and JAMA ranges. The four devices include: Ultimate 6150, Ultimate 8150, JAMA 101 and JAMA 201. i-mate™ devices will be available in stores nationwide in early 2008.</p>
<p>Discussing what makes i-mate™ the smarter choice, Michael Cavey, General Manager of i-mate™ APAC said “We offer a superior mobile solution. This includes a full range of Windows Mobile® devices of exceptional quality, innovative solutions, and extensive support, all exclusive to i-mate™ customers and free with every i-mate™ device.”</p>
<p>The Ultimate device range features a unique combination of exceptional functionality including XGA Video Out so you can connect an Ultimate device to a digital projector, desktop screen or TV at high resolution. Powered by Windows Mobile® 6 software, the Ultimate phones come in two different form factors to choose from with big 2.8” or 2.6” VGA touch screens, QWERTY keyboard or phone keypad, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, Quad-Band GSM™/EDGE, Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, 2.0 Megapixel-camera, FM Radio, WiFi 802.11b/g/e/i, Bluetooth® v2.0, and a microSD™ card slot.</p>
<p>The JAMA device range is the ideal entry level Windows Mobile® 6 software powered solution with 2.4” and 2.5” TFT LCDs, 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 MHz, 2.0 Megapixel cameras, Bluetooth® v1.2 connectivity and a microSD™ card slot.</p>
<p>Designed in-house by i-mate™’s leading team of software engineers, Custom i-Q means no two i-mate™ devices are the same. This is because you can completely customise your i-mate™ mobile with all your settings and preferences installed over the air so you just power up and go.</p>
<p>The i-mate™ Secure i-Q solution delivers peace of mind to consumer and corporate customers alike as they can remotely lock down their mobile device, and/or wipe out any personal data in the event that their i-mate™ mobile device is lost or stolen. This even includes any information stored on an SD card. With one mobile device being lost/stolen every 3 minutes in Australia, according to the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association, this service is expected to be very well received.</p>
<p>i-mate™ also offers extensive assistance to customers via Support i-Q. From a 24x7 support line through to live support online and a 12/24-month global warranty, i-mate™ plans on becoming the choice of the discerning mobile device customer throughout Australia and beyond.</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
