i-Mate Jama 201

The i-mate JAMA 201 is extremely poor on the connectivity front, has a rubbish camera and average video playback performance. As an email solution it's not bad, due to the Qwerty keyboard, above average battery life and largish screen, but in terms of...

i-mate JAMA 201

 

Slim and lightweight smartphone

Lightweight frame, rubberised finish, comfortable and tactile keypad

No 3G connectivity, tri-band and not quad-band GSM, Bluetooth 1.2, USB 1.2, mediocre camera, slow processor

The JAMA 201 boasts an excellent design and the keyboard and controls make it a pleasure to use, but the lack of features will turn many away.

The JAMA 201 smartphone looks the part of a smartphone, but it's not good enough to be the real deal.

The JAMA 201 does represent a challenge to the smartphone market in that it brings an unlocked Windows Mobile 6 platform to market for only $489. It's just that in doing so, it makes so many compromises, and strips so much out of what we'd want from a...

FIRST LOOK: i-mate Jama 201, cheapie smartphone has a few tricks

 

Wants Windows Mobile without all the bells and whistles? This cheapie is under $500

It's certainly an improvement on the i-mate Ultimate 8502 which has every feature under the sun, including fast 3G download speeds for email and Web, but lacks a reasonably sized keyboard
