I-mate JAMin

 

The minute we took the I-mate JAMin out of the box, we thought we were seeing double. Small, black and with rounded edges, the JAMin bears a striking ...

Small size, native Wi-Fi

Slow, No FM radio, poor audio

A near perfect blend of style and substance, the I-Mate JAMin is only let down by slow processing speed and poor audio quality

More about business than pleasure, the JAMin has a lot to offer the discerning mobile professional, despite its disappointing multimedia performance.

Clean and compact design ; Matte finish ; Push e-email ; Large screen ; Pleasing battery life

Poor performance ; Multimedia features are sparse ; Lack of keyboard makes heavy data input tedious ; Camera quality is questionable ; Doesn't support 3G

The JAMin is sure to please business users thanks to its pleasing battery life, great design and push e-mail capabilities, but if you're looking to make the most of your smartphone outside of work hours, we find the O2 Atom Exec and HP iPAQ rw6828 to...

A total piecw of crap, and Club i-mate is a farce and useless. The Australian distributor is totally useless. I cracked the screen - four months and $350.00 to repair

Clear display but don't break it

Already mentioned by everybody else

Heaps of features, but unreliable !!!

Do most of what it promises to do. Good WiFi and Bluetooth functions. Nice looking. etc

What's the benefit of all this if it is not reliable? It failed twice, took weeks each time to fix. Last time it just went dead, didn't give me time to backup or delete sensitive data (I am a doctor) ; Very poor after sale support ; To put it simply,...
