The Jasjar is for dedicated mobile workers who are willing to accept the cumbersome bulk in return for a big screen and keyboard

I-mate JasJar

 

Welcome to the device that has everything. The strangely named JasJar from I-mate is technically a smartphone, as it combines both PDA and mobile phon...

Every feature you could want. Native Wi-Fi, 3G compatible, swivel screen

Large, bulky and heavy, processor too slow, poor battery life

The mother of all smartphones, this monster has a large price tag to match its large dimensions

i-mate JASJAR

 

Fast ; Unparalleled array of connectivity options ; Two integrated cameras ; High resolution screen ; Huge QWERTY keypad leads to painless data entry ; Swivel screen adds versatility

Expensive ; Design isn't suitable for use as your full-time phone ; Large and heavy ; Camera shots are grainy

Despite its unsavoury aesthetics, the JASJAR is an ideal companion for the mobile professional that needs to input large amounts of data on the go.

Review: i-mate JasJar

 

While I was initially turned off by the ominous size and weight of the beast, i-mate's JasJar (aka HTC Universal) managed to win me over with its huge feature set, new UI tweaks, and great wireless connectivity.

The i-Mate JasJar Reviewed

 

It's no secret that I've been dying to get a Universal since they were announced. However, with that anticipation came a dread that I'd fall into the same situation as before: A device that looked good on paper, but was mediocre in person. Fortunately,...

Amazingly useful keyboard & form factor ; Good speed & processing ability ; Everything you need - VGA, phone, Wi-Fi, keyboard

Battery Life ; GSM reception can be spotty ; Price

i-mate JASJAR

 

Didn't realise how good it was until I looked at replacing it with something smaller.

Got everthing I need

Initial adjustment to the size ; Positioning of the Talk / End buttons on the side could be rethought. I have accidently ended a call many times by picking the phone up

i-mate JASJAR

 

great device! very functional!!

full qwerty keyboard with number layout makes the device act as a temporary substitute for laptops. though it cant perform full function of the laptops, still no other pda phone can top this device i think next to HTC advantage

bulky

If you wand a PDA this is a real usable one, if you mainly looking for phone and fun dont buy it...I am an IT consultant, for me it is essential as much as my laptop
