i-mate JAQ3 Pocket PC Phone Review

 

Don't be mistaken, though; there are notable differences between the JAQ3 and the 501. Specifically, the JAQ3 has microSD expansion rather than miniSD, and quad-band GSM/EDGE instead of the tri-band GPRS on the 501

Solid design ; Jog dial ; Management suite

microSD slot ; No 3G ; Slow processor

If that's your goal, then you've got a winner. Otherwise, the JAQ3 is decent, but some other device may be more fitting to your needs

i-mate JAQ3 Pocket PC Phone

 

Every day, it seems, I'm talking with someone new about the possibilities of PDA phones. And every day, I see more and more phone devices in the

Nice keyboard ; Scroll wheel ; Good battery life ; Good one-handed operation

No 3G ; Low call volume (speakerphone included) ; Laggy performance ; No camera flash or light ; Poor reception

I was a tad disappointed with the JAQ3. The size and feel of the unit is more than acceptable, and could have found a welcome place in my mobile world, but the lack of even a semi-powerful processor and 3G capabilities has relegated it to the "can't...

i-mate JAQ3 - Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

So you love the Samsung BlackJack and the T-Mobile Dash MS Smartphones but prefer the Pocket PC version of Windows Mobile with its touch screen and MS Office suite. I-mate hopes that their JAQ3 will win you over in a heartbeat. Yes, the JAQ3 is almost...

Yes, it's large, but the JAQ3 has a great form factor with a QVGA landscape touch screen display and a good keyboard. It's certainly thin at 0.57" and it feels good in the hand (if you have large hands). Great software bundle, nice case included....

Call quality is just OK. The JAQ3 feels sluggish, thanks to the 200MHz TI OMAP CPU. A large device by today's standards, though it's attractive. The small screen isn't easy on the eyes and you must be more accurate with the stylus, though display...

thin). Unfortunately the stock phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" comes to mind. The JAQ3 has a great feature set that looks great on paper, but doesn't execute as well as we'd like on several of those features: the device is slow, WiFi speeds...

i-mate JAQ Pocket PC Phone

 

WHAT'S HOT When we're evaluating new handheld devices, we try to 1. consider the intent of the manufacturer when releasing this device and 2. compare

Terrific backlit keyboard ; Mini-SD slot is external ; Good one-handed operation ; Profile program included ; Useful Auto Config utility to set up internet connections

Bulky ; No camera ; Very plasticy ; No 3G connectivity or WiFi ; No way to quick-dial a contact ; No A2DP stereo Bluetooth support ; 200MHz TI OMAP processor can be slow ; Stylus is in an odd location ; Unusable in bright sunlight

In taking an objective view of the JAQ, we ask: did the manufacturer successfully create the product that it intended to? In this case, i-mate wanted to make a simple and rugged messenger. Yes, it's bulky and slow. Yes, it's lacking a camera and 3G...

i-mate PDA2k Pocket PC Phone Edition review

 

Vodafone will carry this Pocket PC Phone Edition with sliding keyboard, lots of memory and built-in wi-fi. We have a first hand look and compare its performance with other devices.
