i-mate Smartflip

 

The Smartflip differs from the other i-mate phones in two ways: it's the only clamshell phone that i-mate has in their entire line-up, and it's one of the very few i-mate phones without a combination of 'SP' or 'JAM' or 'JAS' in its name. Sorry, I...

The Smartflip costs around Rs. 23,000 which is a considerable premium when kept next to the Nokia N71 clamshell Smartphone. The N71 costs around Rs. 19,000 and offers you dual cameras (2-megapixel and VGA) for 3G/WCDMA video conferencing, a better 256k...

Size, Speed, Interface and Controls, Display

No Wi-Fi, Location of SD Card Slot, Proprietary charger/USB connector, Large keypad

Compact, yet elegant and stylish, it's hard to believe the Smartflip is a fully fledged smart phone running Windows Mobile 5. An excellent unit that's only let down by the lack of native Wi-Fi.

Thin and light ; Speedy performance ; Intuitive user interface ; Dual screens ; Hardware music navigation buttons

Small screen hinders office productivity applications ; Lacks Wi-Fi ; Proprietary USB connector ; No 3G support

If you're looking for a compact phone but at the same time require the power to view and compose e-mail, documents, presentations and spreadsheets, the Smartflip should fit the bill nicely.

i-mate Smartflip

 

Is your PDA-phone your partner in life? If its too bulky and complicated, you just sometimes want to break up with it, right? The new i-mate Smartflip is the answer to your dilemma

User-friendly navigation buttons and keys ; Compact and lightweight ; No need for a stylus to navigate menu functions ; Dual vivid LCD screen displays ; Bundled with all the useful stuff you actually need from a functional smartphone

Small LCD display which provides users with difficulties in viewing long emails or spreadsheets ; Lacks WiFi, infrared, and 3G ; Poor video or image quality due to small LCD display size ; No camera flash

If you need a mobile phone handset which can easily switch from play to work, the i-mate Smartflip mobile phone handset is a good choice. Compact, sleek, stylish and with all smartphone features, this phone will not disappoint you.
