i-mate Ultimate 9502 review

 

i-mate is a relative unknown but plans to hit the market hard this year with a number of devices. We see if the Ultimate 9502 can actually live up to its name.

i-mate may be a relatively unknown smartphone manufacturer, but the Ultimate 9502 has potential, despite its macho size. If this is where the Dubai-based company is headed, we’re excited to see what i-mate will bring in the future.

I-mate - Ultimate 9502

 

If you are a fan of the Sidekick format of devices, as sold by T-Mobile in the UK, but want something a bit less teenage and a bit more along the lines of a sophisticated smartphone, ...

The Ultimate 9502 is packed with capabilities, but its unusually large and heavy format might reduce its appeal. If i-mate could cram the features into a smaller package it might have a more winning device on its hands.

The TV-out feature is fun and could be very useful

The 9502 is relatively large and heavy and the processor ran slow at times

i-mate Ultimate 9502

 

Australia's first commercially available HSUPA smart phone, the i-mate Ultimate 9502 offers a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a 2.8i...

Excellent VGA display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, HSUPA and HSDPA capable, Secure and Custom i-Q portals

Chunky and heavy build, slider doesn't feel stable when opened, slow start-up time, no navigational software included

The Ultimate 9502 is one of the first HSUPA-capable phones to hit the market in Australia. Although it's feature packed and the Custom and Secure i-Q portals are a nice touch, you'll need to consider whether its bulky form factor is right for you.

i-mate Ultimate 9502

 

The i-mate Ultimate 9502 is one of the best smartphones we have come across -- and if you're happy with Telstra -- the i-mate 9502 makes an excellent alternative to a BlackBerry or iPhone.

A myriad of features, Big 640x480 display, Touchscreen, HSDPA, Long battery life

Exclusive to Telstra, Windows Mobile 6 can be slow, HSDPA speeds less than Telstra promised

The i-mate Ultimate 9502 is one of the best smartphones we have come across -- and if you're happy with Telstra -- the i-mate 9502 makes an excellent alternative to a Blackberry or iPhone.

A myriad of features ; 2.8-inch VGA Touch screen ; HSPA data speeds ; Long battery life

Exclusive to Telstra ; Windows Mobile 6 can be slow ; HSPA speeds less than Telstra promised

However be aware that Telstra's advertised data rates can be taken with a grain of salt, and set up a strong password when using Secure i-Q.

Expert review by: Daniel Long (pcauthority.com.au)

First Look: i-mate Ultimate 9502, better Foxtel than the 8502

 

The Ultimate 9502 is a heavy, chunkier unit that boasts some useful improvements over its predecessor, including classier Foxtel Mobile viewing thanks to better resolution.

The buttons on the 9502 feel a little more functional than the 8502, including a handy explorer button (for instant browsing) and a multi-directional scroll pad, which is good for navigating web pages
