i-mate JASJAM time to chat anywhere
The souk for devices successively on the Windows Mobile raised area is heating up with new handhelds being commenced every fortnight or so. This time, , there were hardly half-a-dozen devices while today we have over 15 models sporting the Operating System that many people love to hate. With new competitor like zing coming into the arena, which has been subjugated by HP and i-mate so far, consumers are hurdle to be substandard with more choices. One such donation from i-mate is the Jasjam which will set the cadence for the new requirements much like the JasJar did in previous days.
In the midst of number of handsets overflowing in the market, accurately, their classification has supposed approximately a trendy rank with mobile companies going all out on their ingenious, ultra-chic jugglery. For instance, the likes of Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson use a combination of numbers and alphabets, while LG has now going ahead using terms like Chocolate, Pulse and blow up to discriminate one series from the other. I-mate, on the other hand, has a number of handsets that sport the phrase ‘JAM’. It started with the device Jam, then the K-Jam, only to be followed by a Jamin and now the Jasjam. Could it be due to the fact that i-mate’s founder and CEO sports the initials JAM (for the uninitiated, he’s Jim Alexander Morrison)? Well, if that’s the reason, don’t be astounded if you are served with some more toys that have the JAM-factor in them.
The Jasjam has a sliding QWERTY keypad for ‘thumbing’ e-mails and text messages. The success of the K-Jam has led the manufacturer to work on a 3G version and the Jasjam is a sunny outcome of all the research and development that has gone into it. Though one doesn’t required a physical keypad in a touch screen device, but we always prefer to have one for the handiness it offers, predominantly if one has to type somewhat while on the move. And rather than providing insignificant keys on the face of the device itself, providing them underneath (a sliding mechanism) is for eternity a better option. Being an upgrade, there are plenty of hardware changes in the jasjam as opposed to the K-Jam. The most defining one of them is the insertion of a jog-dial with a back key, a la BlackBerry. Placed on the left edge, the preparation aids in single-handed operation of the device, which is the first time that we are occurrence on a Windows mobile device. The back key set in motion the start menu in the home screen and then one can navigate through the like chalk and cheese menu options. The jog dial itself is a three-way dial, which means that one can not only traverse through the options but also select the desired one by pressing the dial. Another greeting totalling has been an enhanced keypad that tenders more comfy typing. And then, the prevalent upgrade of all, the jasjam has A few chances have been upped like the two megapixel primary camera with a macro-mode option as well as a CMOS secondary camera for video calling. Now, that’s one heck of a loaded handset.
For a 3G device with such potentials, it was indispensable to have a more influential processor than the Tl OMAP 850 running at 200 MHz that featured in the K-Jam. So the new i-mate Jasjam is an explicit mobile phone priced to have the people.
