    Cool HOT: i-mate Jaq -- Their First Non-HTC Pocket PC Phone!

    Guys, get a load of this: Looks like i-mate has a "Jaq" up its sleeve -- and HTC is nowhere to be found. According to Hungarian site PDAMania.hu (which I ran through a very, very rough translation), it sounds like this may be i-mate's very first ODM device, meaning i-mate actually designed it from the ground up the same way Motorola designed the Q or the way Palm designs the Treos. And yes, this runs Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition!

    Things are starting to get very, very interesting...

    i-mate Jaq (unconfirmed)

    - OS: Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition
    - Network: Quad-band 850/900/1800/1900 GSM, GPRS and EDGE
    - Memory: 64MB RAM, 128MB ROM
    - Screen: 320x240 (QVGA) TFT LCD 64K color screen
    - Wireless: IrDA, Bluetooth 1.2 (no Wi-Fi)
    - Audio: 2.5mm headphone jack
    - Camera: 1.3 megapixels (that's a shame)
    - Expansion: miniSD card slot
    - Battery: 1440mAh Li-Ion
    - Size: 122mm x 71mm x 22mm
    - Weight: 160g

    Wow! That looks like it might have a touchscreen...I'm interested.
    Take a look at my new blog: MobileGenius. It is really just a few reviews at this point but I think I cover a few things that some of the reviews I have read do not take time for. Feel free to leave a comment!

    It's ugly. I hope the actual design turns better than the prototype. But this would certainly fill the void for those who love the Q but aren't willing to give up the touch screen.

    Palm may design the Treo, but HTC still manufactures the Treo... who will manufacture this device... not Imate, I can tell you that.

    If it runs Pocket PC Phone Edition, it should defininitely have a touch screen!

    No thank you! This would barely be an upgrade at all from my Mini. I would have to buy a new memory card and deal with that awful looking keyboard and screen. I don't think so.

    Definitely not i-mate, but there are dozens (hundreds?) of manufacturers who would be ready and willing to fill HTC's void for i-mate. In fact, even HTC would be glad to manufacture this device for i-mate; HTC has no intention of relinquishing its OEM business. I'd love to find out who i-mate new OEM is.

    Sorry, I have to be totally honest.....it's boring! No wiFi. Otherwise it has the same specs as every other device out now. It is not 320x240. It has a square screen. Not 2.8" screen....it could be 2.8" landscape It is 3/4" thick, which is comparable to 2 Qs

    My money's on this being a fake.

    Hey, this may not be the next best thing to sliced bread, but I still did good with the leak, right?
