Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phones are often praised for their touch-sensitive screens, relatively large library of third-party software and good integration into existing office systems. But they sometimes lose out in terms of overall size and, in many cases, are tied to particular network operators for voice and data services. I-mate’s JAM, which is available via Telstra, overcomes all the negatives in one fell swoop, being remarkably small and light. Even better, it’s also available SIM-free or you have the option of inserting a SIM card.
The design is also appealing: the phone boasts rounded edges and is antenna-free. This allows the unit to sit snugly in a pocket or bag, and when you pull it out it won’t catch on anything. Among smartphones, this is is one of the better models.
