New Smartphone 2


To my delight when i got back to the office after my holiday a nice new i-Mate Smartphone 2 was sitting there! 


After having used it for a few days now i am pretty happy with it.  One annoying thing is when it is docked it keeps asking if i want to use the pass through connection.  Not sure why … but if anyone knows how to solve this please tell me! 


Other than that it is a really great device.  Not sure it will stand up to the same punishment that my old Nokia 6310 did … but then again it does to a WHOLE lot more.


I never really got into the whole PDA thing.  To big and bulky.  Fine when you are working .. but a pain in a ass when you are out and about on the weekend etc… So the PDA in a phone thing is doing it for me big time.  I never really was a big composer of email while on the go … and so the lack of stylus and touch screen is really not that big of a deal for me.  Reading email, calendar and contacts is the biggest thing …. and having it all sync with Exchange Active Sync RULES!


No more phone and PDA … or PDA sized phone …. i love the fact that it is only slightly fatter than my 6310 … but packs all the punch of the Pocket PC.

    I agree, I have had my SmartPhone2 now for a few months and its pretty cool. I did not really get into my PDA either.

    I’ve not had your problem, Chris. Maybe the latest ROM update at http://www.clubimate.com/index.asp?PageAction=DEVICE_SP2_UPD (if you do not already have it) might fix your problem??
