Unboxing the i-mate Ultimate 9502

Just found a new gadget in Dubai. Expensive L but got it anyway. Available in Sharaff DG in Times Square Mall Dubai as of today. I do already know I'm not keeping it – but just wanted to try it for a few days. J

Here are a few un-boxing pictures for your pleasure J

So here you have the Ultimate 9502 – with pictures. I have now used it for 12 hours – and my initial thoughts are:

  1. Nice with real headset mini-jackplug (works with my nice Nokia Headset)
  2. Screen is very nice – but a bit small for this big device – and it is a shame it does not tilt like the TyTN II.
  3. Buttons are a bit "cheap" - but keyboard inside is great despite its small size.
  4. The device feels slow. Slower than my Nokia E90. Changing from Landscape to Portrait can take a while
  5. My SlingPlayer works fine with it – and very stable – and uses the full screen. Not like the Nokia E90 version…
  6. Battery cover has small (very small) pins for locking – I think they will break if you are not careful.
  7. Speaker is crap compared with my E90s – low in volume and distorts.
  8. Call quality is nowhere near the E90.
  9. The nice dialer i-mate had with HTC is not there anymore –and there are not really a lot of "punch" software in the pack like HTC provides

So in general – if you want Windows Mobile – this is a great device for you. One of the best out there – HTC does a better design job – but no normal sized HTC phones are available with 640x480 screen. Some of the design elements seem like crude Russian mid 1970s inspired. So it is built like a tank apart from pen and battery cover.

Windows Mobile is Windows Mobile – so not a lot to say about that apart from it supports the 1970s built like a tank (in Russia)

Thanks for taking the time to look in on us J and if you want to buy a slightly used i-mate Ultimate 9502 – ping me.
