i-mate SP3i

Posted in Gadgets | Windows Mobile at Tuesday, April 26, 2005 6:43 AM Pacific Daylight Time

A month ago I decided to take the plunge and buy a SmartPhone. With my new job I have a gadget budget so that helped me make the decision. After doing some research I decided to get the i-mate SP3i.

The pros:

  • Nice and small phone
  • Internet access - Syncs with Exchange (thanks to Chris De Herrera who helped me get the settings correct for T-Mobile at the last SoCal .Net Insiders meeting).
  • Syncs with my Outlook on my laptop
  • Best of all - Compact .Net Framework - so I can play around with custom SmartPhone apps
  • Bluetooth

The cons:

Overall it is a pretty cool phone, but the joystick issue is a deal breaker if I can't get it fixed. Especially since the phone isn't cheap. At this point I'm not sure what i-mate's response is going to be (and I suppose I should also contact the vendor I bought it from).

Update: Expansys sent me out a new unit this morning to replace my defective one! They even gave me free second day air shipping. I'm impressed with their customer service! Hopefully the new phone doesn't end up with the same issue.

the joystick issue will not get fixed.any one own this device (like me) have to thrown it away because he will not use it.....it is a useless device without joystick.
