Introduction The Imate JAMin is another amazing phone made by HTC and branded by Imate. The JAMin is also known as the HTC Prophet, O2 XDA NEO, QTEK S200, Orange SPV 600 and Dopod 818 PRO. The JAMin is the newer version of the Imate JAM and adds various important upgrades. The JAMin is quad-band GSM and comes unlocked to be used anywhere in the world. The JAMin has a 200 MHz processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, Windows Mobile 5 PPC edition, SD expansion slot and a lot more. Design The JAMin is a very small and compact Pocket PC. The JAMin does not have a slide keyboard or numeric keypad. The casing of the phone feels like metal and not plastic like similar devices. The front panel of the phone has an excellent design. Under the touch screen display is the left and right soft-key, the talk and end button which are raised higher than the other buttons to make it easier to press. Under the talk/end buttons is the windows and ok button. The windows and ok button are very important to navigate Windows phones and were not seen on HTC phones before this. The stylus is located at the top right hand corner of the phone and is very secure. Beside the stylus is the power button which turns the display on/off. On top of the phone is the SD card slot. It is nice to see that this phone has SD expansion and not mini SD or micro SD which cost more and have less capacity. On the bottom side of the phone is the 2.5mm headphone jack, mini USB port and the reset button. On the left hand side of the phone we have the camera button, comm manager and volume control. There are two LED’s located on the front speaker. One LED is blue for Bluetooth status and the other is orange for missed calls and other notifications. When the phone is done charging the LED will be green. Basic Features << click to view full specs... The JAMin has all the basic features that Windows Mobile offers.

The camera is 2.0 mega pixels and does not have a built in flash. The camera captures average pictures and is nothing special. During the day pictures are decent but at night or poor light conditions the pictures turn out awful. Although the camera is 2.0 mega pixels does not necessarily mean that it is good in all conditions, a flash could have helped a lot. The camera also has macro mode which can be selected on the camera lens. The Bluetooth on the JAMin is 1.2 and of course does not have EDR (Enhanced Data Rate). The JAMin does not offer stereo over Bluetooth capability. At the time of release Bluetooth version 1.2 was the latest technology and was far better than the 1.0 standard. Due to the fact that Bluetooth is hardware not software you can not upgrade it to 2.0. The WiFi works great on the JAMin and will be discussed more in detail under the internet section of the review. Display The JAMin’s display is QVGA with 240 x 320 resolution. Compared to other similar devices the JAMin has one of the brightest displays. The display on the JAMin is touch sensitive and is maneuvered by the built in stylus. Using the stylus will eventually scratch you screen so it is good idea to get a screen protector. Audio The JAMin is great for listening to music. The phone comes with stereo headphones that have a built in microphone for making and receiving calls. The headphone jack is 2.5mm but you can buy a 3.5 mm converter for real cheap on Ebay. The good news is that the Jamin supports SD memory card which is currently the cheapest form of memory for phones. With 4 GB SD cards being relatively cheap, you can enjoy all your favorite music on this phone.
