i-mate K-JAR Pocket PC
The Dubai-based i-mate has recently shown off a new Pocket PC phone called the K-JAR, says PDAFrance. The design is based off the company's existing JASJAR model. Like the JASJAR, the new product will not only sport a QWERTY keyboard, but also a pivoting display. The K-JAR will have a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, as well as Bluetooth, WiFi, and 64MB of RAM with 128MB of ROM. The OS is Windows Mobile Phone Edition. Curiously, the K-JAR will omit the 3G radio that was in the JASJAR. It's undetermined if and when the K-JAR will come to North America, but i-mate's past efforts to breach the market suggest the phone could be a weapon in the struggle.
