i-mate JAQ3 and PDAL in US

i-mate at CES revealed that its two most recent smartphones, initially available only in the Middle East, will now launch in North America. Courtesy of their quad-band GSM receivers, both the JAQ3 and PDAL (pictured) will arrive on the continent largely unchanged from their original forms, retaining the support for Bluetooth, EDGE Internet access, and Wi-Fi. A 2-megapixel and readiness for "push" e-mail are similarly standard. The handhelds are separated primarily by input, i-mate says. Where the JAQ3 is built for messaging and includes a QWERTY keyboard for typing on its widescreen display, the PDAL is more compact and uses its 2.4-inch touchscreen for typing and most navigation. American pricing is unavailable, but the two devices will arrive in stores by the end of January.
