A new version of the Cingular Blackjack is coming to an AT&T store near you. The phone offers the same sleek design with an upgraded Windows Mobile 6 Standard OS. The phone also offers built in GPS; a feature we do not see that often in Smartphones. Although this device has been “upgraded” there is still NO WiFi!!
“Introducing our triple threat – the BlackJack II by Samsung. It’s sleeker, smarter, and even easier to use than the original. Now with Windows Mobile 6, faster 3G download speeds, a larger 2.4″ display screen, and a stylish look, it’s the device all other smart devices want to be.”
Telus has just announced two new devices to add to their HTC linup. Telus already carries the P4000 and the S720 and now they have added the HTC Touch and S640 to their PDA selection.
Telus must have an excellent hookup with HTC since they are the first CDMA service providers in the world to get these phones.
The HTC Touch will be $499.99 without contract, $449 with 1 year, $399 with 2 year and $149 with three year.
The HTC S640 will be $449 without contracr, $399 with 1 year, $349 with 2 year and $149 with 3 year.
If your planning on getting these devices with contract read their fineprint:
“Available for clients who activate voice and data service on a 3-year contract with an Email, Web & Voice or Talk & Email plan of $45 or more, or any Voice Rate Plan $20 or more with an Email & Web add-on of $25 or more. Please review the rate plan offer information attached. TELUS reserves the right to modify eligible rate plans with this offer at any time without advance notice.”
You must already know how great Imate is when it comes to naming their devices… K-jar, Jasjar, Jasjam to name a few!! Well there new devices are called…. Imate Jama!!
No wonder Imate is in trouble, they can’t give a decent name to any one of their devices, their best phones were made by HTC only and now the best phones from the “Ultimate line” are dropped to be replaced by these….
Summary: No 3G, No WiFi, No GSM 850 band.
Cancelled Imate devices:
We are finally pleased to announce that the Samsung i620’s shipment is on it’s way. The phone is unlocked and unbranded and will work on any GSM provider worldwide! The first shipment is very limited due to the high demand so please reserve your’s now!!

Here’s a video of the i620 in action:
WIMP is a great new application for Windows Mobile phones which have a built in GPS receiver. Let’s say your phone gets stolen and you have no idea where it is, No Problem you have WIMP!!
When you first use the program you have to enter in a pincode and a friend’s phone number. If someone steals your phone and puts in there SIM this program will automatically send a text msg informing you of the new number.
Now that you have the new number of the person using your phone or if they’re still using your SIM all you have to do is send a short Text Msg ($WIMP****) with your pincode.
Now the phone will automatically turn on the GPS in the background without the person knowing and reply with a text msg telling you the exact coordinates of the phone location and a URL link for Google Maps.
WIMP is an excellent program and really worth buying. The program only cost 10 pounds which is around $20 and is definitely worth the investment in case you really lose your phone or get it stolen. WIMP works on all Windows Mobile 5 and 6 phones and is only 140KB!!
