Summary: Bought for Internet access during the trip but compact browser from Windows Mobile is really not good at full feature internet browsing. But it is a ideal tool for email accesing and map live search or google map on the go.
Summary: ive had this phone for about 5-6 years, initially it was about £350 in 2006. its been ok, not suffered much freezing etc but its outdated by todays standards. anyway the touchscreen stopped working after 4-5 years and now it wont turn on at all,these faults developed by themselves and without it being abused or heavily used so dont expect it to last much longer than 5 years.
Summary: For me, this machine does it all: not only is it a mobile phone, with a choice of either touch screen or QWERTY keyboard, but it also does many other things. It is an e-book reader with adjustable type face. It's a camera. It has Word, PowerPoint and Excel as well as Outlook, so you can keep your calendar, contacts and such in sync with your desktop PC.
An excellent pice of kit packed with very useful goodies, but a few niggles with processor speed & headphones

Summary: I have the T-mobile version of this item called MDA Vario but it's exactly the same product. The main reason why I had bought this nice piece of kit was that i got fed up of carrying around 2 pieces of hardware (i had a IPaq as well as a mobile phone). I must admit I was initially concerned that it would be too large and bulky. But in actual fact, it is only slightly thicker than my PDA.

Summary: I have had this phone for over a year - here is my review from day one to now.... *What's in the box?* MDA Vario Smartphone Carry Case Two Stilii (or 2 stylus'!) USB Cable Mains Charger Adhesive Screen Protector. Stereo Headset (with in-line volume control) 2 CD Roms (Microsoft and T-Mobile software) Sim Card (of course) Battery Huge thick manual *First Impressions* Very impressed - to say the least. I charged it up (took about 45 minutes) and then started playing.
Summary: I bought this PDA which was recommended by a friend - initially I could not get along with it but now I could not do without it, its great. It is an excellent item to have organising your daily life. Usually people who write relatively negative views are those that have dived into the item without first taking the time to understand the workings and mechanics of it and how it can help you in your daily life.
Summary: I bought my K-Jam after upgrading my Palm to an HP iPAQ which I just couldn't get on with. I ditched the iPAQ after a month of annoyance and frustration and the K-Jam has been an absolute godsend. More functionality than a Palm, less unnecessary clicks and menus than the iPAQ. It's proven a top notch user friendly PDA & Phone - with a heap of handy windows mobile, MP3 and camera functionality.
Summary: I bought the i-mate K-JAM in Mar 2006. With Office Mobile and wireless it was the best phone and computer in the market and I absolutely dothed on it. However in November 2006 the phone would not charge and the socket on the phone where the charger fits had come loose. Nevertheless it has a supposedly 24 month warranty and when I went to the repair shop, they promptly accused me of manhandling the phone and that this may be treated as a non warranty claim.
Summary: This is an awesome phone. great MP3 facilities, with loads of storage space for albums on miniSD cards, lovely big screen for viewing web pages and pics, not to mention the excellent slideout keyboard - once you start using this for text and emails (did I mention free blackberry-style pushemail regardless of network via the mail2web service), you'll wonder how you ever managed without it!
