Conclusion: i-mate SPL copes with the task of a slim smartphone, only 12mm tick and with a metal panel, which helps to its high-class look. Combining its perfect phonebook and organizer together with the perfect sound quality during a call, we can see that SPL is not a bad handset. But its weak points are the weak signal strength and the slow internet connection.
Pros: Slim fashionable design, WM6 Standard, Usable 2 megapixel camera
Cons: The phone acts slow, Lacking even EDGE, you have only the slow GPRS!
Excerpt: Phones have been getting slim and stylish and phones have been getting smart, but there aren’t too many smartphones out there that are really slim and stylish. i-mate’s Smartflip can come close, but it isn’t without its share of problems. The new SPL smartphone looks good, but does it fit the bill? Indeed, the SPL is very SLVR-like. It’s slim, and around 12mm, it may be one of the slimmest Windows Mobile smartphones out there, behind the Motorola Q.
Conclusion: Uno smartphone interessante, dotato di molte funzionalità e, soprattutto, con sistema operativo, anche se si tratta del Windows Mobile 5.0, quindi non proprio aggiornata visto che adesso c’è in giro la versione 6.0. Bisogna comunque considerare che si tratta di un dispositivo uscito nel 2006. Interessanti le funzioni, la memoria espandibile, il media player, peccato per i colori visualizzabili dallo schermo.
