i-mate Smartflip


The i-Mate Smartflip is a revolutionary new entry into the smart phone market, Lightweight and ultra slim, offering a never before seen compact and lightweight clamshell design running the new Windows Mobile 5 OS, EDGE and Bluetooth connectivity, yet incorporates a high quality 1.3 megapixel digital camera and personal music player with dedicated controls that allow you to take full advantage of any free time. Measuring just 98.5 x 51.4 x 15.8mm and weighing a mere 99 grams, it looks distinctively similar to the Motorola RAZR V3, with thin lines and sleek curves. The Smartflip opens to reveal an impressive, bright and clear display. The 2.2-inch TFT LCD is smaller than many other smart phones, but this is required because of the size of the unit. It has a very good viewing angle and is clearly visible in sunlight. It includes GPRS and Bluetooth as connectivity options however, infrared is absent. Getting back to the camera, it has a number of features, including grayscale, sepia and cool effects, a 2 and 10 second self-timer, 2x digital zoom and the ability to adjust white balance settings, but it is missing perhaps one of the most important features- a flash. The quality of pictures isn’t impressive with poor colour reproduction and image noise. The Smartflip also enables you to capture short (MMS) or long videos but the quality again isn’t anything to write home about. The Smartflip has an average battery life with up to five hours of talk time and 150 hours of standby time according to i-Mate figures, which we can consider a downside because the phone isn’t 3G.
