i-mate® has added chic, sleek and sexy to the already astounding range of features in its Smartphone range with the new i-mate® Smartflip. The Smartflip is the perfect balance between business functionality and lifestyle applications - a feature-rich Smartphone with a unique combination of striking good looks and remarkable functionality.
The Smartflip is a super-slim marvel of mobile engineering. At just 16mm thick it slips into a pocket or purse, but its svelte design by no means compromises the phone’s functionality. Full colour dual screens and etched metallic look flat keypad with luminescent back light allows for fast and simple navigation. Business users get Microsoft® Pocket Outlook for Contacts, Calendar, Messaging, Tasks & Voice Notes, with the superb seamless synchronisation of ActiveSync, and the ClearVue viewers for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF documents. GPRS and EDGE support make for speedy data connections, and the phone can act as a GSM data modem, with both Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
Dual screens provide the usual i-mate brilliant display at 240x320 pixels inside and a 128x128 outside screen for caller information, clock, status, and self-portrait viewfinder. The 1.3 Megapixel camera does stills and video, and audio functions includes support for all major formats with great stereo sound and a hands-free phone function.
For music lovers, audio playback can be controlled using external buttons without opening the phone, and a MicroSD card slot provides additional storage for music and images.
The flat keyboard is comfortably sized for ease of use, with a five-way navigation button and two soft keys. Side buttons control volume, camera, voice memo and voice dialling.
The Smartflip is powered by Windows Mobile 5, and comes pre-loaded with three games.
