i-mate's latest Windows Mobile device, the Jama, isn't sure whether it wants to be a Windows Mobile Smartphone or a Windows Mobile Pocket PC.

It sure looks like a phone to us. You can just imagine sliding the top section up to reveal a miniature keyboard. But no. There is no keyboard. Instead there is a touch screen, and this candybar device runs Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC.

Essentially what that means is you get the Pocket PC features in a smartphone sized device. Sure, the screen is a little small at 2.4 inches, but your pocket might appreciate the relatively small hardware size. Shame it is only dual band, though. This means it is not one for the frequent international traveller.
