The bigger, stronger sibling in i-mate's pair of new phones, the unlocked $725 Ultimate 8150 is the most powerful Windows Mobile phone you can buy today. It isn't perfect by a long shot-it's unsightly and expensive, and i-mate still needs to work out...

Lightning-fast and powerful.

Extremely expensive. Battery bug has delayed release.

This Windows Mobile phone won't win any beauty contests, but it does deserve performance awards thanks to its beefy processor and graphics chipset.

I-Q services, VGA output

Average keypad, battery life

As a PDA, the i-mate Ultimate 8150 is a reasonable choice. As business tool it's quite a feature-packed device with some additional functionality provided by i-mate's I-Q feature.

i-mate Ultimate 8150

 

This Windows Mobile smartphone has plenty of features, including a display output, but does it do enough to win over Jon?

The target audience of such a feature is, of course, the mobile presenter - it offers the opportunity to travel light and yet still be able to display basic slideshows. But contractors could also find a use for it. While you're out on-site, with the...

Offering the same zippy performance as the Ultimate 6150, the 8150 gets its nose in front with a handy alpha-numeric keypad.

Excellent VGA display ; Fast 520MHz processor ; XGA TV-Out ; Excellent connectivity options ; Numeric keypad

Dismal battery life ; Large, heavy handset

Considering the two devices have matching retail prices, our pick is the 8150. It's a shame that the keypad isn't as easy to use as we'd like.

i-mate Ultimate 8150

 

suits computer engineer , blaming the device for our ignorance is not fair , i bought this yesterday , i should admit battery is not that gr8 but acceptable , 9 10 hours , i heard some music couple of videos (my own wedding video) , its fine not too poor

gr8 look & quicker performance ; smallest of its kind (i think) ; stylus works very accurately

battery should improve ; phone goes off after 2nd low battery warning, you may miss the calls
