I recently got my hands on my very own Imate Ultimate 8502. I upgraded from the Imate JasJam and I must say that I’m very impressed.
The ultimate series includes two devices availble from Telstra on the NextG Network. The Ultimate 8502 is a front facing qwerty keyboard design and the Ultimate 9502 is the slide up screen format, similar to the JasJam. I chose the 8502 as I felt the keyboard on the 9502 was a little difficult to use especially when using the edge keys.

My impressions of the device.
- Smaller than the Jasjam
- Keyboard more accessible
- Side Voice and Camera buttons do get in the way.
- Camera only 2 MP – an upgrade would have been expected
- Keys are quite small but easy to distinguish.
