"The SPL is one of the first devices to ship with AKU3. This means the device ships with the very latest revision of the Windows Mobile 5 operating system, with a number of fixes and enhancements, and the .net Compact Framework 2 in ROM (yay!). The SPL contains a generous 128MB of ROM and incredibly, manages to cram a miniSD (yes miniSD) slot into it's slim frame! Hats off to i-mate / TFW for that inclusion. If you've used any of the Samsung thin-devices, you can be forgiven for thinking thin = poor battery life... but the SPL packs a 1100mAh battery (for reference, the C500 had a 1050mAh battery, the C600 a 1150mAh battery). The expansion is miniUSB, which is welcome, as opposed to the proprietary connectors so often found on thin devices (*cough* StrTrk *cough*) "
Paul from MoDaCo has posted his review of i-mates latest Smartphone and their first non-HTC based device. I'm really impressed by the look and features of this device. It will be interesting to follow how well it does in sales and durability too. It looks like i-mate has managed the separation with HTC very well.
