i-mate to present “revolutionary” handset at MWC 2009, possibly with Windows Mobile 6.5
i-mate, the Dubai-based developer of Windows Mobile devices, is reportedly preparing a breakthrough smartphone that will be presented in February, during MWC 2009.
For the moment, there’s little info about the smartphone, but, according to msmobiles, it will be “revolutionary” and “like nothing else”.
This being said, it’s possible that we’ll see a Windows Mobile 6.5 device from i-mate – since the company has a very strong relationship with Microsoft, it’s very unlikely for it to choose another OS. And, well, WM 6.5 is just around the corner.
Here’s a mockup, based on the i-mate Ultimate 9502:
If i-mate indeed has a killer handset to unveil, it will be joining Acer and Huawei, which both announced their intentions to come with breakthrough mobile devices at this year’s edition of Mobile World Congress.
