i-mate SPL is designed to prove that a smartphone does not necessarily have to be big and ugly. The slim candy-bar phone combines stylish design a-la RAZR (Motorola) and Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone. It is part of a new group of phones – elegant multifunctional devices. The top manufacturers already display such models, but they have no “smart” operating systems. We can mention some of them like Nokia 6300 - the imaging phone, Sony Ericsson W880 - the musical phone and the newly-launched T650. How does SPL cope with its rivals, you will find out later.
