HTC has been at it again. The tireless phone powerhouse has nutted out yet another smart-as-chips mobile to rival, well, the rest of its own smartphone creations.

In the field of smartphone design, there isn’t much competition for the Taiwanese smartie mogul. For this particular guise, you’re looking upon the iMate-branded Jamin, a quad band, 200MHz processor white-coated boffin of a phone, delivering Windows Mobile 5.0 in all its processor-intensive glory. Memory equates to 64MB of RAM and 128MB of ROM and there’s Bluetooth 2.0, and 802.11b and g for wireless frippery.

In the screen stakes, the Jamin feasts upon a 2.8 in, 320x240-pixel touchscreen TFT which, when allied to a 2MP cam, will no doubt deliver some tasty visual treats. This successor to the ever-popular Jam also weighs no more than its predecessor at 160g and is exactly the same size, making it a pocketable little chap. It also means, if you already own a Jam, you can upgrade without having to replace all your accessories. Sweet.

So if portability is more important to you than raw power, why not nip on over to Expansys.com and bag yourself one. The offline asking price? A mere £440, but there are plenty of contract deals on offer to ease the pain to your bank balance. Full product details here.
