Well, I have been playing with the QTEK 9100 pre-production model for a couple days now and posting quite a few photos and thoughts on Howard Forums. I have a couple of serious issue with the device, the RF reception is HORRIBLE and the keyboard slider mechanism is way too loose. I was putting together my review, but really don’t want to knock the device too much without testing a production unit. I understand that the RF and keyboard may not be problems on the i-mate K-JAM and this device may even have a much better keyboard backlight.
Thankfully, David is going to send me a production K-JAM this week so I can verify my concerns. If it turns out the issues are fixed then it may be a very tough decision whether or not to keep the Treo 650. The Treo is one INCREDIBLE device and the one handed operation and crisp display really can’t be beat. The Wizard is definitely not a device you can enter text with one handed, but the keyboard is better spaced than the Treo. I was able to operate the device one handed quite well after I mapped a hardware button to OK and one to Today. It still is not as fluid as the Treo and seems a bit forced, but Windows Mobile 5.0 has come a long way to making the experience better.
I like the true multitasking, better file management, WiFi ability with Skype, game selection, and other power features in Windows Mobile better than Palm devices. That said, the Treo 650 is very zippy and has a wonderful collection of software that really do meet my needs.
