I read the reviews after seeing Airtel introducing it in India. I believe you should stay away from it given the fact iMate products are no longer received with much fanfare. Besides that, the build quality of their products is also shady (based on forum opinions) and they falter a lot. Not a good buy in my opinion.

AFAIK, I-mate products do not have good after sales support in India. Little things like getting new battery to replace old one is hard. I have Cingular 8125 which is nothing bu I-mate K-Jam, and I am not getting the replacement battery.

Even though both have been manufactured by HTC, they won't support the same. Better to go in for Samsung (Omnia) or HTC models launched in India or LG.

takecare and drive safely
