i-mate offering an “eternal warranty” on the new 810-F

When a company exclaims its about to release something “revolutionary,” the text preceding said claims immediately come to life in my mind as a Billy Mays infomercial. So naturally when I read i-mate was getting ready to reveal something “revolutionary” at MWC 2009, I didn’t flinch. But I can admit when I’m wrong, and i-mate’s new 810-F is pretty stinkin’ cool. The device comes with an “eternal warranty” and has been manufactured according to military standards. This hardcore device can withstand extreme temperatures (ranging from -10 to +60 degrees centigrade), hard hits and a nice dunk into a body of water of your choosing. Its body is covered by waterproof rubber coating attached with overt screws, runs Windows Mobile 6.1, a full QWERTY keyboard, QVGA touchscreen, 624 MHz PXA processor, 2-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, digital compass, accelerometer and Bluetooth. The internal memory is 2.2 GB and supports global 3G. Just when you think you can’t pack another unique feature onto this phone, i-mate includes the Secure i-Q service which deletes or locks up your entire personal information in case its been stolen or lost – not to mention it will probably outlive mankind. I’m excited to see this bad boy at MWC!
