i-mate will offer an unlocked rebadge of the HTC Hermes PDA phone

Engadget reports that i-mate will be rebadging the HTC Hermes as the i-mate Jas Jam smartphone. The smartphone will run Windows Mobile 5.0 on a 300 MHz processor which is most likely a Texas Instruments OMAP850. As far as wireless support goes the Jas Jam will support GSM, GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g. Additionally it has a 2.1MP camera with 64 MB of ram for storage and 128 MB of ROM.

Availability and pricing of the Jas Jam is unknown at the moment but phone carriers are expected to have similar HTC Hermes rebadged models this summer in Europe. There’s no word on whether US cell phone companies such as T-Mobile and Cingular will offer the HTC Hermes as a replacement for the current HTC Wizard or not.

The quest for the ultimate mobile phone continues...
