In what might be the shortest timespan from first to third product iteration in the recorded history of mankind, it now appears that i-mate is preparing yet another version in its JAQ series of QWERTY Pocket PCs. For those who haven't been keeping count, this would be JAQ4 (remember, there was no JAQ2), which is positively astonishing when you consider that we got our first hands-on glance of the first JAQ just three short months ago at LA's CTIA. There isn't much to write about here; compared to the JAQ3, the specs pretty much carry over (still no 3G) though the inclusion of a GPS antenna is a welcome addition. Perhaps more interesting is the SP JAM, which features a Fastap keypad (of all things), a generous 256MB of internal storage, 802.11g, Bluetooth 2.0, and TV out. Look for both devices to apparently hit the streets around February of next year.
