In case it wasn't obvious from the retail 8150 hands-on, the first two (only two?) of i-mate's Ultimate series devices have started shipping. The color scheme has mercifully been changed from the sickly gold shown at CeBIT to a far more tolerable black, but otherwise the specs ring true to what we'd been told to expect: quadband GSM / EDGE plus triband HSDPA, 128MB of RAM, 256MB of ROM, 2 megapixel autofocus cam, VGA display, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD slot and TV out (whew). About the only difference between these two models, then, is the notably different keypad layout. The releases appear to be restricted to the Middle East at the moment, though we imagine it won't be too difficult to get one shipped out to your region of choice for the right price.
