Not only has Telstra
secured exclusive rights to i-mate's freshly minted 8502 and 9502
Windows Mobile superphones in Australia -- it turns out they'll also be the very first carrier to launch 'em anywhere in the world when they hit shelves early next month. The carrier has historically been an excellent customer of i-mate's, bringing a grand total of ten devices to its airwaves so far in a five-year deal. Lucky Aussies will see the 8502 landing for $999 AUD (about $898) while the
9502 drops for a whopping $1099 AUD (about $988).
