Both the devices are equipped with a large 2.4" touchscreen 65K colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution and are powered by the same TI OMAP 850 200MHz processor.
Connectivity features include Bluetooth 1.2 with A2DP profile support and a miniUSB jack. The integrated memory of 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM can be expanded by the microSD memory card slot which currently allows for up to 2GB of additional storage.
Both the i-mate JAQ3 and the i-mate PDAL sport a 2 megapixel camera and feature some standard preinstalled office applications as well as the trial i-mate Suite software package.
It has got be noted that although the JAQ3 is a bit on the heavy side with its 160 g, it is among the slimmest PocketPC devices with its 14.5 mm thickness. In the same time, the i-mate PDAL scores great in the weight contest since it weighs only 116 g which is a nice achievement for a Windows Mobile PocketPC.
