i-mate axes most of Ultimate line

Smartphone maker i-mate created quite a stir when they announced a new Ultimate line of PDA/ smartphones consisting of five devices that included the 7150 clamshell which looked to be a good competitor to the HTC Advantage.  Word has come out today that i-mate is canceling all but two of the Ultimate line for reasons unknown.  Unfortunately they are only moving forward with the 6150 and 8150, arguably the two most boring of the line.  Let’s hope this information is proven to be false.  The two Ultimates are expected to ship in October.

UPDATE: Crave is reporting that this is a rumor and untrue according to i-mate.  I am so glad to hear that!

CNET Asia contacted i-mate Asia Pacific and the official word is thecompany still plans to launch all models, but will do so in a staggeredfashion starting with the 8150 and 6150.
