As for the other controls, on top of the device is the power button as well as the IR port. On the right side is the dedicated camera button; it launches the VGA-quality camera, which is located on the back and includes a tiny mirror for self-portraits. On the left side of the device is the volume rocker. Unlike on other devices, the rocker doesn't pull double duty scrolling through menus. On the bottom is the USB port and the minijack for the included stereo headphones. Unfortunately, the headphone jack doesn't accept standard headphones. A major gripe that we have with the design of this device is that the Mini SD memory card slot is located beneath the user-removable battery, preventing hot-swapping.
We like that the I-mate SP3i's battery can be charged through your computer's USB port or with the included power adapter. The device also comes with a belt holster and stereo earbuds that let you listen to music, watch videos, or talk hands-free.
