The 9502 runs Windows Mobile and offers integrated support for Direct Video Out, should you want to connect it to a monitor or projector to watch videos on a larger screen. Being able to run video conferencing calls and display presentations straight off the phone makes the Ultimate 9502 "a viable alternative to a notebook", i-mate said.
