dittybopper: The first "brick" cellphone call was in 1989 1983.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: I liked my Nokia 232. You could drop that sucker out of a 3rd story window, go down and continue talking (unless you have Verizon, then of course the call would have dropped by then)The Treo 600 was also pretty awesome back in the day./Hey... guess where I'm calling from?
clancifer: Loved my Startac.
Irregardless: They forgot my second phone. The ubiquitous StarTac. I did love that phone.[www.twodee.org image 569x443]
Leader O'Cola: "Never mind that it also was the last Motorola phone that truly mattered......<next phone discussed>...Motorola Rokr -- 2005The Rokr was the first phone to play nicely with iTunes, and it was such a big deal that Steve Jobs himself introduced the phone to the public. Too bad it was a horrible, horrible phone.Sure it worked with iTunes, but it held no more than 100 songs. And getting them onto the phone was as quick and comfortable as a root canal without anesthesia. And then there was the UI. Dear god, the UI. Sluggish doesn't begin to describe it.Still, the Rokr was a milestone because it opened the door to the phone as a media player. It could have been the iPhone. Instead, it inspired Apple to make the iPhone."JFC, how can anyone be so farking stupid and clueless about what they themselves are writing?/picard facepalm dot jpg//etc/// DIAF retard author
