PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for linking to a long picture (why this isn't an article I don't know, but bear with me for a second), but this is an excellent overview of some of the crazy hardware experiments Nokia has performed during its golden years. For me, this is the best device Nokia ever made - and also, my personal best and favourite mobile phone I've ever owned. You hear people talking about how solid the iPhone 5 or the HTC One X feels? Fisher Price compared to the 8800. They don't make 'm like that no more.

I must admit that my Nokia was^H^H^H IS a rock solid device.
I owned a 3310 which I left fall almost 20 times. Breaks into small pieces, rebuild it in the dark like a gun @ the army.

But the indestructible one is my Alcatel One Touch Easy.

Still working with AAA accumulators. As big as a cabin.
Fall in the water, no matter. Fly from the window of my car ? No matter (really true, I was leaving a parking lot and the phone goes out the car!).

This phone can almost block the wheels of a truck stuck in a steep street. :-)
