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.

The most indestructible phone I ever had was a Nokia 6250, which was basically the same as the venerable 6210, but completely waterproof and shock proof.

There have been a lot of splash-proof phones since then, but this was the only phone I have ever seen where the instruction manual said if you get it dirty, then run it under the tap for a few seconds.

Unfortunately it died after I used it for about 5 years.
