PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of today's news, this is my favourite Nokia device of all time. The 8800 was gallery play in design, construction, and attention to detail. Not even today's phones come even close to how beautiful, sleek, and incredibly sturdy the 8800 felt. I reviewed it for OSNews way back in 2006.

The slider mechanism used ball bearings. Ball bearings.

I prefer the titanium 8890, the model that succeeded the 8800, much more. Was a lot more robust, and I generally preferred the 8890's matte-ish finish over the tacky-shiny 8800's one.

Special mention for the 8110 banana-phone. Was cool even before The Matrix popularized it.
