PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So the writing is on the wall. In a very bold move, Nokia's new CEO, Stephen Elop, has decided to fully ditch Nokia's migration plan for the past few years and have the company embrace his former employer's operating system, Windows Phone 7, instead. This noticeably implied getting rid of two competitors, Symbian and the upcoming MeeGo, which were both put on the road to slow death. This article aims at saying goodbye to an old citizen of the mobile space who's now heading to its grave: Symbian. (Warning: Rant ahead)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_5110

I am not even 21 yet, and that was my first phone (hand-me-down from my mother)

You would have to be 15 or so to be too young?

I remember having a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_2650 at 15, and it was relatively similar.

At least one of these runs s40, according to Wikipedia. For the 5110, I think wiki's photograph is inaccurate because phones like this one weren't common anymore when I was in high school.

Uau! The 51150!

I still remember the days when everyone wanted to have it, how could it was that you didn't add to strecht the antenna to be able to use like many mobile phones before it.

It really makes me feel my real age.

As for UIQ examples, you are better off with
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UIQ

It was mainly a Sony-Ericson thing, and incompatible with S60 UI.

Which was also a big problem in the Symbiam platform.

Not only was API a pain to use, you had to code the UI
twice.
