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.

Yeah, Nokia used to be pretty cool.
The one phone that I absolutely loved was the Nokia 6310i. I would exchange my current smartphone in a heart beat for a new 6310i.

This article right here. This is why Nokia was always kind of mocked in the USA. Side-talkin'. A gaming device that requires a battery pull to change games. A leaf phone. It was never cool to have a nokia.

Remember this is the list of "weird" phones, for every one on this list, they brought out 5 to 10 more "normal" phones, each of which was rock solid. The point is, Nokia weren't afraid to innovate

The Nokia 7650 was the coolest phone to own back in the day. Nokia N95 was also pretty cool, but only for a few months, before the iPhone appeared.

+1 to 6310i: battery would last weeks, solid as a rock, os was still a version of symbian designed for the hw specs it was actually running on (i.e. fast and zippy)

6310i used S40, maybe S30 - which are most certainly not Symbian, but run on a separate Nokia OS ( http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devices/Device_specifications/6310i/ plus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_OS & its links)

You can easily buy refurbished Nokia 6310 models on ebay for about $40.
