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 prefer the old candy bar models. My son uses my old 1101:

It's a phone and not much more, but it's very easy and quick to use, simple. Just grab it, press 'n' hold a speed dial number and it makes a call.

You also never had to worry about making it to the end of the day with the battery.

So, when will we see shell replacements for dominating crop of smartphones, bringing back that 1100 (or 3310 ...Series 30 generally) kind of experience? ;)

Who knows, maybe they'll have better luck than Litestep and such from a decade+ ago...

Keep an eye on Chinese sellers on eBay! My wife gets their stuff from them. Certainly iPhone covers, they have a huge selection.

Including shipping costs a lot cheaper than here in a shop. It just takes some time to get here.
