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.

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

True, but you also have to remember that the only nokia phone marketed in the US from about 2000 until the lumia was the N-Gage. Its not reality, but perception based on Nokia's marketing.

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.
