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.

Those 2 phones just show how much our current phones, be them smart or dumb, suck ass.
If Nokia would release the Nokia 888 it would get back it's #1 status instantly and for 10 years.

Non-existing "phones" show how much our current phones suck ass - existing phones which are actually practical, useful, and overall doing their job?

(NVM how its debatable if those two concepts will ever be very practical; humans tend to be quite horrible at predicting the future http://www.osnews.com/permalink?523521 )

Though, funny, the UI of Nokia 888 is not only quite a bit in the spirit of Windows Phone & Metro ...also one of the messages resonates with "What do you want to do today" Microsoft slogan ;)
