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.

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.

What? I believe you misunderstood what kind of shells I mentioned ;)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_shell_replacement

(unless you took what I pondered further, and you suggest that smartphone covers will have tactile "bumps" on the front, on top of the screen, so that the simulation of 1100 will be more complete ;p )

PS. Generally, while mentioning Nokia 1100, you really should also point out that it has an integrated torch... (came in handy, few times, when I was using a borrowed 1100 for a week or two)
