PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of today's news, this is my favourite Nokia device of all time. The 8800 was gallery play in design, construction, and attention to detail. Not even today's phones come even close to how beautiful, sleek, and incredibly sturdy the 8800 felt. I reviewed it for OSNews way back in 2006.

The slider mechanism used ball bearings. Ball bearings.

I love the N100 series. It's way advanced over the most "smart"phones. It can last at least a week without recharge (compare with "smart"phones!), takes little space, and costs like nothing.

The N113 has bluetooth so you can sync contacts / messages with your PC. Specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_113-4758.php

Sorry for the advertising. I just love my simple, KISS, do-one-thing-and-do-it-great device. For browsing, but a tablet or whatever.

On a side note:

One day he will discover "silent mode". ;)
