    a blackberry is not really a cellphone, should be in off topic
    Current BlackBerrys are absolutely cellphones. They just have extended
    capabilities. Personally, I think this is the perfect place for this thread.

    Wow. 1983 was the year I graduated high school. I remember reading about phones like this one and though it was the coolest thing ever invented. Anything phone related was cool to a teenage girl. LOL

    I find it rather amusing that the article mentions the idea that the cellphone will eventually become electro-organic, something I'd never read or heard about before, but had hypothesized a couple of years ago.

    Imagine syncing with your body and checking your personal 'download' schedule. This might be possible, as long as you don't go to Mexico and drink the agua.

    I do occasionally see an old StarTac in a pawn shop or thrift store. Quite an evolution.

    Yes, they most definitely are. But, so many consider the "phone" part (of any smart phone) secondary, and seem to be most concerned with texting, emailing, picture taking, movie watching, internet browsing, GPS, and everything else other than phoning. Heck, if you can't videotape your cousin's wedding with it, what's it good for? Oh yeah...talking.

    I have seen one that was still in use, but I'm glad to be the recipient of a downline device. Besides, could you even imagine trying to send a text message from something that big?
