    Apple Newton....

    Before that - Tin cans and string (upgraded to Fiber later)

    It was my dream device. Newton, not cans and string.
    I still remember that feeling of "betrayal" when they stopped its development. I was saving for months to buy new model, damned !

    In 2000, our company got a contract in Seoul. I went to setup the station and bought 2 mobile phones for our people. They were flip devices smaller than my hand. There was a camera lens in a small barrel mounted in the hinge. It could be rotated by thumb to point the lens forward or aft to take pictures. The pictures could be sent by text. We worked in an area requiring hearing protection. If I was talking on it, I would slip the top half between my ear and muff. It would hang there solid and I could continue working with both hands.

    Tried to describe this back in the states where the clunky Nokia's were all the rage. Nobody believed it could be so small and thin, let alone have a camera. Also bought my first memory stick in Korea back then. 32mb stick (yes, mb) for $40 USD. The 64mb's were too expensive. Nobody back home knew what those were about either.

    My first mobile phone of any kind was a Danger SideKick in March 2003. I kept using them as new models were released until Microsoft bought the company in around December 2007. By then it was clear that the potential of the platform would not be developed and it was time to move on, just as Rubin had moved on from Danger to Google to help develop Android. But the SideKick had a full suite of cloud PIM services and a walled-garden app store years before the iPhone or Android existed. It also had a superb physical keyboard. When I switched to a BlackBerry 8320 Curve at the end of 2007 in some ways I felt like I had taken a step backward. But I soon got into it and stayed until Passport.

    My last non BlackBerry phone was a Sony Ericsson W580 slider. Loved that phone. Been using BlackBerry's since 2007. I dabbled with a BlackBerry 7290 (big blue with the "colour" screen and jog wheel) for a bit in 2004 between my Moto V300 and Moto V635 but I wasn't ready (had no use) for a smartphone yet. After the V635 I switched to a Sony Ericsson W810 before getting the W580 slider. After that, its been all BlackBerry for me. Went back to the 7290 in late summer of 2007 (when the Curve 8310 launched) and waited until the Pearl 8110 launched in early 2008 to get that.

    Come to think of it, my very, very first phone consisted of two baked bean tins and a length of string.

    My first cellphone was a big black brick that had this earpiece that slide up to unlock the phone. It had a little purple alien in its ads on tv. Then I had an old Nokia brick phone. After that was a Motorola Razr. There has been many.
