    RIM is going to set the world afire with this newest and latest device. Rumor has it that it will have Webkit browser too. RIM hopes that they will stop the bleeding and loss to the Android market with this device.

    I hear ya. I wonder how these kids today would survive without cellphones and texting? It wasn't all that long ago we had to wait until we got home to check the answering machine for messages

    Actually, I still have an old cell phone like that. Well not mine but my fathers. I think my father said it was well over a grand and it was a legit brick.

    Actually I never even had voicemail on my homephone until last year lol.

    I remember back when I was 10 years old, I was happy to get a bike and go out for hours upon hours. I didn't get my first cell phone until I was 16 years old. It had Snake on it and it made phone calls. Saved I think like 100 numbers.

    I remember the day when the word ”cell“ meant something in the human body and “phone” was something that hung on the wall with a rotary dial and cord.

    I remember in my teens back in the 80's [cough, cough] my parents had the mobile phone that you carried around like a purse with a shoulder strap and the unit was the size and thickness of the Yellow Pages, lol

    He11, back then you were cool if you had a portable boombox on your shoulder, these days it's Ipods or PS3's, lol

    I remember when my parents got their first cell phone. A bag phone from Alltel. Had the antenna you stuck on the car and ran the cord through the window.

    My first cell phone was when I went to college. It was a Nokia and was a Christmas present. I bought a belt clip that vibrated when the phone rang (no cell phones had vibrate, unless you bought a special battery or other accessory). Like some one else said, it held like 99 numbers (which I thought I would never fill up) and had Snake on it. I wore that game out. Text messages were unheard of too and would have been considered a needless luxury. I always checked my voicemail from a landline to save my minutes too.
