My first cell phone, the Palm Pre.

Such a great phone. WebOS is/was very under-rated.

You mean after the car phone?
In case any of you youngsters had no idea where Carphone Warehouse got its name ;)

My first real mobile phone was a Samsung SPH-N240. This baby was so small and awesome, I'd still use it if it had any features I wanted. It doesn't even support text messaging, which was the only reason I upgraded at the time (like 10 years ago at least):

This phone is a little over 4 inches tall, 1.5 inches wide, and 0.7 inches thick, and the screen boasts a whopping 128 x 64 monochrome display with a beautiful blue backlight. Battery life was like, two weeks :laugh: I still have it in a drawer somewhere!

I think it was this phone. The Qualcomm QCP 2700.


Yes I used to have one of these back when Celullar One was the biggest provider in Puerto Rico.

My first cell phone was an ipod, a phone, and an internet communications device.

Nope!

Well I have a student job at The Phone House (= Belgian branch of Carphone Warehouse PLC, largest mobile retailer in Europe) so I have seen a lot of phones and I can pretty much find my way around any phone. But I think Sony has always had pretty much the best features/price ratio you could ever get, their phones look good (easily distinguishable from other brands), their interfaces are really good, especially the featurephone ones.

But yes, I love Sony. I really want to go work there, hence the software development studies focusing on Android development + me wanting to go study in Sweden for half a year (Sony Mobile's Android development is mostly located there).

Cant argue with that, some days ago I was at my provider's shop deciding between an xperia s and my current htc one x. The xperia has one of the best designs I've seen, both phones where a beauty. But I decided for the htc because the xperia came with android 2.3 and because it was $200 cheaper. 'Surely there is something wrong with it at that price' I thought.
