    The new iPhone 5 reminds me of the PDAs that Sony released 10 years ago.

    When Sony introduced their first Clie S300, it took away many loyal Palm customers (including me) because they added a lot of extra features that Palm didn't have at that time, such as external memory card slot, jog wheel, etc. Then Sony released a new one which they doubled the resolution (from 160x160 to 320x320), and then they released another one which added even more resolution on top (320x480). And eventually they were the first company to stuck a 2MP camera into a PDA, and they also introduced their personal UI (skin) on top of the PalmOS.

    This just reminds me of the good old glory days of the Sony Clie...

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I had a clie, they were great!!! I loved the size too! I wish apple would make a wider version!

    I might have to ask the boss to get me a galaxy note when it comes time to replace my work android phone!
