    OK, I've got too much time on my hands...But, over the years I've owned so many handheld devices, I thought it would be cool to list them out now that I own the best handheld ever. Let's see your list.

    1998 Apple Newton MessagePad 100 (OMP)
    1999 Apple Newton MessagePad 130: backlight screen and enough heap to run TCP/IP stack

    2000 Apple Newton MessagePad 2100: awesome machine, with keyboard

    2000 Tandy Zoomer: GEOS with Grafitti software, before Palm made hardware

    2000 Texas Instruments Avigo PDA: Palm look-a-like
    1999-2001 Palm V, Palm Vx, Handspring Visor Prism, Compaq iPaq: these were all purchased by my employer for work.

    2002 Sony Clie N-610: color hi-res screen on Palm OS
    2004 Sony Clie TJ25

    2004 Sony Clie TH55: best pure PDA ever. WiFi, hi-res+, virtual Grafitti, Clie Organizer software with drag & drop.

    2007 Apple iPhone: best handheld ever. Phone/internet/iPod.

    Palm III
    Palm IIIxe (after someone stole my Palm III)
    Sony Clie T615C.
    Sony Clie PEG-TH55.

    I stopped bothering after that because I tended to use my cellphone/iPod more often to get calendars/address book stuff.

    My iPhone is on order. ;)

    I've had an ipaq 1940, a tapwave zodiac, a blackberry 7250, a blackberry 8703e, and now the iphone. Now if only I could get a few real games on the iphone I'd be a happy camper.

    Treo 650

    BlackBerry 8700

    Audivox SMT5600

    It's funny because even though the other phones had 3G, I never used the internet on them because it was terrible.. The supposedly "crippled" iPhone with Edge really does the internet much better , IMO..

    Each phone had it's share of strengths and weaknesses, but so far I prefer the iPhone over the others- even though it's definitely NOT perfect..

    I'm selling my BB stock based on this thread

    5 out of 8 former BB owners so far.

    I guess I count myself to make it 6 out of 9.

    The only reason that I had one is because the company I'm working for this summer gives one to all of their interns. I'd imagine that I might still use a BlackBerry when I get into the workforce, unless Apple (or Visto for that matter) create a workable alternative.

    i had a palm pilot. i can't remember which model it was, but i think it was the second iteration. i also had a palm m515 before i gave up on pdas altogether. too much of a hassle. i just want my contacts, calendars and email with me. i don't need the ability to edit documents so much, so the iphone suits me just fine.

    It was awesome for playing nes, snes, and gameboy games. Great pda but I really never got used to the Palm OS so much. It was a lifesaver though when my ipod mini died for those long walks on campus a few years ago.

    It ceases to amaze me why some of you folks would want to "chop" Apples phone and turn it into some frequently crashing, hacked up excuse for a handheld.
