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. ;)

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.

Zodiac, nice. I always wanted one of those but never got around to getting one. Oh well, I've got my iPhone now :cool:

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.
